Too Good to Play

Thursday, June 23, 2005

A team of 11- and 12-year-old baseball players has been kicked out of its league for being too good.

Earlier this month, the Stars of Columbus, Ohio, were taken off the Canal Winchester Joint Recreation District's (search) schedule, and their $150 entry fee was refunded, reports The Columbus Dispatch.

The 14 boys only joined the suburban league in early May, but since then had creamed every other team that faced them 18-0, 13-0, 24-0, 10-2 and 17-6.

"I called up the league office and said, 'No way are we going to play them,'" Terry Morris, who coaches another team in the division, told The Dispatch. "I wasn't going to subject my players to that."

Pretty soon, all scheduled games were canceled, and the Stars found themselves orphaned.

"I don't think it's fair," said Stars catcher and pitcher Michael Allston, who at 12 stands 5-foot-8. "We always played our best, and we were just winning games."

"[Another] team told us they didn't want their boys' self-esteem battered," said Trina Cochran, mother of 11-year-old Stars player Mario Cochran.

"Our boys went into this with a good attitude," said Darla Perry, whose son R.J., 11, weighs 155 pounds. "It's turned into a disaster."

Opponents' parents charged that the Stars' players were older than they claimed to be and that they were actually an "all-star" team culled from across Columbus.

In return, the Stars' parents began bringing birth certificates to games, as well as documents showing that all but one of the boys lived in the same ZIP code.

League officials and other teams' coaches are unrepentant.

"They were just beating the rec kids up," said Michael Mirones, the league's board chairman. "It's no fun for the kids that are losing."

"We didn't want one of our kids to get hit in the face with a ball," said rival coach Kris Hutchins, who said all his players' parents agreed that their boys not face the Stars.

Stars second baseman Matthew "Boomer" Hufferd, 12, thinks other teams are getting the wrong message.

"If they learn at their age that they can forfeit on things they don't want to do," Hufferd said, "it's quitting."

================================================== =======

I live in the area and know the Columbus Stars baseball program. They are like the Yankees of the rec league.

My question is that do you think the rec league is justified in booting the team or that the Stars shouldn't play to the level of other teams?

Could they have put them in a league with older kids maybe?

That's what I was thinking. But the only thing that confused me is, how does the pitcher catch his own pitches?

I live in the heart of all of this and people think that the league did the right thing based on the fact is that the team is ringers.

The Columbus Stars program is proably the biggest in the state. It's basically an all-star team of diffrent kids from all over the metro area. Many of them do go on to play some form of higher baseball.

Personally, it was best for the split for both sides. How do you expect the Stars players to get better week in and week out playing teams that are nowhere near your talent level. And keep in mind that this is a rec league and 95% of its players play for the fun of it. Now tell me is it fair and if say like the Florida State flag football team takes on the actual FSU football team(a good comparison)?
