I am very thankful to all concerned who are trying to bring another Babe Ruth tournament to Lamar. I attended several games last time and greatly enjoyed the games, and kids and their families-the fireworks at the end were the best ever in Lamar! Lamar benefitted greatly from the many thousands of dollars that the visiting families brought with them and spent in the town. It also gained Lamar a better reputation in the area and state.

I get really upset over the small group of small minded people whose gift in life seems to be complaining about such activities and the funding thereof. They seem to do little to nothing to benefit the community with any ideas or events for growth, increasing visitors and business to Lamar. So if you do not like the tournament, and all the people and money that it brings to Lamar, then I humbly suggest that you work as hard as the tournament team to bring some exciting business to this great town before you complain again.

Way to go Ian! The committee members, field workers, concession workers, volunteers etc. etc. etc. do it for the love of the game and the community...they don't get paid for their extra hard work away from their regular jobs! And of course when the first World Series happened the only ones to complain were local people! Ridiculous!

Skip, Cathy B., and all the others...way to go! Please excuse some rude, inconsiderate locals who have nothing better to do than complain when they are not in the news or making a profit!
