I thought I was a member already, but I see my comment in the introduction section as 'Guest Jerrod' so maybe not.
In lieu of a complete standard redraft each year in Minors and Majors, I've read numerous articles about Leagues allowing coaches to assign kids to teams based on their personal knowledge of their abilities, their performance in tryouts and any other information they may have (All Star, travel ball, personal coaches, etc). Once the teams are as evenly divided up as possible, and all coaches agree, they are passed out to the coaches at random and their child is then placed on the team. Last minute tweaking may be necessary to account for the abilities of the coaches' children.
This method, or something very similar, has been approved by Williamsport and in use for several years from what I remember, but I'm not having any luck finding the links I read. One was on a LL Facebook forum and I remember Lou commenting on that site as well, but I'm just not having any luck finding it.
I need to prepare a case for this lesser known draft method to present to our Board and would like any theoretical pros and cons, as well as any real world experience anyone can provide.
