I am going to start by saying, Steve & Heels, for the past 20 years I have seen this Softball Orginazation go from having 30+ teams with a 2 year waiting list. Firm rules set the same as if we were at the state level. To a league that is now down to 18 teams filled with questions about what the next year will bring. You cannot make everyone happy at anything. Softball has changed a lot not only at the local level but the "BAT" issues have alter this game more than any of us. "The Norristown League" is caught between the tradition that Heels and Steve know oh-too-well and the new generation game that we see today. YOUNG PEOPLE IN AMERICA NEED STRUCTURE! Stop trying to please everyone. Tell everyone how its going to be. The talk around the league is that teams will leave if you don't give in. The State of the A division caused teams to move on and guess what, the players who play here are still here. I can only speak for the 2 teams that I have played for over the last 10 years. Players who were part of these teams didn't leave because they didn't like the league or the way it was run. They left because they were "DONE PLAYING".
I ask both Steve and Heels - Set the Standard. If you want 7-10 teams in the A - DO IT.... The teams that play here, want to play here. I also like the idea of implementing a "PREMIER LEAGUE" set of rules. You finish in last in the "A", you have the option of moving down. Same goes for the B. If you win the B or the C, you will move up 1 level. I also like the idea, that if you win the regular season in your division and then lose in the finals, you should move up. Knowing it going into the season is a must. There would be nothing you can complain about this time next year.
A Division: Ribhouse....beer......Smitty's......paragon.....Nonna.....Facenda....Jared's .....romans... (8 Teams)
B division:. Trappe...ccmm ...Newteam....Rec....Depauls..Steppys..Gibbons..Hilife..3M..CCI (10 Teams)
No more making everyone happy..... Fix the problem - No more letting the inmates, run the asylum
