Well Brookwood (the good ole boy network of daddy ball) is at

Posted: 2/1/2012 10:08 AM

Well Brookwood (the good ole boy network of daddy ball) is at 


again.....

No pro style tryout but rather a 2 day scrimmage for tryout.

17 man roster including the 3b that was throwing the ball 10 feet over the 1b head, and the skinny kid who's father ran the golf tournament fund raiser.

2 of the top hitter's from 9th and 10th grade the past 2 years? Cut!

It happens all over the state this time of year.

So would you say that Brookwood's #3 pre-season rating from GA Dugout Club is overrated?

Also, does Brookwood have that small of a roster (17) every year at the varsity level?

Oh it does? I did not know that, I thought it was just a Brookwood thing.

Yes I would say that it is overrated, no way that is the 3rd best team in the State.

And as far as I know they had about 24 last year, and I said 17 but their website actually has 16 players listed for varsity.

The 3B, the skinny kid, the 9th and 10th graders who were cut. It appears you disagree with the coach's selections. Who would you have cut or kept?

Re: Well Brookwood (the good ole boy network of daddy ball) is 


Well I do not see why players who proved themselves in 9th grade and JV would be cut and not get a chance to play varsity. Also I do not see the justification of a 16 man roster when most other schools carry around 25.

Me personally, if I am keeping the good ole boy network kids that struck out every time they bat during tryouts on the team then I would keep the other kids that at least hit a ball at at the tryout.

Certain people like the coach Brookwood seems to think that he is in a position of power instead of just being a teacher that coaches baseball.

He is in a position of power. It's his team. Like it or not, the parents don't get any say in who he keeps. If a parent is displeased, they can just take their kid off to another school like everybody always seems to do up there in metro ATL. Life isn't fair, and the sooner the kids learn that complaining gets you nowhere and sometimes you have to work harder when you aren't in 'the clique', the further they'll go in life. Sad commentary on modern America, but that's how it is.

Former head coach here...

Keeping 25 players is asking for trouble. More whining about playing time and more parents to navigate through during a hectic season.
I coached with Rick Howard years ago. I doubt he is playing 'daddy ball'. Hey, you don't win rings playing 'daddy ball'...

Re: Well Brookwood (the good ole boy network of daddy ball) is 


25 players is asking for trouble? So every other school in 5A is asking for trouble huh?

And I was not aware that he had won "rings", as far as I know he only won 1 time a few years back opposed to Parkview who seem to be more objective and have won "rings".

go read what I said, do you need your eyes checked? You said he has won RINGS which means more than one, and I said they won it ONE time only in all the years he has been the coach. Parkview has won it 3 times in the last decade because they play to win they don't play to promote the kin of the good ole boy network like Brookwood does.

Re: Well Brookwood (the good ole boy network of daddy ball) is 


He is in a position of power? No he is a gym teacher that coaches high school baseball which means he should give kids the chance to participate without any politics involved.

Looking at some of your posts you seem to be a member of the "good ole boy" network wishing the south will rise again so I am not surprised at your point of view.

He is the head coach...............that gives the authority (power, if you will) to control the direction of the baseball team.  That is not up for debate.  If kids just want to play baseball there are plenty of rec teams.

And show me any post where i talk about the south rising again or any indication of me being part of the good ole boy................. Just show me one post concerning the south rising again.  And do it soon.

You're wrong again.  I didn't say anything about them winning rings, that was dickdasturdly.  What I said was, check the 2010 5A State Champs and see how many players were on the roster.  That is a simple statement, nothing to argue about or discuss.   Just check it out.

Did you do that yet?  Probably not.
