Each year gets more and more frustrating for our small town leagues. Similar to most youth sports programs there are so many options these days our leagues are smaller and All Star teams tougher to field. Between the shortened seasons, paperwork hassles, trouble getting umpires, two and barbecue teams and little or no chance of advancing leagues are losing interest.
Lately there have been some interesting discussions about scrapping All Stars, running the season through June and then after the 4th having our own District Tournament All Stars. This tourney would not require the affidavits and stop at District Champion.
I'm wondering what the position would be from Williamsport when we request special games. Would they nix it as competing with their "show" ?
