It's between Ghom and Tehran now!

 

SEP-26 2006

Mr. Zolfagharian told us that on his latest trip to Ghom, Baseball officials in Ghom expressed interest in hosting this year's Baseball championship. Nothing is for sure yet, but Ghom is certainly a possibility. If the federation and Ghom Baseball committee do not reach an agreement, the games will probably be held in Tehran. The federation is trying to start the tournament immediately after Ramadan. The games are going to be in a double elimination format, with teams ranked based on last year's performances - the host team being an exception and ranked # 1 regardless of last year's performance. An example of the tournament format is printed below.

Will Hamid Mayeli Be The New Head of Umpires Committee?

It has been a few months since Abbas Nedaee stepped down as the head of Iran’s Umpires Committee. During this period countless unsuccessful attempts have been made by other umpires, coaches, and even players to make amends between
Mr. Nedaee and the Federation, but Mr. Nedaee has maintained that he is not coming back and the federation has not shown any real interest in offering him his old position back either.

During this period the Baseball family held on to the hope that since no official replacement has been named, eventually something would be worked out. Those hopes were shattered as there are now talks of naming a replacement for Mr. Nedaee. There seem to be several candidates with Hamid Mayeli being the front runner. Mr. Mayeli is an experienced umpire from Kerman who has been umpiring most of the important games lately.

Mr. Nedaee’s has been an integral part of Iran baseball federation since its establishment.  His leaving is the end of an era and he will be sorely missed.

For the first time in the history of Iran Baseball, the games will be held in two different cities simultaneously. After many negotiations between the federation and the two cities, it was finally decided to divide the teams in to two divisions, so both cities can host the tournament.

This year's tournament features defending champion, Tehran, hosting last years finalist ,Kerman,  2 time champion ,Isfahan, Gilan, Khorasan and the newcomer ,Mazandaran, in a very tough division. Meanwhile Ghom will be  hosting last years third place finisher, Semnan, Booshehr, and newcomers Karaj and Fars.

Teams will play in a double elimination format in the preliminary round, with the top two surviving teams in each division battling it out in Tehran.
