I have attended many games both in Fannin and other counties. The problem I see is the fans in the stands are the worst I have ever seen. People forget that it is for the kids not the parents bragging rights.
The parents actions have even made it to the high school level.

Fine, then don't let your kid play. It doesnt do any good to sit around bitching about it. Get involved, Coach a team, help with Concessions, anything to help make the kids have a good experience and have fun. Because in the end THAT it what is most important.

my kid will never play baseball in Fannin again because HE doesn't want to! He his self seen the bs behind the seens, and is far as coaching you have to suck off one of the board members to even think about having a chance of being a part of it! The only way one of my kids will ever come back is if Bernie is in charge of it! Everyone else can kiss it!

Well it is in the REC. now , well kinda but Bernie isn't over it. Brandon still has a man doing his job. Even though Brandon is on the REC.board... He want's to keep some control. Maybe he can get Johnny to give him another job that he can run $.00000000

The parents are the problem with our baseball. They should move all the bleachers out behind the center field fence so the kids can't here them make fools of them selfs at the games. Let the kids play, let the umps umpire and please let the parents be more grown up than the kids.

Rebel for life your dumb. If I couldn't find nothing better to post than that I'd sit at home and shit my mouth. Obviously you haven't been apart of the baseball program or u would be upset to. As for Fannin baseball all the talents gone anyway cause the run it of now we aren't even competitive in all stars. I think we should have somebody run it who doesn't even have a kid in the program now that would be the way to do things. Fannin baseball sucks and if you like it we no what u suck

Cute. Parents who try to live their lives through their children. Through sports no less.

Pathetic.

Don't like it? Walk away. No one is forcing you to stick around, support them, etc.

Why do you think the kids are leaving and playing travel ball? The same reason I took my son and went to Play travel ball. The parents are impossible to deal with. I know because I was a coach. When you go to Pickens, Gilmer, union or just about any where else you do not have this problem. And yes the problem was here long before the Holloways were here. People got real bad when they stopped teams from Loading up with the best players. Fannin was the only county around that was still letting this go on.
Let the kids play. Quit telling your child that he is the best ever when he sucks. It has showed up in the high school now. People demand that their child start as a freshman and when they don't they try to get the coach fired. If Fannin had the cut policy back half the kids that the parents are fussing about would not evens make the team.
Please let the kids play, it only a game at this level. Sit in the stands and enjoy your child. It will be over before you know it and it will be to late to change your ways. Your child will remember baseball as something that mom and dad fussed about not that it's a great game.

That is a bunch of B.S. I didnt know anyone in this town and I helped coach my youngest sons Coach pitch team. Thats the problem with A-holes like you. You want to run down Fannin baseball but arent willing to get off you sorry ass and do anything to help make it better. I say good riddance to you.

My kids played for 6 years in Fannin before we went travel. I worked very hard on the fields and coaching. It was a pleasure working with the kids. The parents were not. I see other counties baseball and can see the difference. The biggest problem I see is the dads (coaches) worry more about winning the championship than teaching the kids how to properly play and respect the game.
Trust me I have coached and even umpired around a lot of the problem parents and I do know what I talking about. This goes back into the early 90's when most of the parents who are causing the problems were playing them selfs.

Agree, most of the problem is the red neck parents in the stand making asses of themselves. I hear they have hired Eddie O'neal to straighten out the mess.

I agree. Nobody ever been paid to run the baseball program. I thought that's why we had Bernie. What are we paying him for. So tired of the earl Johnson power trip. This is what happens when he don't get his way. We hAd a meeting a while back and had several people volunteer to run it. These people we got in here now are doing the samething that everyone's complaining about. So for those of you who haven't played here the last couple of years shut your mouth you don't no what your talking about

If Blue Ridge baseball were still about the kids, don't you think that things would still be done for the kids? Where are all the things that made baseball in Fannin county truly enjoyable as a kid? The team practice where we all sat around and picked the team name and colors that WE the kids wanted? Everything about Fannin Baseball compared to Rec. Department baseball has been done to increase the convenience of the people who think they are elite and too inconvenient to find local business to sponsor each team. Instead we brand them with no identity. Even in some malformed attempt to create league parity they have ruined it further. When we grew up, we knew who was going to be on our teams from year to year and allowed the coaches to become familiar with what each of the children needed from year to year basis.

Oh well guess this will be something else that will have to go before Mr. Rolston with.This is OUR tax money... Who is in charge?? And were is the money? UCB.. Just ask our ELECTED men to show us how this if funded....

There is no conflict... Rita Kirby is a Rec Board member and works for the County. The Rec Board is an advisory board only with no compensation so therefore any person no matter where they work or if they are elected can be appointed to that board. I have seen the financials and the tax payers are not paying for any of the baseball or softball programs. The money collected off of registration and concessions along with the money that was turned over to the county from the baseball fund is more than enough to cover the costs baseball will incur. I'm sure if you call the commissioners office and talk with Mr. Simonds or call the Financial Director Rita Kirby they will be glad to give you the information. I spoke to Rita last week and she is tracking all the money coming in and going out for all the programs.
