I got there just before the 2nd game started. Twenty or thirty people in attendance, two tellers, I didn't see anybody betting but diddn't pay much attention cause I wanted to see the jai alai first. They had some great players from Dania, the place looks pretty good, clean and inviting, the players gave a great effort and the announcer was very good, but the BALL, WOW, that ball sucked and ruined it all. I'm hoping is a glitch and last minute correction to some issue with one of the glass panels and that they will be changing to a different ball in the future.

Later on I was gonna bet but I saw some dismal payouts and "refunds" and I didn't bet.

Benny deserves a lot of credit for getting the players to put forth an honest effort.   I'm sure the players hate this and believe its a joke.   Its hard to give a damn about this.

Thanks Jesus for the video.  Looks like an awesome setup for amateur play.  I just can't wrap my head around this in terms of watching these highly skilled pros tossing around a rubber ball.

The rubber ball is a temporary fix to a glitch they had. The are supposed to use a hard ball that supposedly plays very nice, and will do so when it opens in July. Keeping my fingers crossed, hope they can do that.
