Major softball saving local softball... now that’s funny.
The major national softball team philosophy has done huge damage to every part of the game it’s touched.
Almost all the elite type players used to be on local teams building strong local programs and influencing young players in a positive manner while teaching and moving the local talent up the division ladder.
Catering to major softball has always been the problem.
It has only been a cure for the sponsors that need to buy something instead of finding potential and building it.
Dale....Argue this point ...
IF MAJOR SOFTBALL IS SO GREAT...why do major teams have to buy and pay for almost everything for players to play?
Localized programs have players helping out with costs more often then not..Major nationalized travel teams would never survive if the players had to pay their own way..why...the answer is obvious...Major Conference nationalized travel softball is only appealing to most when it’s on someone else’s
Neglecting the local programs and focusing on the national style concept...IS the problem.
