and now we have our answer
tee ball – not for us
For anyone looking for a well-organized, affordable entry into baseball for their kiddo, I highly suggest AVOIDING the Leander/Cedar Park Youth League AS IF IT WERE THE BIRD FLU.
If you remember, we were doing the "no rain" dance around here a few weeks ago so that the Wee One’s last tee ball game and trophy ceremony wouldn’t be canceled. Alas, our dance didn’t do the trick and there were storms all night. The game was canceled and supposedly never rescheduled. I was told (after contacting the "commissioner") to wait to hear from our coach about when the closing ceremonies would be held.
I found out TODAY that closing ceremonies were held on the 14th. NO ONE CALLED. NO ONE EMAILED. No one made any attempt to contact us and let us know.
Now, I realize that most of the other kids on the Wee One’s team have older siblings in the league and thus are somehow privy to important and yet secret information like WHEN THE SEASON EFFING ENDS, but come on. Should we be penalized because we don’t have an older child playing? Is it my responsibility to hound the coach and leave a cell phone message every single day until I hear what’s going on? I thought the coach and/or the "team mom" were in charge of letting parents know what was going on. Silly me.
Now the wee one has no closure. And that sounds a bit ridiculous, I know, but he doesn’t understand why tee ball is spontaneously over. He was expecting at least a trophy. And so was I. I guess I’ll have to waddle myself down there and raise holy hell so he can get his trophy and I can let them know just how poorly organized their "league" is.
I’m pissed, because we liked the coach (when he bothered to tell us what was going on) and we enjoyed the games (that we knew about), and we really liked the quality of the Wee One’s snazzy tee ball cap. Was this "half-season" worth $75, plus the cost of a bat, a glove, pants, etc.? I don’t think so.
You suck, Leander/Cedar Park Youth League.
You suck big, sweaty donkey balls.
And you owe us a trophy.
