I can assure you that if you think that it is all fun and games behind the scenes it isn't. You have no idea what the VOLUNTEERS in any organization gives up. They give their time, their family's time, their effort and everything thing that goes with it and it certainly isn't for trips or themselves it's for the children. Each and every one of them.

So then make sure the re election date is listed in the Newspapers and no secret meetings and a complete finance report is on hand including money from concessions

Unless you were a coach or official volunteer, you can't run for board positions the following year.

The meeting dates are always in the paper and like any organization there are financial reports for every dime.

BSG Little League needs help bad, but the "powers that be" want to do everything themselves.(i.e. if anyone else tries to help they must be trying to take the head honcho's spot) The games themselves have been ok, getting to the game has been disastrous. no schedules for the April until after opening day (4 days after). May's schedule wasnt finished until the 2nd week of May. if you were not special enough to be able to make your own schedule you were pretty much left hanging. The timing of games was ridiculous too. start a game for your 6, 7, or 8 year old at 7:30 (scheduled time) is a joke. they are always behind so the poor kids end up finishing at 10:15 on a school night. ALL season long. Everyone else in the county starts at 5 & 7 AND you dont start new innings after 9 (Little League rules) on a school night. Oh yeah no rules here either.....unless they help out the head honcho's teams in someway.(there are problems than I can list) Wish we could get it together, but too many people want to run it into the ground.

Clintwood just does not want to play with such a crazy league. From Mandy Bakers own mouth it came that she has repeatedly messed up schedules, games and the whole league that she is so afraid no one will take games with Big Stone next year. She has single handedly ruined her husbands name with everyone. If I had a child that played for Big Stone I wouldn't let them go back until she is removed from anything to do with little league. She was over heard twice talking as loud as she could about her martial problems saying Tim took off with his ex wife and cussing about in front of children and their families. Please Big Stone Gap know who you are letting run something before you have no sports for your children. Jodi

It seems she did do a better job, Mandy talked about how bad it was messed up in years past but as I understand it the league was worse off this year then it has ever been. They also doubled the cost for kids from $20 to $40 whose pockets did that line because fit con charged $7 for shirts that leaves $33 from each kid plus all the proceeds from the concession and then fund raiser money plus large donations from companies plus on opening day they sold tickets on stuff that was donated by coke. The kids didnt even get trophies or anything showing for anything. Guess little league will be funding Mandy's weight loss surgery she is planning . The town should bring back Babe Ruth at least the kids were appreciated in that league and they answered any questions the parents had with out making it a fight, they had schedules out on time and umpires for every game heck even Melissa did all that stuff.

You are all right. It has been an absolute mess all season and all stars is reving up to be a fiasco. Apparently if you have money, you are in. Donate concessions or uniforms and your kid is golden. Let your kid play hard and put in time.....just hope the coach is watching the game and not the donations. It happens all the time in small town politics but this is getting ridiculous. The kids didnt get trophies or even a medal this year, but some of the all star teams got brand new uniforms donated by parents (not the sponsor t-shirts like the regular season teams wear). So if this is to "save" little league money where it the savings going?

The money is going in Mandy Bakers pocket maybe funding her families vacation. She is a spiteful vindictive person and if she can't take it out on adults she takes it out on the children by taking them from all stars and putting them down. There is a petition going around to have her removed from little league if you come across it please sign it lets get this mean woman away from out children.
