This isn't new for Tupelo but I don't think that school's student body is the exception. It seems more visible at Tupelo because the student body bleachers aren't in left or right field like many other schools. Instead, they are elbow to elbow with the parents from the visiting teams. I suspect you could hear some of the same taunting from any student body where the student body bleacher is in left/right field. Sounds like the Tupelo baseball coach could take some initiative here to get Administration involved in regards to the taunting by putting teachers in the stands to control the student body.

You can't fix stupid!!!

I have noticed that teams with class pay special attention to their visitors, treating them as honored guests, making sure their needs were met, and going out of their way to make sure they have equal access to everything the home team has. As for the unruly fans - again, that simply shows no class. We (all who are involved in the great sport of baseball) may be opponents, but we all are human beings, hopefully brothers and sisters in Christ, and we all should treat one another with more respect. It seems to me that basic respect and common decency is quickly fading away from all aspects of life, especially competitive sports.

gotoman-- you must be the coach but anyway- I would like to know who you asked for the ice, because our booster club parents would have made sure you had ice! We(booster club) provide iced down drinks for our players both home and away so maybe we are not familiar with having to provide for visiting teams. As far as the students yelling at your players, our AD, Danny Porter and new football coach David Bradberry made the students move to the stands. We do not have a left field lounge, and the adminstration will not let us have one. I don't understand what you mean by visible repremand but I know that several teachers along with the AD and Bradberry had conversations with these few students. As far as washing the dugout, I don't know that it was done or not but there are drains all along the fronts of the dugouts plus it is hard to make turface muddy. Sorry you had these inconviences and we(booster club) will work on all of these to get them corrected. Play ball!!
