1. Has your weekend been busy or relaxing?

2. How often do you dust?

3. Are you excited for March Madness?

I'm sure many places make exceptions, especially in jam's experiences of moving and needing to join a new team because of relocation.  Ime, most places have signups, a late signup period with a fee and the it's rare that someone is added to the team after the season starts in many competitive leagues.  Now non-competitve leagues like the Y, I would say it's common as long as there is space.  There are of course exceptions at times, but again that can be rough on the coach, as I said earlier.

Because a child in little legue should come conditioned and prepared to start a game.  Sounds threatening to me, I know moms like her and they aren't the kind you want to be around.

Then that is just your lack of experience and that is ok. No one knows every league in every town and what they do. Shrug.

Did he come from another team or just sign up without any previous practice or experience?

I guess it is all about competition with some mothers. I don't know many kids who come to a league and don't know anything about the game anyway. No playing at home? No teaching at home? No prior experience? Seems quite odd to me. 

I guess some parents are upset that their little Johnny might have some competition if they allow a kid to come in after the registration. lololol.

Why does it matter? Sounds like you would have a problem taking over your child's position if someone came in with or without experience.

<<It is on the website each and every year. Doesn't your little league have a website that tells you about sign ups and deadlines and if they take late players?>>

That doesn't mean it happens, how do you know it happens all the time?  What do you mean, "my little league"?

<<So you are familiar with this? Sounds like you have had a bad experience with it. >>

What part of this haven't you understood from the beginnning when I said it was rough on the coaches to add late players?

My kids have played in places where they turned down money and players, so yes there are some that turn down money.

Well, the pka has had some choice words to say about other team parents before so it's not shocking what comes out of her mouth anymore, Lol.

It matters if somebody else's experience threatens hers.  Competition but in a very unhealthy way.
