I've seen a few kids that play with different teams all the time as guest players. Either you join the team permanently or you don't. Of course you see the pompous father of the guest player walking around with his chest puffed up. Gun for hire? yeah right. Join a team and stick with it you free loader.

First of all you know nothing moron. Most guest playing opportunities are created due to injuries and players not being able to make a game. Also some teams need guest players because they have no depth in a certain position mostly pitchers and catchers. So if a proactive father sees an opportunity to get more playing time for his daughter why is that wrong. You obviously are a Island Fastpitch professional softball Dad. If you got off the Island and played in a real High Exposure tournament you would see most of the top teams bring in extra pitching and maybe a bat if needed. You could be playing up to 6 or 7 games in a day at 90 to 100 degree weather. So stop hating on the guest players and go over and give them a big hug and thank you as most parents do who get it.


Obviously, you did not play any high level organized sports growing up. This explains your warped vision towards guest players. You probably sat in the stands watching the game concucting a fantasy world in your mind that involves you, the gun for hire. A player coveted by many teams. You're the one calmly making the 2 free throws with time expired and your team down by 1. You make 2 and win and is carried on the shoulder and you pumping your fist to signify a thriumphant win. Or your the quarterback who comes in for the injured starter that rally the team from 6 touchdown behind to a last second hail mary touchdown and again you are carried on the shoulder and people chanting your name. So after years of having all these scenarios in your head you finally can live the dream through your darling daughter as the perennial guest player.
How happy you must be. So i pose you the question, who really is the loser?

With the way they are going about taking LI Players and coaches its about nothing more than money.
I dont care who is ďtrainingĒ the kids over the winter
when game time comes and its Joe, Mike, Sal, Linda, Pat etc etc coaching the kids during game time etc
you are doing nothing more than just shelling out money and getting scammed

Intensity will not do anything for these groups going over there except collect their checks

why in the world would any organization take sub standard coaches and sub standard players other than the fact that they want to collect money ?

Obviously have quite a few parents of kids who are the 10th-15th players on Travel softball teams hating on guest players. The problem doesnít lie with the guest player but with the parents of the kids who are getting benched due to guest players. I bet you that while your daughter was at a Friday night sleepover said guest player was at a hitting lesson. While your daughter was getting her nails done said guest player was taking grounders from her dad. While your daughter was crying because some boy was rude to her on Instagram or Snapchat said guest player was hitting a bucket of balls. Donít hate on a travel coach for wanting to win. Donít hate on a guest player for being better then your daughter. Hate on yourself for not recognizing that your daughters passion is not softball. If your on the end of the bench on any Long Island Travel Fastpitch team itís for a reason. Either Dad or Mom is forcing it on them or they just donít have the talent. What your forgetting is itís Travel Softball not Little League. I agree in Little League it would be unacceptable to sit a player for a guest player but in Travel your stepping into another realm. I can guarantee that the best hitter and the best fielder are not sitting for guest players. Not everyone is cut out to play softball. Maybe itís Ping Pong or poetry or something else that would better suit your kid. You live in a unfair world where the doers get rewarded and the DONT doers dont. Have a nice day.

So now we know what kind of coach you are. Only a select few on your team get the training, teaching and the guidance. Winning is the ultimate goal of your team. Not the devopment of this young girls towards the sport. No life lessons taught. And the supporting cast will remain a supporting cast. They are allowed to as you say have their nails done on nights that other kids particularly yours is in the hitting cage. And to compensate for your lack of teaching you get the pariah oft the softball world, the guest players. Instead of demanding and instituting a higher level of commitment on your team you take the short cuts. But in reality your goal really was not to instruct and develop this young girls. Your main goal was for your daughter and the other kids of the coaches to shine and be top dog. Bat 3rd play infield. Never replaced or never played any other position. Your reasoning is that since you put in the "hard work" you can do what you seem fit. But it is for the betterment of you and you only.
So you sir a quintessential Daddy Ball coach in the full sense of the word.

TOXOWIFEY is MADDDDD!!!! You just summed up that your kid and her momma approved- teammates get special treatment. Theyíre not out on a Friday night because no one asks them and that burns your [***censored***]. Try to rationalize it to make yourself feel better. Sad losers like their mommas. They earned their spots on that team by talking back to the coach aka daddy on the field and treating others like [***censored***]. Monkey see, monkey do. Great life lessons!!!

all these long island teams looking for players in the winter is hysterical
if you dont have a strong team
train your players over the winter !!

bluefire now intensity
li heat
cougars
pro game
flash
etc

stop making new teams you idiots

teams like yours have watered down the age groups in this sport so bad
its a shame there are a small handful of talented players spread throught these teams that pretend to know what theyre doing
especially at the older ages (14u and up)
