All booked up! 26 players confirmed Posted on November 30, 2017 at 07:02:41 PM by Jeff "Laca" Conway
Sub - Belota
Anthony is now looking into a 20 game, 4-post program with doubles games to 9 points, singles to 7 and a couple of championship games to 10 at the end. There will be early games, middle games and late games just like real jai-alai. Organizers estimate the event to last 3 1/2 to 4 hours but will be fast paced. So what? Its a Sunday! And what a lineup we have! Players will participate in about 5 games - but they are only 9 point games with 4 teams a game. Note: This is all tentative and subject to change.
This would be an all-time record on the west coast of Florida for amateur players assembled at one time. The event will be filmed for syndicated national and international TV showings by the TVS Network.
Players will be asked to wear a helmet for this event because of the TV coverage.
Belota will ref the event unless needed as a sub. He is player # 27. Julio will be playing under his last name and his player name as he starts at Miami January 1st.
Mark Beiro will be here, Daniel is coming but can't play, Javier the cesta maker will be there and Bill Foster will throw out the first pelota.
The court will be in great shape, a full sound system in place, TV's, Busters Courtside Grill and Pro Shop will be open. Programs for sale and more.
