This has to be one of the most racist organizations that I have ever experienced in my whole life. I listened to many people refer to parents and children asking if they had that "n*****" coach. The commissioner was notified of many incidents and did not take action against any one of the parents involved in this behavior and continues to allow them to do this in front of everyone present. Many of us have listened year after year to teams say that they let all of their "black" players go because calls were not being made equally against the all "white" teams. One coach even stated he let his "black" assistant coach go and his child after a tournament in Edmond. Apparently Edmond did not fairly call the game but the coach said after he let the "black" coach go he has had no further problems. I know many parents that watch their child ride the bench for 2 out of 3 innings, the one inning played they were in the out field and be at the end of the line up every single game the whole season.... did I mention that the child was the only "black" child on the team. The commissioner at the ball park will not listen or take any of these complaints seriously. I guess that is because he hand picks the teams and he makes sure his "buddies" get their pick of kids and then he groups together all of the children of any color and tries to place them on one team. The conversations with the commissioner are pointless unless your skin looks like his. He will not acknowledge your concerns at all and will not back a coach for anything in the world. He will, on the other hand, kiss a parents behind to their face and then place blame only on certain volunteer coach's. It is hard enough to try to have any conversation with the commissioner with any type of discretion because he allows everyone to listen. The man speaks on things that he does not care to try to understand, he does not enforce safety (he allowed a person that he knew carried a concealed weapon in the park after he was notified), and allows his umps to taunt coach's in front of the children during game play. Immature ridiculous behavior.
