Dave,

Thanks for asking about the Father/Son World Series.  for more information, go to www.msblnational.com, and if you and your son want to play, place your names on the "player pool" list.  Feel free to contact me at any time for more information...and by the way, I live in Elk Grove, CA...and while you're at it, take a look at our slow pitch alternative at www.fastballbsf.org.  -  Val
