Excellent use of Sarcasm... NICE!!!!!! Wait until everyone finds out how a coach took his only hand picked kids to the cal Ripken camp in MAryland all expenses paid... LOL.. Not one of them was a Black kid from the hood.. all were White kids from White Oak and Haler Heights....

My kid is a member of the Boys club and plays baseball, but not for MYBO, but for MBA. He was never invited to attend this. He is not White, and I was just told by a worker at the boys club this camp cost $2000 per kid, and The Coach in charge did not fill all of the spots that The BOYS CLUB was given funding for. So , in order to not take any kids of color, they chose to waste several $2000 scholarships to this camp. This opportunity was kept under wraps by the 2 of them so they could hand pick.I was also told one kid that went even had a sibling turn it down that was offered a chance to go so he could go to play football in White Oak!!! talk about scandal!!!!

That is unimaginable!!! Jimbo not interested in taking a select group of HIS players to an out of state camp? Imagine why he would not want that... maybe because they would have behaved like thugs and hood rat gangstas? Good for JB And Coach Bill!!! I would not have taken any of them either if I was able to go. Unfortunately, I do not work for the City or MASD to get the time off of work with pay.

That is funny.. now the 2 of them openly snubbed the boys club kids who could really have benefitted from a trip like this, I bet they are trumpeted by all as to how much they do for the kids of the port!! LOL!! What hypocrits.!!! how big of a slap in the face to all of you that they wasted at least 5 scholarships because they do not consider your kids wsorthy recipients. You all made your bed with these 2, now lie in them!!!!

It is about to be announced that MYBo will no longer be supporting a Girls Softball program. You rbeloved JB has walked away to concentrate on Competing with MBA to bury their baseball program. He is very vindictive towards JD and his coaches baz and BM are all for this. They both have no use for the girls and do not hide that fact.

Not surprised by this. We were told at teh end of the season JB would not be running a girls softball program next season at MYBO. There will be someone else taking it over under the Boys Club Umbrella.. but will have a different name and be better organized.

You know as much as I enjoy reading rumors and snips at other people, I am a proud parent of two Mckeesport children and MBA players. I am extremely sadden to hear the beating that our organization is taking. I have coached and played in this city, and for MBA. I still have yet for any of my parents to fight My coaches and I police our parents and would not allow for this to happen. I would be the first to kick a parent off my field when I am coaching if they create a problem, I will remove them myself if I have too. The attitudes of parents from all cities aren't perfect and I heard comments, but like my players parents we try to police them also. I understand McKeesport gets a bad reputation because of some people but to bash everyone is sickening. The parents on here how much time do you put in on the field? How much time do you spend with the whole team, like the old saying until you walk a mile in a mans shoes! I don't know much of MYBO and I am not going to comment on them but until you take over my team and do what all these other coaches do back off! Their is no reason to bash someone who is willing to volunteer their time and effort to better the children they are given. Would you bash a Meals on Wheels volunteer, someone from the United Way or from the Food Bank? No, so leave coaches and organizers of at least MBA alone because thinking of all the coaches and J.D. we are here for the children and bettering these children.

I know who you are... and your parents are some of the rudest I have ever seen. You do not hear the way they talk or act in the bleachers from the field. MYBO parents are just as bad when it comes to the port peeps. The ones who actually attend first, but give them that much credit.. so many just expect us coaches to drive their kids around to and from games, like they are doing us a favor by letting their kid participate. The port parents are abusive towards other teams, home and away... infact... it has gotten to the point that the other teams were setting off sirens at away games when the port parents showed up at the fields... during the playoffs.. they were making fun of them setting off sirens and laughing about the port parents scattering and assuming the position along the outfield fence..It was hilarious! The Port gets exactly what it deserves. MYBO should just merge with WOAA, because the White Oak kids who are not at the WOAA are the ones running MYBO. There is very little port in the MYBO... most of the port kids play MBA...it is cheaper.

That was a horribly written self - depricating piece that Barry should be embarassed for orchestrating. This just proves everyone's [point about this guy.. it has NOTHING to do with the kids.. and EVERYTHING to do with HIMSELF!! I almost puked when I saw it in the paper.

Jim Barry is a credit to the club and the city. He has flaws, as we all do, but his commitment to the kids is unquestionable. There are way too many haters on here with personal vendettas.

The way he and his coaches conducted themselves on the field vs TJ last season was embarassing.
