its crazy....what your paying for is the umps that do minor league and little league....if you say any thing they will tell you that your kid will reap the bennefits when he/she gets to that level.

OMG. It's nothing short of r-a-p-e! It's for LITTLE kids. What happened to the fun? Some parents who got laid off CANNOT afford this.

The price has been 95 bucks. This year it didnt go up and you have a way of earning some of it back by selling candles. Hopefully after this year there will be enough money so the price can be lowered next year!! Give the new board a chance to fix the problems from past years

Glad I waited to comment until after I heard "new board". Otherwise I would have suggested running as far as you could from South Utica LL.

The reason is because the husband and wife team the ran the league last year stole a sigificant amount of money from the league

North Utica you only have to pay $25.00 for T-Ball,minor league and little league and sell a box of candy.Also,each kids parent has to work one game at the concession stand. Not bad at all compared to the rest of the area. The problem with Little League is that you can't leave your district to go to another league so someone who lives in South Utica can't play in North Utica or vice versa. So parents and kids are held hostage by there local little league.

I belive that you can leave your district.there is a form that you have to sign from the district you dont want to play in and be sure they have "room" for your childs level on the other district. You have to explain the reason why and if its a good enuf one, you can "move" your child....Its all about the kids and the prices they charge are crazy....My kids played for MD and have nothing but good things to say....we too had to volunteer one game per child in concession........good luck and think spring!

Who was the big fat loudmouth coach of all-stars? Whoever that guy was didnít represent South Utica well,(what a tool). Poor kids looked deflated before they even started. If thats what you get for your $95 I'd go elsewhere

is coach schaff and his wife gone? who are the new people in charge?? coach schaff was mean. and im sure they took alot, since they would always have there own family work the concesion stands instead of parents so then the parents had no way to even get $10 or $20 dollars back. they are power hungry! and as far as going to another part of utica to play once you sign that paper you can never play again in your own district but then your kids also cant play on an all star team either with the new league! so you minaswell stay where you are for the children

I like how the Schaaf's play the disability card to..if you see them at a bar they are partying it up...so much for the bad back Pat, he's always on the tractor mowing the field....Pat has been a deadbeat since his young days...it's a shame that the league let them walk away with stealing funds...yet if you talk to the Schaaf's they did everything for the kids

My son played in East Utica also. Rock Femia and Lou Rugari and Joe Johnson are group of insecure people. They dont play fair and talk about playing favorites Johnsons kid stunk but played all the time. my kid sat the bench. it is supposed to be fun and fundamental. i guess that they have to relive their youth thru their kids.
