No I think I have correct information. Why were the pony division boys wearing La Mirada colors but their uniforms said "FULLERTON" All Stars???? Don't tell me I have incorrect information. And I would love to talk to Scott if he would return my phone calls. I do understand that La Mirada paid for the tournament fees but would not allow them to play for La Mirada.
Please explain to me what part of what I stated is not true???
Scott clarifies and explains your questions here!!!!! Thanks Scott Anderson. You ran a great league and it looks like we have some big shoes to fill :) Best of luck to you and thank you for everything!!

That is correct. I personally would not approve a La Mirada team that had only 1 La Mirada Resident on it. Our all-star teams represent LMBA, but also the city of LM. I could not sign-off on a team and I personally did not sign any paperwork or, pay any PONY team fees for this Pony team. This team issue was also given to the Athletic Council of the City of LM for review and they declined any exception to their policy of residency for our teams.
If someone is trying to reach me.... I don't know who you are or, what # you're calling.
The best person to talk to about this though is Luis Cruz. He worked with PONY and Fullerton Pony to put this team together. He can answer any questions you have about whether this team was LM or, Fullerton. His phone # is available on the www.lmba.org website under the Board tab.

Scott, you've been straight up and a stand up guy for the LMBA. Your guidance will be missed. Are you telling us that the LMBA all stars were represented by non-residents? and that Cruz acted outside the realm of the league by-laws to create a team IN SPITE of the fact that you and the city did not approve?

LMBA had a group of pony division players who wanted to finish out their LMBA playing experience with all-stars. The problem was noted when the team residency was evaluated and they only had the 1 LM resident on the team. I couldn't approve of them and the City didn't either. So, they were just going to do travel ball or something instead.

Luis, in his PONY Baseball work, learned that Fullerton Pony didn't have a Pony division team either. PONY really wanted to see Fullerton, as a hosting organization, have a team out there so, Luis connected the group of LMBA players with Fullerton Pony. The City of Fullerton and Fullerton Pony did not have an issue with the residency therefore, it was a team of LMBA players playing for Fullerton Pony.

Luis would be the best person to answer any additional questions.

Its good see see LMLL and LMBA have the same idiot parents starting crap as the other leagues. New board members are always welcome but it is easier to talk with ignorance than to try to understand.
Help instead of criticizing. And no getting your way doesn't mean it is wrong, bias or unfair. It probably means that it is fair and correct if you aren't happy.
LMLL always welcomes new board members? That's funny. In over 3 months of games played, Saturdays all day & 3 weeknights of games. Memberships were taken twice. 2 days and a total of 4 hours. So if you didn't sign up, you don't vote nor can you run for the board. The voting was help at the LM resource center on a Friday night. So with over 500 kids in the league..at least 1000 parents, not including aunts, uncles & grandparents. There were about 30 members. And at least 20 of those were already board members. It was so hush hush the board had to bring more people on. Not enough people ran for the board. You can argue all day long. These are the facts. Don't believe me....ask around.

You are correct! Fullerton did not pay for the tournament fees. LMBA cut the check.

LMBA did NOT cut a check for the Pony All Star Team. They were able to play with no cost to either league. Curious, get the facts before you comment!

If I really said any of this to you, your wife and more importantly, your son, I would think as a parent you would confront me face to face. For you to write down these lies about me and to say for me to rot in hell, you have some serious issues you need to deal with. I have no idea who you are or who your son is. If you would like to be a man and talk to me face to face, you know how to get a hold of me. I will wait for your response and look forward to discussing this matter with you.

Hey Luis,
Heard you're the new President. Finally got your dream come true for manipulating a youth league the way you see fit. Only took 7+ years to get to the top. I guess no one else ran against ya. By the way, are you an actual La Mirada resident now or do you still use your fathers address to skirt the LM residency requirements for board members?

Don't they charge you to vote over there? I know when Dwight was President you didnt have to pay and there were hundreds of ballots and held at the field. I heard they started charging when the district started running the league a few years ago.
