I am just wondering, after attending a few East Carter baseball games, why the kids sitting on the bench never get to play? I know East wants to win, but it wouldn't hurt to put in one or two of these kids each inning. These games are supposed to build character and teach them fair play.
They have to pay for uniforms, shoes, gloves, etc. the same as the main players. Is it fair to the kids to keep them sitting on the bench every game? They go to practice but never get on the field.
Let them play an inning and give them an even chance, that is what is knows as fair play.
