American Legion got suspensions correct
NY State Legion

#61 Dec 2, 2013
The NY state legion leadership is a complete mess. 80 year olds governing everything and making rules as they go along. Teams are dropping every year and the total count for the state is less than 100 now when before it was over 200. Syracuse has no legion ball as it is AAU or Base Ruth there. Albany has only 5 teams in an are with 1 million population.Downstate teams have dropped in large numbers and are less than 10. In New Jersey leagues have disappeared because players are now involved in AAU leagues. Time for changes it would seem or in 10 years or less this does not exist any longer. American Legion has no scouts or following in this area.
As for the penalties if they got rid of the troublemakers then why penalize the remainder of the team ? Makes no sense to me.

play travel!!! It is the best way to go. you will play more games especially if your a 13 yr old playing with 15 yr old kids. It also is the same clique in legion that stems from minor and little league and all the kids are trouble makers, punks with drunken belligerant parents. LEGION BALL SUCKS BALLS!!!! Been through the cycle twice, not worth it, especially in whitesboro.

Bad people do bad things. The Boro parents on left field line have a terrible reputation of making asses of themselves in public. Everybody knows they mouth off to opposing teams players and coaches in every game when their losing. People who were not even at the game knew it was them. Lol I truly believe they take pride in it.
This is SO TRUE not one of them was an athlete and their kids can't play either but they try yo act like tough guys with big mouths when their all together and have people outnumbered . Witnessed first hand from North Utica.

They started a huge fight all their fault get over it and deal with it. They r not perfect and maybe it wouldn't have happened if they didn't think their shit don't smell but they grew up thinking they were the best and whitestown was the best.

Obvious? I don't know the umpire from a hill of beans. But, if the umpire put a stop to the trash talk by both teams it would not have escalated. If you knew anything about sports, you would know that the umpire lost control of the game and he deserves suspension every bit as much as the kids who will sit out. Now, don't make a fool of yourself.
You can say all you want about the umps but it's the coaches resonsibility to control his players. Yes, the umps must take some responsibility as well but coaches must control their players. Paul did not do his job!
