How do you all handle those overzealous parents who aren't exactly breaking the rules with their behavior, but are just slightly to the left of being innappropriate?
We had one coach who actually cheated by changing his lineup mid-game... we called him on it and he had the nerve to deny it...
We had another who was so vehemently enforcing "rules" (as in MLB rules) that there was absolutely no leeway at all and he pulled out a LL rulebook several times every single game! Way to teach sportsmanship!
Then there were the Dads (and Moms!) who yelled stuff at their own kids about how bad the kid was playing!
I'm so glad Little League is over. Fall ball is not far away... And, from what I hear, our soccer league is worse! How do you all handle this stuff? We called our board of directors, who promised to respond, and didn't. Don't say the kids do not notice, the kids are the best scorekeepers, and they notice everything!!

we havent played in awhile and this year we decided to sign both boys up. my son is pretty good I dont like to brag about my son, but he isnt bad. however he was not asked to play on all stars. they are doing a 10 yr old team yet half of it is made up of 9 yr olds. and surprise surprise coaches sons, who in fact are only in it b.c their dads want them to do it. but after reading the guidelines for allstars they can keep it. its $70 for uniforms, and if they cant raise the money for the tournaments you have to come out of pocket. thanks but no thanks, I cant afford it. most of the league members left and went to another, there is always going to be favoritism no matter where you go, and for those parents and teams you just have to grin and bear it and walk way. cheer your own child on. fall ball starts sept 1st.
