Singling out some players as better than others at an all-star game? Those elitist monsters:
Beachwood has cancelled its annual 4th of July Rec League All-Star Game for 9 to 12 year olds.
In a letter to coaches, Assistant Recreation Supervisor Frank Vicchiarelli announced that the decades old tradition would end because certain kids were being singled out as better players than others.
For the all-star game, some coaches encouraged kids to select their team's all-stars, and in other cases the coaches made the selections..
Geniuses, I say. This will certainly give the kids incentive to excel.
