Rather than this so called division, I'd much rather see JC and Paintsville alike sink the money like that into a middle school program to be a feeder for the high school program. It seems the prime age for kids leaving a program is 13-15 year olds and that seems to be a concern. All-stars and league play seem to be not as interesting by this time, and 11-12 year olds seem the most interesting and the prime age for All-Stars. I know another issue brought up is the kids being left out at the All-Star level and not getting a chance then quitting when it comes to high school. I think the establishment of middle school teams on both behalves could be more beneficial than the start of the new league. Then the kids who didn't make all-stars, and don't get to play JV or Varsity while in middle school still get a shot at playing during this so called down time. I also understand that some kids don't reach their max potential until they're older, and a middle school team would seem to keep the kids' interest in the high school program. I'm thinking in a way for the kids of Johnson County's best interest. I've personally seen many kids, not make all-stars but gain friends for a life time from an opposing school and still enjoy playing. I have nothing against the start of the Cal Ripken league and I hope it can get off the ground as well as I hope the Paintsville league doesn't have to fold. Good Luck to both leagues!!!Advertisement

Sep 20, 05, 11:13 AM #62I think the new league is going to be good for central.. All the years i played little league.. I had great friends i played with then when summer was over we went our seperate ways.. BUt some kids didnt the little league under paintsvilles name helped them get kids that use to go to central... I think that the people at central hope that this may keep some kids from going to Paintsville.

Sep 20, 05, 09:37 PM #69This league should not be about the city county problems.The kids should be able to play where they want to and the schools they go to, should not help make that decision.PLL will lose numbers but the league will survive.
