The fact is that Little League wants the players to vote on it. They think its the least political. Explain to me how anyone with talent doesn't make the Top 20? That's crazy to me. Something tells me the player doesn't belong on the team.
The fact is, its not just one player its a few and its happening every year. I know politics is involved. Also, the kids vote for there friends not always the best players because that's who they know best. That's been the reason our all star teams are always losing in the first round. I just feel that we should field the best team we can. The object is to win state or at least try, at least that was the goal when I was younger. That's why you tried to make the team .

Portage American won the district last year. They also won it in 2005. They went 0-3 in states but nobody from District 1 has won a state title since 1976 so it's obviously not a strong district. Portage was the team that won the state title by the way.

Sour grapes taste nasty. I don't know any kid that belongs in the top 12 that wouldn't make the top 20. That sounds wayyyy off to me.
