SUNDAY FINAL Pre-Thanksgiving Showcase
November 20 2011, Irvine CA

Game Scores and Notes
The Batbuster/Surf City tournament does not keep a leader board, and games are played at five separate site, each with multiple fields.  The scores below were obtained by Spy travelling from field to field, seven in all, and observing games at Harvard Park.  Several teams Spy had not yet seen were observed on Sunday via games at Harvard Park.  Reporting problems were compounded by teams fielding players from their 14 and 16U rosters, who were not identified in the guidebooks given coaches.  Drizzling cold rain halted the last two rounds on Sunday.  As always, a very competitive showcase.
