My kids have played for abbeville, in which my 3 yr old twins sat the bench in t-ball because they weren't good enough, always thought thats when and where u start learning the fundamentals of baseball butttt, then we switched to erath, loved it.... couldn't get my boys into hardball so I switched to NV, when we first started there...loved it now, it is so unorganized, no one wants to coach, so ur boys end up with a parent that simply stepped up so the kids can play, but don't know enough to coach..... I am from abbeville, but the parents that I've had to deal with, act like we owe them something well, i could care less how much money u make, whatever happened to "its for the kids"? So fed up with all the drama! good luck!
ok I cannot believe you will come on here and lie. Lol. Any league that offers tball to 3 yr olds doesn't even have players that sit the bench. Every single kid bats and every single kid plays the field. They put them ALL on the field at once. Lmfao. They don't even take score dude. U must b bored.

LBB123, I have also noticed that baseball is dying in the parish. There are many reasons IMHO for this. Kids are to pampered and stay indoors, can not handle the heat, Baseball is over the first week in June so all stars can play (most of the time the team is made up of coach's kids), travel teams, demands on winnings, whining by parents... the list goes on. I hope someone can come up with an idea to make kids want ot come out and enjoy it.

One thing I've realized is you can't make everyone happy...But sitting here talking about this league and that league is not helping. I also said things about Tommy, and would like to say "sorry." I still will not be putting my kids in his league, but that is my choice, just like everyone on this site has a choice. I've realized that we will all join the league that we want, some will continue to grow, some will fail, But it is such a waste of time to talk about any of these leagues because each of them do have dedicated parents that help to make them keep going. So if you don't like where you are, make a change. If you love where you are, then stay. My choice has been made, we don't play baseball cause we haven't been happy at any league we've gone to. But for all other sports my kids are and will continue to be with CAJUN YOUTH SPORTS.

well said Tori but i dont see why CYS has to bend and allow someone who is not needed to become part of our leaugue. Had the school board done as they have promised....and given us a lease when they promised to...then we would not be in this predicament. CYS has done what they have promised...why cant the school board do the same. When we were moved from J H Williams to the LeBlanc property, the league was promised a place to stay, grow and develop. But now we have a choice to join a sports league that isnt even there and accept their management staff if we want to stay. Sorry that isnt right.My kids play soccer, and football and softball and we always support the league they play with and always will.

We are not joining with anyone or league. CYS will be CYS, and Quality Sports will be on their own. Nathan has just agreed to give us a place to play, if he gets the land. Yes the school board should have given us a long term lease. I was at the meeting, and I asked that the land be given to CYS but it was voted on and the only two members that voted to look into it more was Fontana and Angela Faulk. The members should have considered how this will effect the 450+ members of CYS that this may effect. So people of Vermillion need to ask their board members about this decision. These kids come from each city in the parish, but it seemed like they weren't concerned with that at all. They did agree to keep enough land for the Erath softball field, just incase they need it. I thought that was a little crazy not to let us have our land also because we need it NOW!! I can say once again that Mr. Nathan Granger assured me that CYS will not be forced to join with Quality Sports, they will do their thing and CYS will do their thing.

You are correct Tori, I spoke with Nathan last week and I received the same message. I am looking forward to moving this project along.

Why not just make your own teams from school and church? The kids just want to play they don't care about anything else. The programs are just a rip off. Only SELECT players get to play. They pretty much suck. The Erath bunch are just about making money.

Teach your kids how to cut grass, clean, be dependable,and respectful. This will get them much further in life than baseball.
