50 Teams !
Editor’s Note: After suffering through two years of covid-based tournament cancellations, fastballers from the USA, Canada and Mexico will converge on Las Vegas for one of the largest events in quite some time. The 15th Edition of the SCIFL’s “Last Vegas Road Trip” boasts a line-up of 50 Teams for 2022. Schedules and details below, three (NAFA style) divisions of play, i.e. AA, A Major and A.
This year the Las Vegas Road Trip XV is completely full with 50 team maximum. Teams from Canada, Mexico, and the United States are all represented in this tournament.
IMPORTANT NOTE RE: REVISED SCHEDULE –
Tournament results will be posted throughout the day at the SCIFL website so everyone can know when they play next.
The tournament will be using SCIFL rules. Teams will have the option to bat up to 10 players using the Extra Hitter (EH), a Designated Runner (DR), and a Courtesy Runner (CR) may be used for the pitcher or catcher ONLY but it must be the last recorded out.
All divisions will use the 3-game guarantee NAFA bracket. The championship games are scheduled for 3:00 PM on Sunday with no “IF” games on any of the divisions. All winners will have a paid berth to the NAFA World Series except for the A-Division which will have a paid berth for the Gold and Silver Champions.
Please keep in mind that with any tournament(s) the scheduled times and games may be pushed back a bit during the course of the day so please plan flights accordingly.
If your normal routine is to have a conference with all your players before the first pitch, please do that before the coin flip or better yet, while the game before you is in play so we can keep games running as close to on-time as possible. The umpires will be instructed to get you moving and start the game without wasting any time. Also, keep your teams moving in and out of the dugouts as quickly as possible. The courtesy runner for the catcher is there for a reason, to get their gear on while the inning is in play and not after the last out.
The USA Softball Bat Testing & Certification Program along with compression testing will be utilized in this tournament – NAFA tamper proof decal stickers will be provided to bats that pass inspection.
Bat testing will be conducted at Sunset Park in the center of fields 11, 12, 13, 14. In order for the bat to receive a tamper proof decal sticker it must meet the USA Softball Bat Testing & Certification Program by having 1) the ASA certification mark, 2) is not on the Non-Approved Bat List, and 3) passes compression.
Once the bat passes its testing it will be given an NAFA tamper proof decal sticker. Bats without a NAFA tamper proof decal sticker will not be allowed in the game. Players should not try to remove the tamper proof decal sticker because it will show a “Void” once it has been removed. Any bat with a sticker that looks like it’s been tampered with will not be allowed in play.
