  1. I’d like to know how these guys got into the championship round. They went 2-2 in pool play losing to a mediocre team from Lincoln, NE (whose only win in the tournament was against the PP) and got smacked around by a solid team from Idaho. They also had a game rained out. Did they buy their way into the championship bracket? They certainly didn’t earn their way in.

    Bob in Omaha, it appears to me that the officials in charge of managing the Decker World Series could have answered this question in Omaha. It would seem that your interest lies in slandering the Power team and their championship. A question that one might ask is, how did you learn of this website and why would you publicly look for answers in Greensboro rather than in Omaha.

    It seems that a little Mary Kay makeup may be in order here. Green is not that difficult a color to cover, unless it comes in the form of envy or jealousy. If this is the case, it may be a little more difficult, because you see this form of green comes from within and is not easily covered or hidden. That being said the only thing that I can recommend is to apply a little class and you will look a lot better.

  3. We did loose 2 games and got in as a wild card team and believe it or not faced a team in the semi-finals that finshed sceond in connie mack world series. then in championship we faced a prep team that did not have a loss in Omaha until they faced us. Mike Dimock threw a great game in game 1 and Logan Self threw a good game in game 2 which was the championship. Just people quit hiding behind a wall and tell us your name you want to talk about 17-18 year old kids talk about them and be a classy as you want but in my book you never will be a man if you want to talk about a bunch of kids or talk how they bought way in. Bottom line is champs and please bob in omaha tell us your name we would love to know who you are me and my coaches as well as my kids. We would really like to know who you are and how you can talk bad aabout these kids. Robbie Jones thanks for speaking up and you know if you are in Greensboro tell me a team to play adn we will play anyone we want fear from no one.

  5. I don’t think anyone has doubts about the team, just that when we are able to follow what goes on in tournaments, we expect to see the same written here from the team.

  6. Congratulation PP players and coaches. Great tournament and you should all be proud of your achievement. I don’t understand why there is so much anger and jealousy from some of the readers. You should be proud of how these young men are representing the area of Greensboro.

  7. Hey Bob,
    Forgive me if I make a dumb assumption here…but even in racing it’s not the qualifying round that determines the winner but rather the one that crosses the finish line first. Your record and wins put you in the championship round…obviously your team was good…we were just better, you just got beat 10-4. And money didn’t buy that one!!!
