I’m torn – I want to drive some traffic to the site and get some people talking. There are a lot of reasonable good subjects that I will try and discuss in the coming weeks. But there are also lots of “fun” subjects that get people talking and sometimes if done improperly hurt peoples feelings… I want to avoid hurting feelings, but I do think it is fun to make predictions and analyse teams – even if its just youth baseball.
The way I see it is a lot of parents spend a lot of money on their kids and their teams. I think we can all agree that it is a big commitment in terms of money and time. While we all want to win at the younger levels winning really is secondary- what is important is that the kids are learning on and off the field. So if a few parents who have a vested interest in the youth game and want to share their opinions it is OK.
So I’ll share my opinion with a small caveat – I’m not going to rank any MCBC HitDog teams. As a coach and parent in that organization I’m going to try and be unbiased – I’ll leave it to the masses to slot MCBC in where ever they see fit.
My 12-14U preseason rankings will be posted in separate posts over the next few days so please be sure to:
