I know it seems I'm hovering over this one but in my opinion, these select/club teams will replace ball at the schools (Middle & High). I mean who cares if you have a Hixson Baseball Club fielding 2 or 3 competitive teams? It takes the cost from the school and it removes the politics from the selection process. I.E. school administrators don't have to field parental complaints and they don't have to deal with the cost burdens. It will probably happen in a generation or so.
These travel/select teams are for the parents forcing their kids to play and are ruining youth sports around the country.
