In the same boat here. Just do what the other 15 families did and leave and never look back.

95% of the teams out there don't have fundraisers. If they do they're under $300 and it's to try and keep family costs down. The majority offer them to do if you're willing and 100% of that goes torwards your costs or in a pot for player/family travel expenses...hotels, etc. These other teams also give 100% sponsorship money you bring in to your bill, not 75% to your bill and 25% in steves pocket.
Call and shop around, teams in the area have very comparable training and facility use, offer superior coaching staff and all come in under $1200 per player out the door when said and done.

Tell your husband to quit drinking the kool-aid and run before you give that crook another penny of your hard earned money.

Well I just went through 20 pages of google search results and nothing comes up about any domestic or legal issues. So I'm assuming this is all hearsay or you're too lazy to post the sites you seem to know about it

This is only one of many. Google does not list them all. Cops beat a path down to his house for more than one domestic issue. Trust me!

The front page of narcissist.com aka lwprospects.com "Our program has one of the highest retention rates in travel baseball. Already, we have 11U players entering their 3rd year with us. For example, Anthony Lullo" I think he is now a Rebel... Doh!

According to winesses, Steve said "if anyone is ripping people off, its me!"

http://pastimeprospects.com/
"The organizations are not affiliated and are different. Thank you for your time, we hope this link helped answer some questions."

How much you want to bet that the LW Prospects will be another Pasttime Prospects when Steve gets busted and starts playing under the Gladiators?

Mayor..? I heard the Yankees wanted him but there was a hiccup in negotiations...apparently they didn't offer enough in fuel and hotel reimbursement so he decided to keep shaking down families from the Midwest.

I love it!!! He was probably upset because they wouldn't take an expired coupon when he was trying to purchase the Ripken Instructional DVD Series.

In all this talk of "Coach" Korbel, I wonder why I don't see many people talking about his obvious lack of baseball knowledge. Everyone knows he is a thief but he seems to have convinced everyone that he at least has some knowledge of baseball. I find that humorous. The guy takes every gimmick that he's ever seen in a DVD and tries to instill it in his players. How about the "Prospect Hands" on his baserunners? You gotta love when we insist on having our kids have one hand right in front of their face and the other behind their back. How does that make you faster??? If it does make you faster, why have I never seen a major league player doing it??? More to come
