Why do so many people care so much about Black ice anyway?

I think that Black Ice recruited "better" girls off other teams in order to be the best team in this area. Right now this is J'boro and NEA teams, team to beat. Maybe one of our teams will be able to by the end of the season. A lot of the other teams have improved by a great deal. In our league schedule we are back up towards the top, playing teams that were in our original upper division. I bet the games the Black Ice is expecting from other J'boro teams will not be as big of wins as in the past. I really doubt they have as many runs the rest of the season- or win by as many points as they did during the beginning of the season.
In my opinion that it wasn't just the nicest/good sportsmanship thing to recruit over 1/2 the girls from the team that one of the coach’s daughters came from-- again my opinion. May I add that team- having to get all new girls (with just a few exceptions) is doing great this season!!!

We have a 10U on JSA but have friends that play for black ice....very well put together team that works hard to be great. Your right a few of them played together last year, a couple are sisters and another couple are family, and others just friends. Very impressive team, players, coaches and parents. The coach that made the comment about throwing the ball just got frusturated that the coach at the pitching machine wanted to stand tall and block the throws from 3rd to 1st and vice versa. Guess I needed to add some comments since all we do in 10U is steal bases and walk, we get excited when we hear the excitemnet on the 8U fields.

Point 1. The coach making the comment could not possibly know the pitching coach's intentions. Both coaches played against each other last year also. The commenting coach knows full well that the Flame Thrower's coach has always fed the pitching machine that way.

Point 2. Unless a pitching coach takes two full steps backward, they do not block or obstruct the view from 1st to 3rd.

Point 3. Arkansas ASA rules state: "After a batter hits the ball, this coach [the pitching coach] shall remain motionless behind the pitching machine or move quietly away from the playing action into foul territory away from the play." Remaining motionless precludes immediately crouching down behind the machine and pivoting one's head to follow the action.

The Flame Throwers coach was inadvertently and unknowingly blocking a throw from 2nd to home. Such happens. I've seen a crouching coach be unable to get out of the way of three players attempting to get to a loose ball near the machine. With an adult in the field these things are going to occur.

Frustration is NOT a viable reason for telling a 7 or 8 year old player to intentionally inflict injury on an opposing coach who was abiding by the rules.

Seems that way sometimes don't it? But you know, most of the 10u girls are only first or second year pitchers, so I don't expect too much. It's still nice to see someone get a hold of the ball and slug it.

Well it's quite obvious that one or more of the players on Black Ice is from a team that possibly you have coached or helped coach before and they left your team to be on black ice's team and it has left a bad taste in your mouth but you no what it is softball and half the teams out there will either be split next year or have recruited different players to be better.. It goes on ALL through sports and that's just what it is. As for black ice they are a decent team ( not the best ) but decent and they will be the day that they will be beat at home and I'm sure they no that cause it will happen but I will say if you can get past your hatred for that team you will see that our team has really enjoyed playing them because most teams that are pretty good let it go to there heads and are just rude.. As for the coaches they always say if the coaches are mean to the players it reflects in the players performance.. and to my standards the players are pretty good.... As for our team we personally as parents respect them for going out of town to play to give the rest of the competition a chance to win and boost our players morall.. As for you my daughter plays for your DDS 8u team and you are no angel we've heard you holler at the officials the girls and even us parents heck you've been on topics mouthing parents on here all the way back to April 1st when you called that person an a** but next year you will have to go to a different team and league is almost over so yippee.. But for now stop worrying about what there doing and just help make the season the best it can from now on..
