Re: The the convention coming up. Why all the hate with me saying there should be a meeting to address
TM60, you are again beating a dead horse over and over and over. How many times can you keep posting the same thing? DW, DS4 and multiple others keep saying what their thoughts are which are the same as almost everyone but yours. No one is going to agree with you and just because you keep posting it, won't make anyone agree with you. It boils down to again families, potential players just not interested, work, etc...the HQ in Florida can't be responsible for every park district that runs by USSSA rules to make sure they are getting teams, and younger teams, to play. It is all the local people who run those park districts that need to beat the grass and push to get the local younger generation out there. I know multiple PD guys and they are truly sick of the softball drama and would prefer to only run kids baseball and softball. More money and less headache's. I started playing ball at 18 with 1 of my friends whose older brother's had a team and it has snowballed into 33 years of fun and awesome memories. I posted before that I am an umpire and all the towns we do are way down compared to when I started umping 19 years ago. When I started, we played in a Monday/Wednesday league, most leagues are lucky enough to get enough teams to run 1 night, let alone 2. I know you will reply, give us stats, let's look the real reasons why, etc...you are not helping the situation at all by posting here or the senior board. Go to the convention and have a worthwhile IN PERSON conversation.
