We need some new people to take over the baseball association. Teams aren't picked the way they are supposed to be. How can it be called a blind draft when you coaches pick whoever they want! Practices need to be scheduled due to the fact some teams cannot practice on the fields. Parents need to bring their kids to the game or get kicked off the team. Umps are biased, not all of them! Where is our 85 dollars going to? I mean the concession stand is outrageous...so they obviously have more than enough money to improve the fields! And for 85 dollars all the kids get is a shirt and a trophy?? That's all of 20, if that! The restrooms are horrible!! So much for keeping my money in the town I live in but, I'm going to another town for baseball next year. Where is the organization here??? Don't tell me because the the people who run it work, because I'm sure we have plenty of willing home makers that can do an equivalent job!!

Every year vollunteers are searched for. As for the price, there are several factors. Paying Umpires, balls, pitching machines/tees, field rental (from the city), insurance, socks, jersey, hat, numbering/lettering on jerseys,trophies, and probobly a few more things that I am overlooking. Coaches aree supposed to acquire a practioce field. Blame your coach if no place or better yet, sign up to coach. We had to beg people to do it this year. Coaches pick whoever they want because they are drafted after tryouts. Tee ball and beginners are RANDOMLY placed. As for the fields/restrooms, they are owned and operated by the city so call them and complain. And to you and all the other homemakers, we would love to have you help out. Ask for a board member at your next game and they will put you to work.
