I saw several very good shortstops like Seamen playing this event. Guy can flat out play. If he won something like this , I'd think that might promote more involvement.I like that a relative unknown got his shot but without a steady dose of the top players at each event its gonna be tough for this to survive. If i'm a local promoter and i know going in that some of the game's biggest names won't play why bother?
If the top guys chose to stay home, others will come.
