Comments are on!

Things are settling down around here after creating quite the controversy a few weeks ago. I’d like to thank all of you for your emails, phone calls and discussions at the ballpark. I’m humbled by how many of you take time out of your day to visit this site. And after digesting everything I’m excited about the passionate, sometimes heated discussions that took place. Whether you agreed or disagreed one thing is certain, you all care about baseball and have high standards and expectations for your kids, coaches and league. Ultimately that’s a good thing!

One reoccurring theme or question I kept hearing; "How come I can’t post my comments on your site?" The answer was pretty simple –it’s turned off. I’d turned off commenting quite awhile ago and never turned it back on. Well, as of today it’s back on, but I have a couple of rules for you to follow first.

  1. Keep it clean! Lots of folks from all over visit here, including many kids, so lets watch our language.
  2. No anonymous comments! My name is all over this site, I stand behind what I write here and expect the same of you. If you’re not willing to tell us who you are, your real name, then don’t bother. Your email address is also required –it’s for internal use only and for me to communicate with you.
  3. Comments are moderated. I’ll post your comments whether you agree or disagree with me, provided you follow the rules. However, I will review them first so don’t expect an instantaneous posting.

That’s about it. Have fun.

One thought on “Comments are on!

  1. Just wanted to say that for the past three years at the BC ( Of which I have been UIC for two of them) I have had the joy of watching our youth grow and play in the game of baseball, I wish all of the teams and coaches the best of luck in the 2009 season and I hope for the best for all of them.
    In the two years that I WAS the UIC I did my best to bring the standard of the umpires to the highest level of the game that I could, I admit that there were times and games that could have gone better but we are all human and we make mistakes but all in all I think the level of umpireing at the BC was at the highest that it has ever been and I hope that it will continue to do so for I will not be a part of the BC Baseball family in 2009 and it is of no fault of mine or the BC There were just some things that I thought should have been handled different and we did not see eye to eye. But as for the umpires and the rest of the people that I had the pleasure of working with I enjoyed my time there and who knows maybe someday we will meet again at a different field and a different place.
    So this is where I say good bye and God Bless.
