I continue to receive reaction to my blogs about the Franklin Little League. The above headline came from an interesting e-mail sent to me from Mike in Michigan:
"My son also pitched to a 6-0 record for a team that ran away with the championship at 17-1. He also batted .428 with one HR and didn’t make his All Star team. In fact, only one kid from his team made it. The two All Star coaches, whose teams combined for 20 losses, have their players filling half the slots.
I think you’ll find this story of politics and 'inside baseball' to be very common."
I wouldn't doubt that. The Little League is a terrific organization. It's a shame politics played by some parents have to spoil things.
Watch for some final thoughts on the Franklin Little League situation soon on This Just In.
