go ahead and change your name you still live in romeotucky. Your still a hillbilly. Why don't you call yourself the Elite Hillbillies. Each kid can wear the nascar number # 3. The kids can get real tatoos.

We were a member of the Rattlers in the past and would be again. Each organization has issues. Someone isn't happy with this or that. I don't care where your from each of the team mentioned runs a respectable program and you get out of it what you put in it. From the words "Drama" "Soap Opera" you sound like you have experience. We do this for the kids, we pay for our kids, we make sacrafices so they can be better. I'm sorry but you miss the big picture - move along.
who cares too wrote:
Will county elite, Romeoveill Rattlers, Plainfield Diamondkings, Illinois Warriors... by the sounds of it these are all organizations everyone should stay away from. Too much drama people, watch a soap opera if you want all this drama. Look up teams, that no one is bashing on here would be my advice.

Just like any organization they can only support so many players and teams. They put talent on the field but will it trickle down to new teams and new kids. I doubt it. But since they are so high on themselves everyone go there and see what happens or better yet let LWP find out they can't do it all. Rude and Obnoxious is not part of character.

Well there are plenty out there. But Plainfiled DiamondKings is affliated with Plainfield Athletic Club. Their group that is going to be 12u has been solid and the group that is becoming 13u has had a nice overhaul. They play a competitive schedule and are usually decently financed. The team becoming 14u did have issues but that can be anywhere. Warriors just had a real solid 14u season and the Rattlers/Elite had a group that is becoming 12u that has been above .500 for 3 years.
All groups have issues: Oswego Cobras have fallen off, there is usally a terrible Oswego Panther team, Aurora Starzs can only advance in their own tournament by loading other pools, Naperville Renegades have had issues with managers, Victory dissolved a solid 12u team, etc...
Each organization has its issues it depends on what they do once they discover them or realize a need for change. So one changes a name, another creates a new group, at least they do try. And remember, the reason for travel is to protect the in-house programs so the in-house player can play a great game and have some success in doing it versus being overmatched and afraid to play.
13u Diamond Kings for next year had a nice overhaul? Are you stupid or what? Bob Mueller has no idea how to even play ball let alone coach a team. Talk about daddyball. He fought with every coach his sons have ever been on because they didn't bat or play where he wanted them to. He's a complete jagbag!!!!

rattlers, Elite, whatever! baseball travel teams in the Rome are all coached by 'dads' or whannabe coaches who don't take the time out to do their homework on mechanics, fundamentals and drills. they just want to live their livelihood dream of being a coach. at the expense of parents who work hard for their money, and want the best for their boys. bad.. real bad...

Reading all of this makes me glad that my son is playing where he is. It is tough to find a team you fit into. There's always some kind of drama on each team no matter what. With the coach, parents, kids, etc. Once I stopped coaching my son it took a couple of years to find the team, but we found it and it is a good feeling knowing he plays on a team where all the parents get along, and the kids all like eachother and have fun. We travel all the time which is also nice. I've been on the other side before and it can be very frustrating.
