Let your little boys grow up. You cant protect them from everything forever. The first time something doesnt go right for them they wont know how to act. Will they know how to handle adversity?

Yes it is that time of year. Parents in small groups talking about kids and coaches. More teams are beginning to form as team will break up and there will be two teams instead of 1. One thing for sure everyone one will find a team when its said and done.I have already heard about 3 12u teams that are breaking up and that means 3 new teams next year at 13u. Travel Baseball like it or not its not going away.

1400-2000. You fund raise a large amount of it... I don't think we have ever gone out of pocket (personally)

Its when you slide your money into the Prospect mobile and get nothing back.

Thanks for the laugh. RESPECT and PROSPECT are similar enough words; maybe that jag bag can go play for them.

I hear Rebel coaches are e-mailing Prospect parents trying to get them to come to their team lol Isn't that the kind of stuff Rebel teams accuse other teams of doing. Guess they can't get enough players from their own in house program so they are going after kids from other teams. Nice

rumor is.. a large majority of the prospects team are leaving for the 2012 season. So much for player retention

I am sure if you checked back last year you will probably find the same post with the same rumors. Other local teams keep their fingers crossed and hope every year the teams will break up since they can't beat them

Prospect kids are Rebel kids and were smoozed by Mr. Politician into coming to the Prospects - sorry that now they are wanting to come back. Nobody had to email them - they have been the ones making the calls. Why you so upset? With this great winning record - people still want to leave.

rumor also has it... that the reasoning behind adding a second team for the 2012 season was because King Korbel caught word of the mass exiting. And to cover his behind advertised the second team for that age group hoping to find enough talent to fill the void of talent rumored to be leaving.

Rebels have beat them. Prospects should win. They can recruit as far away as Indiana and Rebels have to mainly stay in the community. It is a huge advantage to the Proapects. It really isn't going to matter - all the trophies in the world doesn't cover that a Major/Elite team brags about beating AA teams...oh and when the parents look back and add up all the money that was stolen from them...

ok MR Baseball, I guess the Tornados, Sparks, Quad City Hitmen, the teams beaten at the Michigan Major elite and the entire KII Elite division that were beaten were all AA teams. Nice try with a tired argument. 11u team is second in the state right behind tornados in USSSA power rating for MAJOR teams which uses a formula of record of teams beaten , record of teams lost to etc.. and the 11u team ranks 13th in the nation in the Major Division. Must be a soft schedule right. lol Where are the Rebels and rest of local teams, better look way, way down the list even in triple AAA but once again we play the soft schedule. Nice try. Keep up the tired old arguments and we will keep winning.
