We had a great chance for Allan Crawford(great coach) and then another shot for Bobby Mccullogh(great coach). We get Jason House(sub par player an even worse coach). Whats wrong with the board thats why South Pem. Baseball sucks.

They didn't want an older person, they want someone who is young and likely to stick around awhile!

OUCH, that's a little harsh on Jason. He's just doing the job he was hired to do with what knowledge he has. You should blame EVERY bit of it on our School board. They haven't cared about the Baseball program in a long time. They should have gotten us a decent coach when Aaron New left here. THAT'S the problem!!

Well to defend jason a little bit its not that hes a bad coach its the lack of talent in this town if the parents gave a damn about there kids and get out and play with them a little bit instead of putting in front af the tv or a video game then we would have a decent team again that the problem everyone want to point a finger at sombody else and not take resposability for there selves if you want your kid to be good at baseball dont wait till their in high school to start em playin get out and play with em now dont put all the blame on jason i for one knows that he knows that game and is a good coach
oh whatever

He could care less. Seen a kid work his heart out trying to learn the game, had some potential, parents worked with the kid, but House didn't have time for him. All the kid needed was some encouragement. Didn't get it from that coach! Stop blaming the parents when some of them would love nothing more than to see their kids succeed! Oh, and by the way, House told the parents that the kid would be benched because he didn't have time to work with him, not even with the parents help! Kid wasn't even given a chance! So shut it! None of them care about hose kids.

If you are not a teachers child or a coaches child or a school board members child forget about anyone helping the kids who don't get help at home. Remember we have a lot of kids in Steele and nationwide being raised by grandparents who don't have the stamina as a young parent would.

It's not just the baseball team.It's all school sports.Coaches have their picks and to heck with the ones that aren't on the popular list.The volleyball coach this year let every girl that tried out this year on to the team.But there are certain ones who barely got off the bench.I'm not asking for special treatment.Just a little fairness.

jason sucks as a coach. I agree the school board kids that play now, would not have had a shot to be on the team. Thats why these parents get on the board so their sorry ass kids get to be a star in the big town of steele. Dont worry Carter kids will come back and work for daddy.

At south Pem its all about the school board and their spouses. That group of husband and wife teams rule the school.

So what is more important? Winning or making sure everyone gets a chance to play?

Well,smarty,they didn't win very many games with the ones that got to play,so I don't guess it would have hurt to let the other girls try.

It's far more important to make sure all of the kids get to play than it is to win. It is just a ballgame.
The coaches should spend more of their time helping the ones that they deem are not as talented instead of boosting the more talented ones,and their favorites and using all of the time on them. If the kids got equal time of training , there probably wouldn't be that much difference in their performances.

It's just a game, Dude. How many people do you know from this area coached by local coaches have become rich through high school baseball or any high school sport and coach? You might as well buy lottery tickets to get rich.

So by doing that, you're saying you're ok with your kids being at practice until 8 or 9 pm to ensure that "everyone gets a turn." If I'm not mistaken, here in the past month, there were a couple of parents complaining that their kids were already being kept too late at practices.

Obviously you don't know a whole lot about sports. Do you watch professional or collegiate sports at all? If you did, you would know that not everyone gets an equal amount of playing time. That's just the way it is in sports. If you are worried about every single kid getting equal amount of playing time, then you should just stick to T-ball. It's the only organized team sport that every single participant gets the same amount of time.
thats why people play

Shorten the practice if it is too long. If you aren't going to play them all ,then in the beginning, pick your best players and send the others on their way and tell them they aren't good enough and you don't have time to work with them and you really don't want them on the team. Don't let them sit the bench for a whole season hoping that someone will help them learn to play well, which is what they are there for ,to LEARN to play, while they watch you work with the other kids and ignore them as though they weren't there. If they aren't good enough don't waste their time and lower their self esteem. I will be watching to see how many of these kids at Steele go on to the Major Leagues. lol. Get Real!

That was the point I was trying to make in one of my posts.Now days every kid makes it on the team.Whether they can play well or not.And i think the coaches do that because they either don't want to hurt the kids feelings or the parents raise a fuss because their kid didn't make the team.Well they aren't doing the kids any favors by doing that because later in life they think they are entitled to any job they want or anything else they want .And their thinking is "Well it doesn't matter if I'm not trained to perform a certain type of job.maybe I can learn along the way."And in some cases it doesn't work out that way.

It's just a game. It's not a job or job skill activity. There is no entitlement there. Let the kids have fun and play a game of baseball while they are young and can enjoy it. ALL OF THE KIDS!
