The rules seemed kind of quirky for a softball tournament and costly, too.
If your team gave up a home run, or got caught up in a double play, that was $125. A strike out was the same price and so was hitting a foul ball with a two-strike count.
And if the pitcher let the ball come off the bat for a grand slam? That was $500 big ones.
Then again, it all made perfect sense because this was a tournament to raise money to send city kids to camp.
