All Star Baseball in Pleasanton is a joke
Original post made

Has anyone else experience the "Has Been Dad" factor when it comes to All Stars in this town? The Board picks the All Star coach before the All Stars are even selected. The Has Been Dad All Star Coach then selects his son (who is terrible), his "has been buddies" to help coach with their sons (who are terrible) and the result is a "Has Been Dad" bonding with their "will never be sons" over baseball. The "Has been Dad Coaches" then get to brag about their kids and wear their All Star shirts around town. It happens every year but is getting worse. I watched the 12 year old "All Stars" yesterday and they were anything but All Stars. When are these Dads going to back down and truly honor the kids that deserve to wear the All Star uniform? Suggestion: All Stars are selected based on ability and then a coach named to coach them. Is that too easy?
