    Very impressive. Why no home games?

    It's hard to believe a team in the Raleigh area couldn't find a field to play on.

    I'm guessing the high school in the area were booked up..I see their playing at a private school today? A lot of high school play in a summer league too. The ones that don't play NCAL?

    Wake County charges $100 per hour for 3 hour rental plus use of scoreboard,plus someone there to maintain,$150 for umpires,$50 for a dozen balls.That comes to ruffly $500 for a home game. They can't afford that . That is what is"hard to believe" in the Raleigh area!
