How does everyone feel about the team next year. They are going to be one of the best we've seen I think. We've got pitching, defense, speed, and the bats are coming around! Can't wait until Spring!

Sorry Spartanman. I was talking about the youth spartan baseball. I ended up getting an answer to my question already anyway.

The 9U coaches have several years of coaching experience in PONY. I cannot give their names over this blog, but please feel free to contact me by visiting our website at http://teamzonesports.com/rsyb . If I don't hear from you, I hope to see you at tryouts this SUNDAY morning at the rec.

Thanks

Didn't the spartan 9u last year stink? Didn't they have a ton of taleted players?Didn't the rattler team,who's kids were not good enough to make the spartans,beat them three times?Hmmm.....sounds like bad coaching and a bad organization. I heard the rattlers are already starting practice for next year...in the batting cages.How are they going to pay for a whole year of cage time and in door practice...hmmm...oh yay maybe fundraising...duh

I think it is a great time for Romeoville baseball when we can start fielding two competitive travel baseball teams at all age levels. Lockport, Plainfield, and other surrounding towns have been doing this for years. It is great that parents are coming out and supporting the kids. It is a great step forward.

You know it is people like you that make the town look bad by getting on a board and hiding behind your email and bashing the people who volunteer there time to teach your kidís you are a coward. If it is so bad why donít you coach or join the Pony board oh wait let me guess you do not have the time. I for one would like to thank all the Rattler and Spartans coaches for all there time they give to the kids and to the Pony board for what they do. If it was not for all these people your child would not be playing baseball at all because if they had to count on you there parent to coach they would not be playing because you donít want to give up your time you would rather just bash everyone that does. GO Romeoville Spartans, Rattlers, and Pony Baseball keep up the good work!!!!!!!

I would like to first and foremost, agree with the comments by "4thekids". Secondly, I would like to speak for the Romeoville Spartans Baseball Club and say that I wish the best for ALL travel baseball programs in Romeoville and do NOT understand the animosity in some of these previous posts. I coached the 9U Spartans last year (the only Spartan team for 2009) and will be working hard to get 8U and 9U programs started this year. The Romeoville Rattlers have done a fantastice job in bringing travel baseball to Romeoville, and I can only hope to have the same success with our Spartan clubs. With that said, we have tryouts tomorrow morning at the rec, from 10AM-1PM for 8U, 9U, and 10U teams. Hope to see you there.

Baesball parents are so hard to please, they want the kids to be on a team but then they want it to be a good team, but they don't want to Coach or help. they just want to point out all the Coaches mistakes, than why don't you do it. Coach a team yourself and see all the time it takes a way from your life and the commitment to the team and treating every kid equally , so no one complains, is almost impossible , parents always complain, but don't help at all. Baseball is to promote sportmanship for your child to grow up knowing how to handle the good and the Bad!! because in life there will always be good and bad times, it's how you choose to handle it that makes you a better person.

With the Rattlers being an established Travel team, and trying to get better. And the Spartans trying to get their teams off the ground, It is senseless to "Bash" each other. Competition breeds better players. It is good for the Players, The Coaches, and Parents. After all it is a kids game for goodness sakes. As for the people who post here and feel they have to "Bash", get over it, let me be the 1st person to apolgize to u for not making a "LITTLE LEAGUE" team when u were young, or being the last player chosen in a pickup game, get a life. Oh, yeah the last time time I checked MLB has 2 teams in Chicago. My point being, there is plenty of room for 2 Travel Leagues.

I would like to say that I think that last post was absolutely horrible! To say that a team stinks is pretty brutal. They were a first year team and there were some very talented boys on that team. None of them have ever played travel ball before. They played/practiced hard for many months. The coaches gave up a lot of their own time and the kids respected them! The boys won some games while they lost games, but as the season went on, they continued to grow and learn how to play hard. That is what it is about. They will continue to get better and will continue to win games. If an adult can come onto a publie board and say that 8 year old boys stink, you should really think about getting a life! Win or lose, they played hard, respected their coaches and most important HAD FUN! My son did all of that and still wants to play, that tells me someone did something right! You should be ashamed of yourself! Winning should be very important if you get paid for it, but if it is for fun and learning, this is where it is at!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Spartan coaches and great job kids! Mama is proud of you all.

My sons have played for coaches on both the Spartans and Rattlers and I have to agree with the last post and say that I think all the "bashing" is counterproductive. Let's all make the town we live in proud---make our kids proud---and show them how to respect eachother while being competitive. This year's 9U Spartans coaches, which I have had first hand experience with, are great coaches---the kids on that team are GREAT,TALENTED kids. My boys played PONY and Rattlers this year and ALL members we delt with from the Commisioner ---who deserves to be thanked for giving up so much time and energy to the kids of our town, instead of being talked about in such a negative light on this board---to the coaches we played for this year were great. My boys finished the season making new friends, learing more about the game and HAVING FUN!!! We are trying to raise our kids to be good people and to be winners...a winner is RESPECTIFUL. I am a VERY competitive person, and I agree with the previous comments that having more than 1 travel ball program in Romeoville is a GOOD thing. Being competitive, sometimes we get carried away in nonsense trying to "recruite" kids from one team to another, trying to point out negative things about coasches, etc...at the end of the day the kids having fun,learning how to be a member of team and learning about the game is why we do it...yes when we spend so much time and money on travel ball we also want to WIN. We, as adults of the community and parents, need to embrace the growth of the travel ball clubs in Romeoville as a postive.

Let's use this board as a means to share information about all the teams and the choices we can make for our kids, encourage eachother, and get involved with our community, instead of bash YOUTH baseball clubs and the AMAZING people behind each organization.

At the end of the day...Pony, Rattlers and Spartans Youth baseball are programs offered to our community because of the exhausting effort, time and dedication to our kids by people being bashed on here....so instead of bashing, I want to say THANK YOU!!!!

There are so many bigger problems in the world--AMEN "ballcoach"... "God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy!"

Tryouts for the Spartans and Rattlers both happened within the last week and a half for the 2010 season.

Travel baseball is a big commitment for the players, coaches and parents. Practice and fundraising begins in December for most teams. It is very competative and I believe both the 8u and 9u Rattlers and 9u Spartans got a reality check of what travel baseball is all about. It is hard. These kids put their heart and soul into playing and they should be very proud of themselves of what they have accomplished. Win or lose. The friendships and bonds the kids and parents have made is something that is truely a good feeling.

The I-80 league is one of the best leagues to play with. They have alot of great teams that have some great accomplishments. Please check out their website to see. Both the Rattlers and Spartans both played in this league last year.

I wish people that feel the need to bash travel baseball would take time to learn what it is about and what it is involved. We have alot of competition with surrounding towns and all of this bad talk is just making Romeoville look bad. I wish you would just support the coaches and players and see that we are only here to help kids in our community.

AMEN. Well said Travel Baseball Parent. You know what they say, "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."
