My son is playing baseball for his elementary/middle school and there is no funding for more uniforms. I'm asking for any suggestions to help raise money fast. We are already 2 games into the season! I love the coaches ethics and that is why I'm trying to help. You see, they already have 15 uniforms but they have 27 kids that want to play. The coach doesn't care if they win or loose, he refuses to cut any of the kids because"they don't play well", he teaches them good sportsmanship, respect & being positive & encouraging to your team mates! This coach gives everyone a chance to learn the game of baseball. Most of the players are first timers but their GPA is there and they qualify to be able to play. The players range from 6th-8th grades. Both schools that we have played only have the "good" players & are in 8th grade, so they all have nice clean "spiffy" uniforms! What happened to "teaching" all of them the game?????? It's supposed to be a fun time for them! Afterall, a PRO baseball player could possibly come out of one of these youngsters if given the right teachings & add a great attitude. Can anyone help?
