14u top teams this season

by crankshaft » Thu Nov 15, 2018 8:37 am

Good read schmick.
15-20th on roster
top tier teams
is still scout worthy for the colleges. It expresses that you have the talent to make the team. Their goal is to get the players recruited. Showcasing the 15 -20th players that aren't recruited will get to play. Tournaments, Nationals
Starting 9 !

Your post seems better suited for the tryout page or elsewhere...but congrats on the roster size, and TCS victory.

Believe the Thornburg/Kaiser team is called Brashear/Thornburg now.

The Adams team is good but I don't believe I'd rank them in the top 10 in So Cal.

More a Brashear thing, dude has ten 14u Firecracker teams, himself, hope Rico is giving him a break.
14 girls a team, 10 teams, 25 dollars a month per girl...... that's $3,500 a month and over 38k a year to Rico for just his 14 year olds dues. That doesn't include all the Firecracker shirts, uniforms, sweatshirts, visors, hats.... that Tony is making off of Brashear's squads and their parents.

Makes you wonder why Brashear doesn't go out on his own, he has more 14U teams than OC Batbusters, Mercado Athletics, American Pastime, Explosion....

Uhhh don't know that for sure he takes a cut of his own... But other coaches within that org has.

That's up to people if they want to put their money towards their own team or their money towards someone else's pocket. Down side is they don't always disclose where that money is going to, so there's a lot of people that don't realize they're contributing to pockets instead of their team. There are other orgs that offer a stipend for their coaches and are transparent about it.
Wouldn't mind paying a coach a stipend if it's a quality coach. They put in a lot of time and if they're knowledgeable and developing athletes, think they should be compensated.
Never pay extra to fill someones pocket who does nothing with the team!

I have to give props to Schmick, nice to see objectivity and honesty here. I would love to see this discussion expand to California. The whole planet knows So. Cal is the MECCA for softball (regardless of what Texas THINKS), and most sports period. The best NORCAL teams are down south every weekend, and honestly are not really claimed by NORCAL, because they rarely play there. I do have a kid on a Norcal team, but would love to see what the list looks like for the top 04 teams in California. Well the list with Dirtdogs-Pick and Breeze-Fernald, now that the fall season is complete.
