Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

James led in fielding percentages on most every stat. range factor per game (putouts + assists/games played) 9.39 fielding percentage (putouts + assists + errors) .994 Double plays turned 93 122 games played only 7 errors on first assists total 83 putouts 1063 all leaders of the Florida State Adv. A League just sayin'

You completely forgot Michelle Akers, one of the finest women soccer players ever to play either forRead More the US or the world; Michelle & Mia Hamm led the USNWT to their first FIFA World Cup & Olympic Gold.

"James would again compete in Atlanta in 1996, and this time he’d be joined by anotherRead More Shorecrest grad, Michelle Akers. While James would take 24th place in the 50km race walk, Akers, a 1984 grad, would start all five matches for the US women’s soccer team, scoring a crucial tying goal on a penalty kick in a semifinal against Norway en route to a gold medal performance.
