Why in the world is the city letting the school dictate where baseball is being played. Seems like the school can fix up their own crappy middle school field for softball and leave the city park for summer teams. This is leaving little league out of a decent park to play in. My grandson plays little league and that middle school ball park is the worst ever. I don't care what the school says. There is no concession stand, no fence to hit a homerun over, crappy seating. Looks like a bunch of bullies got together and decided what everyone else was going to do. Little legue belongs at roberts park like it has been.

Just so you know, the field at the middle school is city property. It will be worked on and used for baseball only which will benefit all of the age groups in baseball and softball.

Doesn't really matter. It is a lousy field, not even big enough, not kept up at all and the "big stinky cheese" at the school thinks he can just take over everyone else's space. Who made them in charge? Did anyone notice the gang mentality they used? Perhaps the school needs to buy more houses and make baseball fields out of them. If the middle school is such a fabulous field, let the high school players use it and open up the old city field to the other players. Why can't more than the high school play on that field? That little coach don't own it. By the way, did he ever get certified? They can't seem to put him in one place for very long can they? There is another new coach up there without a degree. Wonder how many times they will move him around? We are watching.......

Ok, not going to argue the school politics, have to agree with part of that, but in your first comment you want kids to be able to hit it over the fence at roberts and now your saying that forsythe isnt big enough. With a little work forsythe will be a better place for youth baseball, more parking better viewing of game and bigger field, just need work on restrooms and concession stand.

As was said before, if it is so great, fix it up for the school teams, soft ball or high school. If the school wants to put that much money into it rather than using the field they already have, let them fix it up for their own teams. It doesnt have concession, and fixing bathrooms, extending the field , putting in a mound, dirt and all that is costly. The seating is awful. That tells me they are going to slop something together to get by. It doesnt make sence.why camt the school let someone elde play on their field? More than one game a night can be played. Something smells really bad about all of this. And look who's behind it......not the city. Sheep dont make their own decisions.

Go to this address. Check to see who has what qualifications in any mo school. Cabool has one teacher that has NO degree Hired as a substitute for full time teacher pay with coaching pay. It's a highschool PE position. There are tons of peoplewith a PE degree. Why hire one without a degree of anykind?????Why would you do that if you were so good at managing money?

The school could fix the Forsythe park for their own. Football has nothing to do with softball. They don't use it at the same time. Fix it up for softball, leave t-ball and coach pitch where they were and leave little league at Roberts Park where it belongs. Who made them boss and why is the city administrator going along with this stupid idea? Whenever those 5 men from the school that were mentioned in the newspaper article, are moving their mouths, you can bet there is sneeky underhanded goings on covered by a pack of lies. Davis is having some delusions of grandeur by thinking he can just do what he wants in this town. He doesn't care how he effects others. We need to get him out of our district before he bleeds it dry, to pay people to pretend to like him.

Softball will be played in the fall so it would be during football season, jr high and y football use forsythe for practice, if you would stay on topic you would have seen that they were considering adding jr high baseball, so the field would be fixed up and used for youth baseball. If you want to talk about the politics of the school system create a new link to do so, i stated before that i agree with the problems, lack of abilities or attitude issues in the system, but the plan for the fields is the only logical decision, roberts park is too small for most 12 yr olds, good for them to play on same field that they might get to have jr high ball on.

You must be a coach. Seems like then, whenever the school gets something they won't let it be used. Why can't anyone use the old baseball field? There is NOWHERE for litlle league to practice. The high school will be done with baseball by the end of school. It's all locked up so no one can use it, then they take over Roberts Park and leave the run down field for the kids that will use it all summer. And for your information, the field at Roberts was the correct size but the one at the middle school is not. So IF the school pony's up a ton of taxpayer money for this ridiculous charade, they will make sure they lock it down so no one can use it. We REALLY need to get people voted in on the school board to get this fool out of our school system. If this is their collective ability to problem solve we are in trouble. There is a HUGE amount of waste going on starting with that group that was in the paper.

Cook field is set up for high school play with grass infield, the age group that fits that field plays on that field. If it wasnt locked up the pitchers mound would be the community bike ramp and it wouldnt be long til it would be back to the condition it use to be. There will be less issues with practice time if forsythe is fixed up, hasnt really been an issue before so really wont be with another field being used. And the way i figure it will be taxpayer money either way whether it's city or school. Of course a lot of money could be saved if people would come together and volunteer some time to working on facilities like communities use to do, if your so worried about little johnny playing on a crappy field. almost every town in this area has got together and raised money and donated time and supplies to fixin up the youth fields, it wont be perfect immediately but it will have to be better with another facility

You're a very passionate person. Maybe you should coach? I'm sure you have a degree as well, so you're the perfect canidate. Or! Have you been turned down, thus spawning your dramatic post? Now I'm watching........

Roberts park field is open to the public and I have never seen amyone use it for anything more than playing ball or practicing. Is tjete lighting at Forsythe? Are they putting that in too? Forsythe is not in bad condition because the public uses it. the school uses it. The school seems to think that we have pro football going on in this town and the only time to use it is to lose games. The football field could be used for practice, The middle school could use Cook field for practice then softball could use Forsythe field.I hope they do fix Forsythe up nice. But then if its nice, like the obvious coach whos on here answering, they are are afraid for the public to use it for fear of someone using it for a "bike ramp" I would love to volunteer for something i can use. Open Cook field up so that others can use it. Perhaps if the city owns all the fields, the public should take them back, and the school can buy more houses and make fields of them rather than parking lots.

Maybe the community WOULD pitch in and help if the elitist attitudes weren't so out of control.

All of us uneducated commons that are clearly unable to think for ourselves need to remember, once this snowball of entitlement gets too big it will be impossible to change its course, let alone stop it.

You're obviously a Cabool high school coach with your "canidate" instead of "candidate". Your spelling is as good as Davis's verb usage. What makes you think I don't coach? There are other places than Cabool. There is no dramatic post here. One of the posts asked why there isn't volunteers to help with the baseball field. Why would anyone want to spend time with any of the pretend "Christians" that think they own the school? None of them would give anything to anyone because they are too busy taking. No thanks to wanting to work with immature acting posers....I can't be turned down for something I don't want. I would like to see a BIG change in that school system starting with the top and going right on down the line starting with the high school.

Want to get rid of the biggest bully in town? Vote for two people that will get rid of the superintendant and his cronies. The man has GOT to go. His money management makes NO sense. This town is sick of seeing our tax dollars spent on buying the likes of houses for parking lots for a football team that hasnt won a game in years. Now the man is reaching out and trying to take over parks. What's next. He is bullying his way all over this town. I'm tired of him paying his cronies big bucks for coaching, principal ect. Let's look who gets paid how much for certain classes.......like yearbook, baseball coach, head coach, Spanish, football coach, volleyball coach.....the list goes on and on at the high school. Vote in people who are interested in getting the bullies out.

Speaking of bullies. Why don't you come complain tomm, and tell the CHS kids how you feel about their football program? We will see how much crap you talk then. You do know most of the coaches at CHS and CMS coach for free basically right? No, of course you didn't. Support the kids, and get over yourself. If you need some help, ill let the coaches know to look for you tomm. What's your name by the way? And what time will you be there? Dr Davis is very passionate about the town and the school. Get your facts straight, bully!

Wrongo about the coaches being free genius.....for that matter everything you posted is way off. I don't think anyone made a comment about the kids but about how money is being spent. Really lame try at trying to make it look that way.

From what i see there isnt any of the coaches do anything for free, less the volunteers, which i never heard of volunteer coaches until cabool. These coaches today dont put a second of their day into the program unless they are compensated for it, no extra mile here, lol
