Can someone tell me when they vote for New Little League board members? We just moved to this community and our first taste of this league was not a good one. Not sure who the folks are that run it but I think some changes are in order. Seems like a good ole boys club. My husband would love to be a part of this,and would probably even be on the board. I am not sure the current folks pu the kids first. Seems like alot of folks tried living through there kids.I heard alot of grumblings around the fields this year and thought it was just parents being silly. After the season I now feel the same way. How long have these folks run this league? Thanks for any help you can give.
hmmmm

I don't know what you saw or think but this league runs great. The current board has only been together a couple years and the changes are amazing. I'm assuming you were not around during the last board. If you had been you would be happy now for sure. They always put the kids first. Every single time.

I agree with hmmmm. The current board members do a great job. This league was in shambles two years ago and the last two years have been great. The amount of time and money put into the fields and facilities has been amazing. I don't think the original poster was around before this board. If she was she would know our kids are in great shape now. Keep up the good work and keep the current board!

Wow! Apparently "Baseball" hasn't been around this league ever. This board is 100 times better than the last board. They don't steal money either. It is not a boys club, plenty of women on the current board. They do a great job for our kids! Keep them together!

The board is nothing as you describe. They certainly put the kids first in every aspect. Obviously they do have to follow Little League rules as set forth, which sometimes are not good. However, as others have stated, the prior board was awful. They stole money from the league and never gave our kids anything.

The current board has been together for two years and they are doing a great job. I wouldn't let my kids play anywhere else. You want to see a bad league that doesn't put the kids first? Try Hurricane Little League and Hurricane baseball league. They are cut throat! At least in Winfield our kids have fun and play fair.

They have some great volunteers that spend many many hours working to make the league great for our kids. They have my vote!

Maybe it should be more like Hurricane's league. Because when you go to high school baseball or higher its not about fun anyways its about coaches winning. Maybe thats why Hurricane always gets the scouts. And btw im not from hurricane...

It has nothing to do with money. It is a volunteer organization. I have been around those fields a lot, almost everyday, or at least every other day, for the last 5 years. The current board puts a lot of time and money into the league to make it a better time for the kids and the parents. They had a lot of catching up to do due to the last board's neglect. My kids have had a much better time the last couple of years than they did before. That is a testament to the current board. I hope they stay together for a long while.

If you really want to see a 3 ring circus hang out around the meetings and the folks that run this league. I agree that the first year they did a ton of improvements, much needed approvements. Everyone thought the new board would be the best thing since sliced bread. Then the power struggles began. Too many chiefs not enough Indians. Do it for the kids not the adults

I think the current board is doing a great job. The work hard at it. Sure, there is some disagreements between them as there is in anything. But, overall, they are doing a fine job with the league. My son has really enjoyed it the last two years and we have as well. Can't say the same for the years prior to that.

Send your kid to hurricane where he can one day have a legitimate shot at a AAA state championship and possibly have a chance for scouts to look at him.

Just because they are better than the last board that was horrible, that doesnt mean that this board is good. Better than horrible can still be really bad.

The board just had a meeting and brought in uniform folks. I hear Gunters Logos was not invited to the meeting but the new place run by the Kuhls were. I find that very sad. Gunters has taken care of that league for years and to not have them at least offer a bid. I sure hope football and basketball do not treat Gunters like that. Goes to show that this board is out for themselves. Take care of the local folks you idiots, give both a chance. Big Daddy "G" must be getting kick backs.
