did you know that some baseball teams will literally pay for an entire kids family to fly places so the kid can play in a tournament for the team?
we're talking like a 9 or 10 year old kid here. they will pay for him and his entire family to fly from say california to florida, pay for their hotel, the tournament fees, etc... just so this kid can play baseball with them.
so naturally i sit here and think A- is the kid REALLY that good?? and then B- is their baseball tournament REALLY that fucking serious (cause i'm thinking, get the fuck over yourselves)?? and then C- is that really even fair??
i mean, the kid isn't even from their town- let alone their state... why should he be allowed to play on the team? seriously? omg, it's like the yankees of youth baseball. have you ever heard of this before? does it surprise you? should it not surprise me?
