    The 13th 14th All Star means nothing, I mean come on Davidson of Buckhorn made it. I mean he is a good player but their are better players in the region than him. So I wouldn't go by that Kids Fan.

    Sorry but you are talking about the wrong game 5eagles5 yes Muncie and Davidson did make the junior allstars that played the 13 region allsars but I think Muncie played in the east west allstar game not the same one I don't think Davidson played in that one if he did i agree with you Hendrix should have been there and maybe he should have been any way.

    I agree with 5eagles about the "All-Star" games. It was a sham. And by no means am I putting down the players that were there from the 14th. But there were better players that could have went.

    Davidson from Buckhorn deserved to be on the team as much as anyone else in the region. Just becacuse he doesn't play for the power teams such as Leslie, Perry, and Powell doesn't mean he isn't one of the better players in the region. Don't get me wrong. There are a lot of players who deserved to be on the East/West team, but only two make it. Hendrix and Morgan from Leslie and Osborne and Thomas from Lee are all great players. Davidson played very well in the games. If he would have went down there and played terrible I could possibly see some criticism.

    Coaches vote for the players to represent the 14th region. When two players from the same team are nominated (like Morgan, Hendrix and Osborne,Thomas) sometimes it splits the votes. The players coach can vote for only one of his and one other player from another team that has been nominated.

    I understand the format but most of the folks on this thread were the same one's defending one of the players earlier this year. If we are going to send the top 2 then maybe how they are selected needs to be re-evaluated. Don't mean to change the thread but it's just an opinion. I would love to have the problem of Munice and Hendrix on the same team. What a nice problem that would be.

    I agree. How they vote for players needs to be changed. Who coached the 14th Region All Stars?

    Rather that debate who is the top player let's all be proud that the 14th has not one but two top notch players.

    Are you talking about the 13th/14th region all star games or the East/West all star games? Because they are two totally seperate things. I do believe coaches vote on both,but I'm not sure the coach of the 14th region all stars has anything to do with the east/west games. He has the same number of votes as any other coach. Although, I've been told by a somewhat reliable source that the coaches of the two final teams in the regional tourney usually coach the all stars, but declined, saying they wanted so and so to take the team and he in turn votes for who they want from their teams on the squad and the players who are supposed to be "stand-outs, get the most playing time in the games. I'm sure the east/west choices are much more politically motivated, since there are only two players from each region that are initially asked, but , hey, that's just the way it is. I've seen most of these guys play and I think they pretty much all deserved to be there. As for the east/west choices, if you get voted in, you get voted in. It's a matter of votes, political or not.

    Mr Umpire

    You said that the coaches of the two final teams in the regional tournament are suppose to coach the 13/14 all star game? This year was the second year of the all star game and the same coach from the 14th region has coached the game twice. He has given up two fathers day sundays to coach that team when he didn't have to. He has a young son and I am sure he would like to spend that day with him. In other words, the two coaches aren't suppose to coach it. It is a voluntary deal in which the coach chooses to give his personal time to help out players he doesn't even know.

    As for the selection of the 14th regional representatives in the East/West All Star game, the choice of player is much different than in years past. In past years there have been only 5-6 schools involved in the KHSBCA, a requirement of being on the team. Coach Dean, the regional representative, has done a great job in getting everyone involved. Now the 14th region has, I believe, 12-13 members in the KHSBCA. This is one of the largest memberships of any region in the state. When you have that many teams involved the vote may get skewed. However, we will always send solid representatives to the East/West game.

    My post was not meant to be a criticism to the coach of the all star team. He did have a brother on the team, but anyone who gives up personal time to do something with a group of kids is a good thing. And as I said, my source was "somewhat reliable". I might also point out that I defended his role in the fact that his brother also played in the east/west series, when a lot of other people on this forum have criticized that choice. I try never to publicly say negative things about kids or their ability no matter what I might think. I was simply stating that sometimes we don't agree with choices made in things, but that's just life and people shouldn't whine and make such a big deal about everything. Sorry if I stepped on your toes.

    You may want to check on how reliable your source really is. That is the craziest thing I have ever heard. Besides, some of the "stand-outs" didn't even show up for whatever reason. I guess that was political too. All of the players who were there played a lot. Not one players played more than he should have. It is hard to get 20+ players evenly on playing time, but it was close. There were two different starting line-ups. The pitchers only threw one or two innings. As for the East/West, I thing we have several players in the 14th Region who are great players. The only thing is, we can only send two. The two we sent for the junior team were very good players and they done very well in the games. I congratulate both of them for their accomplishment.

    Davidson is a very solid player. He has sound fundamentals and is an excellent athlete on top of that. He has been around a .400 hitter his entire high school career and from what I understand, performed well in the east-west game that he supposedly wasn't good enough to play in.

    There are several talented players in this region and who is better will definitely differ from person to person. However, to say that Davidson didn't deserve to be in the all-star game is taking it a bit too far. In my mind, he is as talented as most in the region. You can say what you want, his numbers at the end of this season will do his talking.
