Poor DS was DEVISTATED. Different team then he was on last year but this year's team finished 1-15 last year and his team finished in first place but lost in the finals of the city serious. DS team last year was second to last and while they had a record just below .500 they were beaten up by the other teams so I can only imagine the kids that went 1-15 and as parents we were just proud they held their heads up and took the field this spring and stayed in first the whole season. He had 8 returning players on his team but they kids keep harping on lossing the final game. They go from worst to first, still get the first place trophy but now my son came home from the final game took off his cleats and said never again will he play. Course he said this last year too so we shall see...

oh he "quit" but then again he "quit" last year when his team was in second to last so we shall see. I think they will make him move up to the majors. They need 23 kids, last year they only needed 12 so very few 10 year olds moved but this coming year they need more kids so they are going to have take any age eligable kid.

His coach from the year before tried to recruit him for 10 year old summer league but he doesn't turn 10 until July 24 so they won't let him play. I was kind of hoping if he could get back with this coach who is more laid back he might change his tune but not that I want to sit at baseball fields in the dog days of summer after a long day of work. Think we all need a break :)

It is really hard to play on a bad team. Is there something else he wants to try? I told my kids to try everything under the sun, you can always go back to something you like!!
