Class A has been our program's goal since we got into college ball. So to get the chance to play it at Nationals was a huge boost for us. We learned a ton about the format and all but one of the players there last year will be back, so we'll have plenty of time/a little experience to prepare if we chose to follow that path.
The flipside is it even though we got a good feel for the fields before AA, getting stomped on at the class A event set us back a bit. It was also costly and despite our "physical prowess" we were pretty worn out. It was also annoiying with the A/AA schedule conflicts
Regardless it was the most ball I've ever got to play, I loved the format, I think our team could be really strong with some work: so I would argue it's well worth it. Lawdawg or some of the other AF boys might have another opinion...
