Epling Middle School Baseball League?

hard to believe so many people are so envious of one family. I travel along Ragland Road several times a week, I have never seen the Eplings out there forcing anyone into their stadium.
Thanks to them, we have minor league baseball in Beckley, middle school kids get to play on a great new field and paid instruction is available for those who may want it. Parents will judge if the instruction is right for thier kid and are free to use it or not.

Then why did I sit through games at some of the crappiest fields in the region? The league is all an effort to get kids into Upper Deck "training academy". You folks and this league are NOT what you want people to think.
I'm sure the "Reverend" will have a response,and so be it. Ask any other parent whose kids have played in the middle school league. What a crock!
The league is not associated with the school system, either. DOn't be fooled. Why pay to play when there's Babe Ruth League? I made the mistake one season with one kid. I won't do it again. And yes, I am entitled to my opinion!
So lets be specific.

1- What field did you play on? These generalities really do not make sense.

2- The league Teams are are named after the districts. Why would they be part of the public school system?

3- You can play for Babe Ruth, no one has said you can't or demeaned that system for an avenue to play baseball. Poling does his best and his heart is in the right place.

"Pastor", don't you detail cars for a living? Maybe you should stick to that. I didn't say you demeaned anything. Poling is a GREAT, sincere man. You could learn from him. Again, washing cars is likely more your forte.

Anyway, I stated what I know to be true.Sorry you and a couple of butt-kissers don't like it. Too bad for you. Let me guess though....anyone who dares disagree with you and your family is "just jealous". MMMMMMHHHMMMMMMMM..........

First off Doug Epling may own a baseball complex, but does not own any mines.. He hires men, and contracts them out to Mining Companies, in other words, he makes money off of another mans labor. In turn I would like someone to investigate the death of Terry Craze, who was hired by Epling. and see how Doug Epling denied him and his family their 401k and life insurance!!!

What does his work as an Auto Detailing business owner, have anything to do with this? In fact, he is a respectable business man who from what I have heard, does an excellent job in his business.

Being rude to him (Matthew Epling)and then bragging about a failed babe ruth program is really funny! Here let me laugh for your remarks HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAA.... . ok now back to your remarks.

You call them butt kissers? Answer their questions, What fields are they talking about? I have been to many of the Middle School games, and everyone were on the Stadium grounds. In fact, ALL of my childs games were played there. So either put up or SHUT UP!

Matthew came out here and gave a legitimate answer. He said the price is 160 or so dollars... someone said it was 300. That person who said "300" was either lying or totally misinformed.

Instead of creating crap here, call the field and have Tim Epling the owner of the baseball league, give you the real answers. I guess that wont happen because your full of crap.

Exactly! That's the parents' choice - same as paying for anything else not available in the school system - piano lessons, dance lessons, gymnastics, karate

If you want to pay for your kid to be on a team or be a cheerleader - GO FOR IT - but don't complain about the price - whether it's $150,$165 or even $300. It's extra things you pay to spoil your kid. Yeah, I did some of those things, but I never cried about it - I did it because I wanted to for my kids to have what I didn't have & do what other kids were doing. Did they need it? gain a whole lot from it? Probably not...but I hope they appreciated it and learned team work, respect, following orders and sportsmanship; things lacking from many of the adults here.

The girls softball middle school league only played the championship game at the stadium. All the other games they played were played at Fitzpatrick park. Why aren't the girls given equal opportunity

Wasn't it their first year? I think if there are only 4 teams, they should not have softball at all. How many baseball teams did they have?

And from the sound of the softballmom, I know if I were a decision maker, there would be no more softball there. Let em go back to travel leagues and little league. It aint worth it.

Let's see, Tim Epling owns the Middle School league. He organizes the league, schedules the league, overseas the league, and he "Dont Work"... really?

If he oversees the league, he does a piss poor job some of the teams are run like a dictator is in charge when you bring something to tim he dont have the balls to say anything to them and the only people that gets hurt are the KIDS grow some balls tim and by the way insurance only costs about 1000 dollars for the entire league to be covered so tell another lie

The facts and only the facts!
ALL of the MSBL games are played at Epling Stadium. It is the best quality of youth baseball played in southern WV. Each team has the best players from each of the school districts. I see the games a couple of nights a week. It's like the all star teams from each district every night. My only complaint is...all this baseball and no hot dogs!

The same amount of high school teams make it to Charleston every year. And Wyoming East won the AA Championship!
