Guys let it alone for once, he's leaving and that's all that matters now.

For once think of her kids they are left having to deal with what the other kids at school are saying about their mom because they read it here on topix and it must be "true". Think about what they endure day after day. These kids did nothing wrong but yet are having to endure the punishment of he said she said and the name calling of anyones mother hurts no matter how awful your mom is.

Not that you would stoop to her level and do what she did to her kids but "what if it was your kids" all the other kids were talking about?? Those kids had no say and still don't so please just leave them alone and leave their moms name off topix. Whats done is done it can't be correct.

First off, Harrell is gone, and that is a most likely a good thing for HHS Baseball given the circumstances. But for the life of me, why is JoEllen in this mix? She has nothing to do with Harrell--his hiring or firing, or for that matter, high school baseball? Both of her sons graduated from HHS years ago, one of which has had an MLB offer and playing at a D1 college with National Recogniition. Do you really think think she cares about Hopkinsville High School Baseball? Just thinkin here..........

I (we) couldn't care less about anything that pertains to the HHS baseball team. I will tell you that it's sorry thatthere are quite a few alumni and former baseball parents that would be willing to donate money and time to the baseball team if their wasn't so much turmoil amongst the parents and when I say turmoil, I mean the middle school parents that really should not have a say in anything that goes on with the HS team. Someday, you will realize that the alumni are the backbone of any sports program. Bitching and bickering amongst yourselves will get you absolutly nowhere. One thing I learned when we were affiliated with CCHS baseball, the entire program is a team effort. I will give kudos to Josh Hunt and Kevin Crider for holding parents and players accountable for their participation or lack of participation in every facet of the game. That has never been the case at HHS. Too many parents think their kids are all-stars and they are, for the most part, mediocre players at best. If you can't contribute anything postive to the team, leave your negative opinions and comments at home. A program with great promise has been knocked down unnecessarily in the past two years. Of course, that's my opinion but I'm an outsider looking in these days. I wish the team nothing but the best in the future... I would really appreciate you leaving the Hageman's out of the equation. We really don't care! And thanks Shannon for the heads up!

Hey JEH--just so you know, the middle school parents are the ones that raise ALL the money for the team. Including last year's team and those same middle school parents are the ones paying off the bills from last year! There's no alumni or former baseball players paying off the bills and spending their Saturdays working for HHS baseball. It's pretty much all the 7th, 8th and 9th grade parents.

Well Susie, I sure hope you don't think you are special....I spent 7 years taking vacation time to get the concession stand ready for games and working every single game while most of the parents were sitting on their ass in the stands. If you would check your dates, you would realize that Justin graduated in 2010...at that time we owed absolutely not one dime to anyone...WHY would I give money to pay on bills from last year? In July 2010, if I'm not mistaken, we had in excess of $13,000. Where the hell did you guys spend that?

I think most everyone should be ashamed of how they are acting. Im not a parent of a past present or future player but have watched a very fine young man play proudly on the team for seven years. I believe that all of you people who consider yourself adults and parents should look at the example you are setting by being so childish and posting on here. Do I agree with Randy and holly ... No but that is for no one to judge. It's their business and should be left at that. It had no affect on the success or failure of the team. And all the wedid this you didn't do this crap well you just need to get over yourself. It shouldn't matter who has helped more and who hasn't. I commend you for your efforts in helping the team but take that pride home with you at the end of the night an know you did that for your child to have the best experience possible. Not for the glory of who has done the most. It's beyond immature and that is what is causing failure amongst the team. It's not a contest between parents. You all should be pulling together and cheering on your favorite tiger player. It does nothing but embarass the players to have so much of the back and forth and shows the commuinty the high class and standards you are putting forth. Do whats done is done. Get over yourself move on from the situations and act like a team not a rivalry!!!!!

Thank you. I think that is the most intelligent comment (other than mine) thus far...I Love my Tiger boys and hate the turmoil that they are experiencing. Parents, butt out...let your kids earn their spot and you work and make every effort to make their HS baseball experiece a good one.

Alumi parents and players do not want to come back to help people being so petty about who is doing what. They have paid their dues in paying off bills and spending countless Saturdays slaving the fields. It will always be a cycle of work and paying off from the year before and that's anything in life. Welcome to reality. It's part of being on a high school team. Get over it and do it for tiger pride or leave the orginization if it's such an imconvienence.

You are so wrong...and so right. I would love to come back and work in the concession stand...I thought I made it clear that I (or family) would go to Sam's...whatever was needed. No one has asked for any help with anything. I'm not going to beg someone to ask me to help so I have to take vacation time from work....You know who I am, You have my phone number...all you have to do is ask. NOW...enough...this just make the baseball team look bad.

Well, our travel team happened to play against Mr. Harrell's team a few years back, and I use the term Mr. lightly. His behavior was a disgrace: From yelling at our players when a ground ball was it to them, to yelling at our coaches to sarcastically telling us he "hoped" we had a safe 2-hour trip home. He's lucky he didn't leave with no teeth!!! As a parent of a high school player now, I want a coach who not only knows the game but at the very least carries himself professionally. This guy was a piece of work and a disgrace. How some of those Hoptown Tiger parents supported this guy makes you wonder about their priorities. Hopefully the HHS program will make a good hire of baseball knowledge and integrity.

This guy is gone and things will be better. What I cannot understand is how these parents kissed this creeps ass. Some of the mothers would get on their knees and suck this guy off just to get their son some PT. Holly was not the only one he was messing with. She did not get a cherry. You know who you are! Get behind the next coach and I know they will get a good one and stop with all of the bull and drama! Go Tigers! Do you think he will get all of her money and send her back home? YES

Why is everyone is so concerned with the x couch and that his girl friend is married, He did his job and did it well , now let's see how many teachers and others there are having affaires or have had. Hum want to take a survey .right there in the school behind closed doors.. But guess what that is their business just like it was the coaches business who he dated . I am sure he had plenty wanting the chance.
Not everyone believes that a player should get away with crazy things just because they are good , like drugs, being arrested on week end for drugs and still be allowed to play the next fri. That should be the concern not that the couch was dating a married person.

True that, he was a grown man and what he did was his own business, nobody else's. So leave him alone!!

Is the the same "couch" that you talked about on Hoptown Hall? Yep, Hoptown needs to get rid of the couch, the chair and the stupid desk. I'm wondering who the player is that got arrensted for drugs and got to play the next Friday. That really is more important than getting rid of a couch.
