    Why is it there are no results for the senior game allstars, played lasted nite…. Do we have to be on a winning viera team to get any kind of credit or a pic? Just because Viera has big pockets and gets their way its suppose to be about all the kids in the county not just Viera.. Hey you have a nice park but who was the stupid person that planned the fields out so we have a sun delay for well over an hr! Hey cant change the stupid but because Viera gets the tournys every yr PLAN the games accordingly around the sun if you will not the age group!!! Your concession stand is the worst in the county by far.. You open when you feel like. I waited an hr 1 game..Parents from all over the county hate going there because of the way they are treated… Hey Im a grandparent but a full time working 1 I might add… just letting you know that when I win the Lottery I will knock Viera off their very high Horse
    Shame on you for Catering to Viera Hopefully you realize sooner than later its about al kids not just the 1’s who have parents with big pockets GodBless you All
