Remember when american legion baseball was special in Blytheville. Kids grew going to the games and dreamed of playing for them when they grew up.
Heard they won 3 or 4 games this year, what happened.

I can tell you who put the Cason's on the map though, that would be Dwight Williams. There was no finer Coach or man than Coach Williams.

Heard Mr. Williams was a great coach and respected his players! Very positive coaching!

Think coach williams played the best players, not how rich a players dad is. Also got the best players from missouri and northeast arkansas. Was special to be a cason and play for coach williams.

It's all about coaching, my friend...has nothing to do with powers that be or any of that nonsense. Good coaches attract good players and cash attracts good coaches. Get some folks together along with your local legion post, raise some funds and you will find a good coach.

Negative coaches have a difficult time instructing! All coaches need to check and see if they are instructing or yelling!

No doubt. White kids play most of the baseball these days nationwide and white kids have become a bunch of pu$$ieS. That is why you see so many Latin American players in the majors. They bust their azz to get out of poverty and baseball is the ticket. They don't have mama and daddy hanging over the fences passing out gatorade and towels for the little darlings who are on the latest and greatest travel team. Most of these kids don't even practice anymore because it is too hot or they have more than one game that week. It is a freakin' joke. Even the college game has become pathetic to watch. Today's white kid is an embarassment to the baby boomers who grew up in the 40's 50's and 60's.
