I know we talk about this untill we are all blue in the face, but I can't help it.
We play rec baseball in the fall in Columbus, Ohio. It is just so sad to see the demise of rec ball in my city. Other cities and state's seem to still have strong rec program's and money and field's don't seem to be a problem. With the exception of "daddy ball" a phrase I hear alot on here why has our rec program's suffered so nation wide. Our fall program has 14 team's with only 6 coach's.....only two with experience..sad. What choice does a parent have other than to play travel? To be honest I would rather play rec given my sons age, but I must be honest it is in big trouble here. Do you bite the bullet and hope the weaker talent level and coaching doesn't hurt in the future, or just say hey if my kid is good enough the cream will rise eventually?
