Finally the Little League Organization has set forth some rules that anyone on probation, with a felony or criminal record CANNOT be a coach or an assistant coach of any of the teams...these people cannot even step foot on the field with the team.

It is about time Little League officials have come to thier senses and held parents and coaches to a higher standard in the community.

not always. somebody driving without a license could be hit with a felony. possibly you have, or a family member. does that mean they cant see their kid play ball? a dwi will do it. how about a tax problem? get in a fight, even if you are defending yourself it can be a felony. what about people that have totally turned around like sal inserra? now a respectable business man? lets not forget about all our local politicians that should be hit with felonies, just because nobody will bring them to justice does not mean they are any less a criminal? good thought but too broad a rule. def should be crimes against women and children.

I agree! It has been proven that statistically, most criminals keep committing crimes even after they have served their sentences.

This is just one more step being taken to protect our young children better than we have been.

You can still go and see your child play..you just can't coach or assist...and this is as it should be!

Same rules apply to anyone else who deals with children...(teachers, childcare workers, custodians in schools, counselors etc..)you have to be fingerprinted and registered with the state.

So if you have a current criminal record---YOU'RE OUT!:)

Hmmmmmm .... with such compassion and understanding your display, we can only hope that soon you find yourself in a situation out of your control that lands you in the justice system. With all the laws they are passing, its quite possible.

You might want to climb down from your high horse before you fall.

(this does not mean I have a criminal record as I'm sure is your knee jerk reaction)

Not likely my friend...believe it or not, there are loads of people in this world without a criminal record...maybe not in your world but in mine.

And, as for your reference to my knee jerk reaction, you are wrong. I imediately assumed you were defending your spouse...or some other family member. Who I am sure was wrongfully accused by some corrupt judge and beaten and battered by some big bad police officer. And, I am sure they are completly innocent...but still, they won't be coaching little league.

That was my point and no, I am not sympathetic.

But I was correct about your knee jerk reaction. While you deny I was the target, which I believe is a lie, you try to avoid the accusation and still knee jerk assume that someone in my family is a criminal. That is the problem.

There are too many ignorant people who assume something from what they read, when there is absolutely nothing in the writing that supports their ignorant assumption. You're in a lot of company.

Reading comprehension is so important .... and so lacking.

No assumptions Observer. Your irrevelent comments speak for themselves.

My only point of this blog was to inform people of the new rules...I didn't make them... just support them. If you disagree then take it up the the Little League Commisioner.

And as for reading comprehension, you really have NO idea who you are speaking to. I inferred from your ridiculous comment that you were defending a criminal...call me crazy, but no one would do such thing unless they have first hand experiences with such...

Either way, I really don't care...this was not to point the finger at any one individual - although I could easily name a handful of people that are affected by this rule...it was simply to give cudos to the Little League Organization for finally living up to higher standards.

Liar. You assumed someone close to me is a criminal, simply because I voiced an opinion opposite of yours.

You had to invent an imaginary motive for my words, and then use that imaginary motive to form your response. Your response was to say I must have a family member or spouse who is a criminal.

You are a liar. You are ignorant because you can't take words for what they mean. You must assign a negative prejudice of your own to them.

Character assassination - the tool of the ignorant.

Yikes...seems like someone is a bit testy. Take a pill and relax...:)

I will avoid name calling as you did and simply restate my case.

Criminals are NOT allowed to coach Little League. Period.

Have a wonderful day.

Doesn't seem to me that anyone was lying on this post at all. Tend to think that you have a sore spot regarding criminals whom are not allowed to coach. Personally, I couldn't agree more with the new reg's. It's about time we held our parents and community members to higher standards. Our kids need better role models.

Because of this rule does this mean that East Utica won't have enough guys available to coach?
