First we are Owensboro Eastern Cal Ripken, second the majority of the board members don't even have kids playing in the majors where most people think about playing time. Third either be helpfull or be quite. If your not part of the solution you are part of the problem. And yes this is my real name if u want to talk I'm at Easterns fields every day from 4-10. Thank you for your support.

What happened was, they were having refresher courses on spelling and punctuation. You obviously missed it.

Let me ask u this Jeff y does the majors have a score board that works minor and rookie does not. Why does the majors get chalk on the baseline grass mowed and umpires while the minors and rookie do not. I was there tonight and half the grass was cut at the minor field but the major all manicured. Who takes care of that i think its u. All the kids pay the same so why aren't they all treated the same.

Jeff I think that might be the problem u r more worried bout what people call the league than how the league is run. Maybe u need to b part of the solution or find some people who will

To: "Jus askin", it takes a lot of folks to run a ballpark, they also do this for free. I don't know this Jeff guy, but, I am sure he would be more than willing to let you put some chalk in the bag and mark the field. Heck, I bet he would even let you mow the grass if you felt compelled. Maybe be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. The playground presidents put an enormous amount of volunteer time in for little or no thanks, nor do they expect it. So, if you don't like how it's being run, I suggest you run for the position or roll those sleeves up and help.

They had positions open last year. It was announced and it was posted on a big red posted board to sign your name to for any position. If you want to run, sign your name on the board list.

Each kid paid 25 dollars to play. The teams received crapy equipment I know we had to buy our own catchers gear cause wat we got was held together with tape no joke. We bought our own jerseys and hats. So where is the money. The kids don't even get drinks after the games any more. Gone way down.

How about you come to the concession stand or to the fields on Tuesday night and Michael, Amy, Jeff, Jim, John, or Mike can give you a breakdown of where the money goes. How they elect officers, how the fields are run, who shows up to help cook and prepare the fields and who does what. Better yet how about you come on down and volunteer your time to help do some of this stuff. The board is very few and if anyone is interested in running for a position they are more than welcome. Please remember there are balls to pay for, umps for games that get paid, concession supplies, chalk, insurance, equipment, and much more. I believe there were several teams who decided they wanted their own gear, so they bought it themselves. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to come speak with a member of the board any time from 4-10 Monday through Friday!!!!! I know the board works their ass off for the league and it is run well considering there are only a few of them. My kids have been there for a few years and its people like you all who want to sit around and bitch and complain that make the league go down hill. I say how about let's appreciate them for keeping the league around and for all their hard work instead of bashing them.

Jeff told you where to find him if you wanted to talk to him about a problem. The problem with Topix is it allows people to talk trash anonymously - which takes no courage or responsibility.

Evertt is the president but jon west makes all the decisions around there. Hell I'm there more than mr. west and i just go to watch my nephew play. plus they don't want help in the concession stand then the parents will know how much they make a night. I'm glad my kids don't play there. they cancel games for a sprinkle so they won't have show up and do anything.
