I understand even though School sponsored that this program is being run by a non school board employee? I keep hearing how un fair some children who are not high class are being treated? Who do you complain to?

That would be mr. Grady Lingerfelt,lazy no balls coach of the Erwin Blue Devils. If your parents don"t suck his ass, your child never see's the field for any length of playing time.Parents must mow his lawn,clean flower bed, an also do inside house work.By the way my child does not play for shady Grady, but i have personal knowledge of his favorite's program. He has run off at least 4 girl's in the last year that their parents did not meet Mr shady's requirements.

Is there not someone who can do something about this I hear that the star player was told to leave for no reason?

That is very true.She asked to play firstbase, when not pitching,the young lady just wanting to play her senior year.Mr shady's take on that clean out your locker, you are not part of the team anymore. Any coach worth his salt would have had her run pole's or maybe said no,i have someone else playing that position.Shady has wanted rid of this fine young lady for over a year,he now has his wish.

Transformers more than meets the eye.
Did not this same person quit last year and was allowed to come back? I think there has been trouble even when the 4 time all state pitcher was pitching over playing time. If this player went to first base as you said where was the one playing first supposed to go? It takes more to play than just being a fielder or pitcher. They must also have to be able to hit. Could she do that or was she dh'd for? Correct me if I'm wrong.
And I don't think day has any business with his nose in this one.Some times the trouble just isn't worth fooling with. Any coach has to do what he thinks is best for the TEAM. And if one person is disrupting it only thing he can do is eliminate the problem.

Maybe all you post little league coaches should start your own team. Everyone's daughter gets their 3 outs and 1 at bat.maybe you guys could run it like the football program. Playing for state championships is way overrated .

My baby girl is the prettiest,smartest,fastest,swe etest,strongest,and by far the best player on the field and if you don't believe it just ask me. Our coach is just mean. Let my baby play!!! Oh yeah. Best hitter,base runner and pitcher that this town has ever seen.all the colleges know her name.

Mr. Day, Maybe you should spend an afternoon at the ball field & talk to some of the players and folks in the stands and they can enlighten you. There is always two sides to every story. I hope you focus the same amount of time on the player as you do on Grady. Threats and negativity shouldn't have to be tolerated!

Grady Lingerfelt knows what he is doing. If he didn't the UC softball program wouldn't be so successful. A sour apple will ruin the whole basket and it needs to be tossed. I'd take a lesser player with a better attitude anyway over a lil spoiled twit.

If this is the same player problems started even before she got to high school. At first there was the threats of her going to Elizabethton to play but that didn't work. Then the constant complaining that she should be pitching over the all state pitcher. Then the quit and the coach let her come back. Them the constant complaining about not pitching every game.The first base bit I don't know about but I do know she couldn't hit a lick. Senior or freshman it doesn't matter the coach has to play the best player at each position for the best of the team not one player.Life isn't fair that is just the way it is.Team play means making sacrifices and bench time is one of them. And for parents to get on her talking about the coach like this isn't what is best for the team. That just shows that they don't care for the team just them and theirs only.

Let's discuss the lady blue devil who played thridbase a couple years ago.She played excellent 3rd,an was tearing the cover off the ball,when Grady, got his rear end chewed off by another player's mom. That girl could not hit or field but that was ok ,with Grady he benched the good player an started this other girl ,who could not hit a beachball in slow motion.Letting the other girl quit the team, right before the playoff's started.Also forcing K.P. an Shea out also,he is number one jerk.How many state champs has he had since all this started? Let me answer that not any,an he can kiss this year's state title goodbye after dissmissing this years star pitcher.By the way she is an excellent batter.

Shady has always give in to the ass chewers and kissers. I think he treats his seniors the way he does is so that the team can always be called a young team and that way it won't look so bad on him when they get beat out. Always catered to a certain few that has players that shouldn't even be allowed in the dugout must less on the field but are anyway in order to keep the big mouths shut.I don't know the circumstances but from what I've seen and heard the past 4 years this one may have been warranted.I know for a fact a lot was said because the 4 time all state pitcher was pitching instead of this girl. And I mean said to whomever would listen all over town.

Is this the same player that I heard was going over to Happy Valley and throwing them batting practice trying to help them beat her own school.Sounds to me like she wasn't much of a team player by trying to hurt the team. What did the team do to her.Attitudes like this make it hard for any college coach to recruit them. If everything that I've heard has happened in high school by her and hers nobody will sign her.How many times has she quit only to be allowed back. Griping, complaining threats to quit about playing time. Is anybody dumb enough to think that coaches don't talk to each other.
