First off, finally one other intelligent person on here with a passion for our kids. I applaud that. However, let me give you a short lesson on taxation. 1/2 of your local taxes get sent to the school district. That is a flat percentage of what you make. Now, I make more, so I pay more. The percentage may be the same, but I am contributing more $$$$. Next... our school tax is based on property values. Now, since you live in the Port, and I do not, my property is worth more, so again, I pay more. Doing the hypothetical, I not only pay for my kid, but yours and your kid's best friend. If you do have a job..and actually pay your taxes, Again I owe you an apology. Since 10% of the Porters pay fopr the other 90%... I again applaud you for being part of the solution. Problem with the port is there just are not enough of you.
Next... yes... I am better than the majority of the people who live in the port. There may be a few I would consider equals, and judging by your response, you may very well fall into that category if you are telling the truth. JB is certainly not one of them. While JB is one of them .... there is your riddle for the day. oh... and you left Versailles out of your geography lesson... JF would be very disappointed.

This will be my last comment to you. You are a smug SOB and aren't worth the time it takes to type this. I don't need a lesson on taxation as I am fully aware of how things work. You claim your property is worth more than mine, but you have no idea what part of McKeesport I live in and therefore have no idea what my property is worth. You forget that many houses in parts McKeesport are worth more than houses in White Oak so you know nothing. I will reiterate my previous statement that you are part of the problem here and have no actual idea about anything. You come on here, claim to be better than others as though what you make actually matters, my guess is you have a mortgage you can't afford, you have too much credit card debt, and you have cars payments that you can't afford, but these material things make you better than others in your mind. You are unhappy with your life and are trying to put people down that actually give a damn about others. You have certainly put me and the rest of McKeesport in our place. Thank you proving my point that you are what makes "The Port" a great place to live because I'd rather live here than anywhere near the likes of you. Good luck with your pathetic life, because if you need to flaunt what you don't have on a website through an alias that tells me that you don't have much of anything.

And by the way, as far as forgetting Versailles, I didn't forget Versailles, Versailles has a McKeesport zip code and therefore is part of Mckeesport. So if you think you are better because you live there, you are pathetic.

Not to but in... but I pay my taxes to Versailles... not the Port... Versailles has it's own Mayor... apart from the MDC... it's opwn Police, shopping center..etc... It is a better place than the port. If you decide to judge by zipcode... then Parts of Eliz TWP are the Port... go ask those people where they live... oh wait.. what school do they go to... oh wait... by zip code... part of Eliz TWP is a west NEwton Zip Code... maybe they pay taxes to westmoreland county... NOT... wow... If I were "Real Parent" I would have just put you in your place. Zip code has nothing to do with the Port. That is a Federal Postal designation... and all of the above areas have petetioned the USPS to change the designation to the towns they actually serve. OH.. and my house in Versailles is worth more than any in the port. Look me up on the county web site. And look at my taxes... they go to Versailles and to MASD... not a dime 1 goes to the Port!! We are better.. that is why we do not live there. Versailles, Dravosburg, Port Vue, Liberty, White Oak, and Even Glassport will unite!!!

Because it would take a set of balls to do that, and this person would actually have to know what they were talking about instead of cowering behind an alias. I have coached for Mybo in the past an can say that Jimbo does a fantastic job for all the kids in our community! It is never about him, but it is most definitely about the kids. This loud mouth do nothing that continues to find fault with a guy who (with the help of many other good people in our community) has given opportunities to kids that they would otherwise never get. It is people like Jimbo, Jason, Pete, and Joe that while they may differ on how to do things are truly in it for the kids. Like I said, I have coached at MYBO in the past, as well as in other places and the only thing I have ever heard JB say about the other organizations is that we are not better than any of them, we just offer something different. As a matter of fact, I saw him bitch a coach out for putting down one of the other organizations because he truly understands that while others may do things differently, they are doing something positive for the kids.

I think you are missing the point here. I don't think this person was trying to put down Versailles, I believe all they were saying was that no one should act like they are better than others just because of where they live. People that live in McKeesport and try to make it a better place are a proud group of people. They are trying to make things better and all you people do is put them down. So rise up and unite all you want, you will still never have the heart that people like JB and others that are leaders in the community have.

My son was at the event, and he had a blast. Big thanks to everyone involved for making this happen in our area. I do not live in the Port... and NEVER will.... let's get that straight. Renzie PArk is a great asset to our entire area, and should not be labeled as in McKeesport. The county should take over it's operation so more people would attend events there. BAck to the issue.. this Barry person strutted around like he was king sh*t, and was too self important. He can take a lesson from Andrew McCutcheon, a candidate for MVP and MLB All Star. HE was not too good for the kids. It was great to see LBAA and PVAA, and the bunch from MT Vernon and White Oak there as well. This shows how Renzie park can be so much more than the Port. It is an asset that is just not utilized proper;y. BArry is a member of the local area Ripken Baseball, because Little League Baseball of America wants nothing to do with his MYBO teams. HE had no where else to turn. They have a great relationship with the Boys and Girls CLub of America, so he has an automatic asociation opportunity because the Boys CLub Allows him to piggy back on them because they did not have their own Baseball programs. MBA, WO, MT Vernon, LBAA, and even Port Vue are all more respected than the MYBO people. This was a great event, but it was NOT a MYBO event... everyone should be given equal credit and huge thanks to MLBPA and the Pittsburgh Pirates for driving interest in Baseball. oh.. and I am not the same person as the other PEOPLE on here exposing this guy as a publicity hungry arrogant ..well... you get the point.
Why don't you tell that "Barry Person" to his face you jackass. It's easy to predict what kind of adult your kid will grow up to be with a "Real Parent" like you.

You are totally full of crap. JB does everything with the kids in mind, often putting his own life and family on hold for the kids in our community. I have even seen him coach teams that he doesn't have a kid on just so those kids can play and participate. It is people like him that try to make McKeesport a better place for all,that are the true heroes and role models for our kids. I also consider Jimbo a friend, but more importantly he considers me one of his.

You keep convincing yourself of that. He ALWAYS has a reason. He is the most underhanded coniving person I have ever had the pleasure of associating with.. well.. not quite.. there is 1 worse now that I think about it... and he is another who always trumpets to the world how much he is giving to the community. He is sure to tell anyone who will listen.. and he is from the Port too. Must be a trait they get from their Little Pittbull days. They even share the same first name... but not the same initials.

If you have such a problem with MYBO then why are you still playing there? I bet I know why, it is because the other organizations actually expect you to work in their organizations with fundraising and other things like that. In MYBO you get to be the lazy POS that you are because they don't force you to fund raise or do anything like that. The fact remains that you bash a fantastic organization because you don't like the guy that runs it. It doesn't matter that there are lots of other people that are doing things along side JB to make that organization function. I think you were probably chased out of MBA, McKeesport Little League, MALTAA, and MGSL so MYBO is currently the only place you can play because either they have not figured out how horrible you really are yet or they have and everyone just chooses not to associate with you because you aren't worth it. My opinion is, anyone who bashes an organization because of one person has issues and really needs to get a real life because without MYBO, MBA, Little League, MALTAA, and MGSL the kids of McKeesport would be the ones that lose.

To all the coaches and people who make Mybo the great organization that it is, please keep up the great work. This one person who keeps changing his title and bashing the organization is obviously someone who has personal problems and likes to talk to themselves behind hidden identities. This was our first year with MYBO and we along with our kids were completely satified with the organization.The clinic the other day held by Ripken and the Pirates was a great success and something our kids will cherish forever. To coach Jimbo and all others who dedicate their time to all of the kids, thanks on behalf of very happy parent!

After reading about the event held in renzie park the other day, I have talked to some people who know this Barry guy and all commend him and his entire organization for their tireless efforts with the kids in our community!

Well.. Now I will join in on this topic too. LEt me spell this out for you.. Why does a town like the Port need so many different organizations that do exactly the same thing. MYBO... started up because Barry and DOnato HAte each other.... MALTAA and FLIP started because MGSL had huge money issues with funds missing and KH hated SK. SK ran him out of the organization. MYBO wanted Fast Pitch.. but MALTAA does it too... why? That does not even take into account Mck Little League. No reason for MYBO and Mck Little league to both exist... other than the fact that the PARENTS do not get along!!! Let me lay this out for you.. It s not the KIDS!!!! It is ALWAYS the Parents!!! It is the McKeesport Parents that start all the trouble at away games. It is McKEesport Parents that fight with each other at games... it is McKeesport Parents that cause other organizations to not want to play the Littel PittBulls or MYBO. It is The MGSL Parents that got kicked out of Plum Boro and PT. It is the Parents that threaten other teams and intimidate their kids.... common denominator is the PArents need to change their behavior. Period. Remember.. this is all supposed to be about the kids. Oh.. don't forget... the coaches as well. It is McKeesport PArent/Coaches that do not know how to handle a game situation and not keep their attitudes in check. Bottom line.. issues always come back to McKeesport Parents.

This has to be the best post ever on here. Nothing explains the plight of the Port and MYBO better. Their coaches are rude and beligerant towards even their own organization if it is not their team. Their Parents are rude towards other teams. The other McKeesport teams have Parents who are just reprehensable. They have no class. It was very clear at a recent White Oak vs. MBA-McKeesport Baseball game who was from the port. The Port peeps were very poor sports. Their kids on the otherhand, and coaches, were very gracious in their loss. It is always the Port Parents that cause the issues. Set a better example for your kids so they do not grow up like the rest of you!! Organizations like PVAA, LBAA, WOAA, BVA, ETAA, MTVAA ... do not have these same reputations... and the respect they all garner has been well earned.

This is right on. McKeesport Parents are a disgrace. Especially the MYBO and MBA people. There were 2 fights this season I saw where the police were called to the field. Both times it was against a McKeesport team. We could not believe it! their conduct was disgraceful. We were embarassed for their kids.

We are going over to Mybo for next baseball season for my 2 boys. My Oldest is 11 and my youngest 9. I can honestly say that I have heard a lot of good things about mybo and was told to attend the clinic at the field in McKeesport hosted by Ripken, the Pirates and Mybo by a friend who coaches over there. We were on vacation and had to miss it but from what I heard it was a great day for the kids with many Pirates in attendance. We currently play for WO, But were not real pleased with the season this year.

This is seriously a joke. Noone has EVER gone to MYBLOW from WOAA. It happens the other way all the time. MBA to MYBO.. yes, we would have bought that. BUt NEVER WOAA. Way better facilities and way better coaching...and much safer... better parents... etc... etc. etc..
