Bloody bandaids in the water in dugouts. And they wont let players bring in water jugs. Really, bloody bandaida. Boycott this joint. Lots of kids made the majors and college ball before lakepoint. And a lot will make it withour lakepoint. TRIPLE CROWN ALL THE WAY.

Really? I would have thought the jugs had lids. How did the band aids get in there? Or how did you see them?

Just to clear the air on the rules ... this is the reply I got from Lakepoint about players parking for free:

"If a player drives himself or has just other teammates in the car he will not be charged to park. If he drives and has non-players in his car he will be charged."

He also told me that the only person they had ticketed was somebody who refused to pay. Now I've heard two sides of that story.

This part is just stupid, though. What's the economic difference to LP who's in the car a player drives, except that they can arbitrarily decide to charge them more if they feel like it.

If they wanted to be logically consistent, they'd charge players to park (if it's really about recovering costs of parking facilities), or they wouldn't charge anyone to park that was delivering a player to the field (since one way or another, those players have to get to the game).

No water was coming out of the jug, but there was water in it. When we opened it we saw garbage in it, including a bloody bandaid.

How do you know one of the kids didn't put it in there? Either during that game or during a prior game? Mistakes happen. Dump the water and go ask for another jug. It's not the end of the world.

Sorry have to go with parents and players on this one. We have played over 10 events at Lakepoint and will play many more. Great facility BUT they have to amend their policy on water jugs brought in by players. Twice we have played a game until the 4th inning with NO WATER in the dugouts. We have to get their 90 minutes before game time in order to hit and throw.

In 102+ degree heat, players bodies can go into heat stroke in that heat in 90 minutes easy without water. That is just ridiculous for Lakepoint to force parents or players to pay $3.25 for a bottle of water. Teams already pay anywhere from $900-$2000 per team per tournament in entry fees PLUS parking.

I did see one coach walk on the field in a game during the 4th inning and scream as loud as he could to umpires, " We will NOT play another inning without water in our dugout!"

It will take coaches to band together and REFUSE to play their games until LakePoint and PG get together and provide some flexibility on water for players.

Why don't you just have your kid put his water jug in his bag? And snacks if you have multiple games? I can't imagine they would start checking players' bags.

When we played, they had plenty of people walking around checking in. I asked them for more cups and had it fairly quickly. I agree though, water bottle or gatorade in player bag!

IIRC correctly, that's actually what they did (check bags) when they first opened, and then stopped after an uproar.

It's actually really easy to sneak in food and beverages now, and a lot of people do it (including the prohibited sunflower seeds and tobacco), and I haven't seen any enforcement on the inside. Sneaking in a cooler would be a pain (but that's what catcher's bags are for, I guess).

I think they actually dropped the water price to 2.50 which is a little better.

We (my younger son) also discovered that they will give you a very small cup of ice water free if you ask! He must have drank 20 of them and brought me a few as well.

Bottom line is Lakepoint has something pretty special if they treat the fans/parents/players/scouts with a little more respect and not like ATM's they will be around for many years to come. If they made it a little less about the money they will quickly see that teams will be willing to do just about anything to play there. If they keep the money grab up teams will pass on the events and find other avenues to play in front of scouts as they are absolutely not the only game around.

Played on turf fields this summer, 95 degrees no water. Three years later same issues, this was at St. Pius, plus no concession.

I know most aren't happy with the LP fees, but WE are fortunate to have the facility so close to home. Look at the competition that comes each and every summer saving you from paying to travel chasing good baseball
