I have known Dennis for over ten years during that time I seen him coach teams both travel and L.L. I have seen him Sponser and Umpire countless games He would give you the shirt off his back. He has a great family 3 boys and a girl and has great wife. Until I here both sides of the story I am going to stand by my Frend. He would do the same for you. One other thing the players are polled to see what kids should be on the All Star team its discussed between the coaches and the team is formed. Parents should not get hung up on weather there kids on the All Star team or not

IT'S EASY TO SPONSOR AND VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME WHEN YOU HAVE AN EXTRA 14K IN YOUR POCKET!(AND THAT'S JUST ONE YEARS WORTH OF EXTRA PAY)

Nice try Iceman, or should I say MT...Dennis Walsh was the most abusive coach in the history of the WBLL. While I agree that he has 4 great kids that has nothing to do with the crimes he committed aginst our kids. Its people like you that empowered Dennis to do what he did. He used EVERY opportunity to profit off of our Little League....Pepsi, Superstar Sports, opening day picnic...WE all knew he was crooked but only one person had the balls to try and prove it(Mike Brown). So while it is noble of you to defend him, we all know that the real dollar amount will be closer to 60 to 100 thousand dollars.

By the way...Dennis Walsh NEVER sponsored a team in 10 years in the WBLL. I challenge the Iceman to name 1 team that he or his company sponsored.

Iceman...I never said my son didn't play for Dennis. I also challenged you to name a team he ever put his OWN money into. Whats sad is your baseless defense of Dennis!

Kudos to Mike Brown for having some balls. Great Guy obviously even though I do not know him. To bad the rest of the board could not be like him. Maybe this board will get smart and open the books for all to see, hire an accountant and ask for competitive bids for all equipment and uniforms purchased over 500.00. With all these 400 or 500 players I ask why is everything bought from 1 store with no bids. This practice can only lead to abuse. Also why is it not a rule to have two signatures on a check. Pretty simple way to prevent easy abuse. Also I know who the cook is (he should stick to cooking), give us a hint on Barney and the guy who picks his nose and the board member arrested in East Boynton. It is killing me!!!!!

I agree. Number 1 is useless, Number #2 is Clueless, and number #3 is gross.

Wholley crap!!!(yes I ment that)

I cannot belive the venom that spewes forth!!!! I always thought the White/Black line was the ultimate frontier.... I was so stupid. You parents should be ashamed of yourselves. Read your own posts, you sound like a bunch of lunatics!!! no wonder your kids need riddelin(sp). Cant you just treat it for the game that it is???? My god, it's only a game!!!! get over yourselves, quot trying to live your youth thru your kids and move on!! it's a dammm game played in the dirt with sticks and a ball. You are supposed to be teaching your kids sportsmenship, not the repressed anger and disguest you carry. Your kids will turn out ok, but they will still choose your nursing home.....
OK if I gotta splian.... You make your kids messed up cause you gotta try and recitfy your own failings thru them, go ahead... they will still turn out alright, they will learn to leave your baggage at your door, not theirs. They will rise above your failings (as did oprah), but you will be left in the comet trail that is their life.......... Bye!!!!!!

This really has nothing to do with the actual game of baseball. Did you read the title of the article?? It is EMBEZZLEMENT!!! This person stole money from US! My child still plays baseball and doesn't know about the wrong doings of the board. He does not take ridalin nor does he need it.

It's not the game, it's the crime

Let him have his day in court.

Until then, stop acting like fanatic parents and let your children enjoy a great game. Celebrate their accomplishments, and help them when they fall.

They will remember how you acted that long after this is gone

I disagree with you about the clique. I know all of the players on the West Boynton Little League All-Star teams, and have coached most of them (and no, my son is not on the team). They represent the best talent in the league at this time. During my participation in the league, I have never felt that the board did not take the interests of ALL PLAYERS to heart.
Get your head out of the sand, the only reason those board members are there is to use the talent pool to recuit players to there travel teams. Take a hard look at all the board members back then and you'll see that they all have there own travel team, West Boynton passes out travel team approvals like grocery stores passing out coupons!!!!! WAKE UP !!!
