Local farms continue to serve community By Tim Slocum Some 200 years ago when streets Brooksvale, Cheshire and Cook were being settled, land that laid dormant for hundreds of years was awakened as fertile fields were laid out for farming. In time their bounty brought more settlers and ever since these carefully tended fields have continued to bear fruit. Today, the Cheshire Land Trust owns or has conservation easements on some of Cheshire’s earliest and longest surviving farms. Follow me on a quick tour of our farms. This story begins with CLT’s Brooksvale Farm Preserve on South Brooksvale Road, which has been con-

tinuously farmed by the same family (Jean McKee) since 1725. In recent years, hay and corn had been the principal crops but today, on tidy fields surrounded by neatly laid out stonewalls, these fields are now covered in a cornucopia of vegetables that are flourishing in its rich moist lowland soils. For the past few years Paul Zentek, who has a large farm on Higgins road, has planted and harvested pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, squash and sweet corn here. It seems that vegetables are a valuable cash crop and variety is the key. Giddings Farm along Boulder Road is another CLT See Farms / Page 7

Relay team has Hai hopes The Cheshire Citizen

(Leading up to Cheshire’s annual Relay for Life, The Cheshire Citizen is introducing several local teams that plan to participate. At this time, there are 50 teams and 450 participants signed up for this year’s event. This week meet individuals on a team from a local company.) The Hai Group has been involved in the Cheshire Relay for Life each year since the event began. Its team, “Hai Hopes” has grown to 33 members. Leslie Whitlock, assistant director for corporate and community events, made a connection with Relay for Life in its first year in Cheshire, in 1997. The Hai Group was small then, she said. “It was just 40-45 people.” She explained the company was in a new building, and the Relay was new, too. Plus, it was promoted as a team event. She thought the event was a perfect fit for the company. “That’s the key

to how I got interested in it, and it’s a great community service,” Whitlock said. She serves as team captain and also is a Relay chair this year. The team’s name, Hai Hopes, is a play on words from the song “High Hopes.” “The one about the ant and the rubber tree,” Whitlock said. After many years having its own team and its own tent, about six years ago, Whitlock agreed to join the committee on the Survivor Tent. “Survivors are very honored at the Relay,” Whitlock said. They receive special attention at the Relay and the Survivor Tent with meals, activities and gifts, as well as a ceremony of their own. “They should be treasured,” she said. Not long after, Whitlock found herself with more Hai Hopes team members who also wanted to help. Then came the opportunity to have the Hai Group as the new corporate sponsor for the Survivor Tent. “This company is extremely generous and ex-

The Hai Group in Cheshire sponsors the Relay for LIfe Survivors’ Tent and its company team, “Hai Hopes,” numbers approximately 35 members, and has been involved in the Relay since the first event in Cheshire in 1997. tremely supportive,” Whitlock said. It’s something that makes Whitlock proud. “So we, as our team, walk, do our little tent as Hai Hopes, but we also do all the events and make all gifts and do a lot of donations for the survivors,” she said. Whitlock’s co-worker, Regina Ceryak, is an integral member of Hai Hopes and the Survivors Tent and brings much enthusiasm to activi-

ties, Whitlock said. Ceryak, service desk coordinator for the company, packed 75 gift baskets for the Survivor’s Tent, sponsored by Hai Hopes. “You hope that it’s a little bit of sunshine for [each survivor] the rest of the year,” Ceryak said. Immediately upon joining the company, Ceryak signed on with the Hai Hopes Relay team as she had been part of at least a half-dozen Relays to

that point. Ceryak, alongside her father, had participated to honor her mother, Alice Byrne, a popular Chapman Elementary school teacher who died 11 years ago from breast cancer. Ceryak’s son and daughter also have been part of the Relay for Life events. “It’s great, cause it’s company, but it’s family. When we do these events it’s our work See Relay / Page 6

Police charge man with home burglary A Naugatuck man was arrested on the morning June 2 and accused of burglarizing a Peck Lane home. Daniel Deschaines, 26, of 77 Manors Ave., was charged with second-degree larceny and third-degree burglary in the incident, which was called in to police at about 10:25 a.m. Sgt. Donald Miller said responding officers found the man engaged in the alleged burglary, and he fled on foot. He was apprehended at the Econo Lodge on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike in Southington at about 10:50 p.m., Miller said. Deschaines was held on a $5,000 bond and appeared in Meriden Superior Court June 3. — Jeff Gebeau

family, and it’s our outside family all together,” Ceryak said. In all the years of being involved in Relay for Life, Whitlock’s daughter and son also helped when they were young. She never imagined cancer would find its way to them. “But it did happen, and it did hit very hard,” she said. Whitlock’s son, Mark, just 26 and a student in law school, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2008. He died a little more than year after the diagnosis.

“I was already immersed in the Relay, and then I also had a personal connection.” Mark was one of those honored at the 2011 Relay. Both Whitlock and her daughter find comfort in being with the others at the Relay. “I am very happy that I have the Relay to go to honor him. It was very difficult. It helps,” she said. Cheshire’s Relay for Life will be held at Cheshire High School on June 13-14. Donations, sponsorships, and luminary purchases are accepted at any time, including the day of the event.

conservation restricted farm property that is considerably smaller but nonetheless provides a cash crop of pumpkins and corn for a tenant farmer who operates a stand elsewhere in town. Owner Bob Giddings tends to some egg laying chickens and cultivates flowers and vegetables for his own consumption. He is also a volunteer at the neighboring Friends of Boulder Knoll farm. The “Friends” have a few acres cultivated at the former Lassen Farm. Lassen’s farm was Cheshire’s last large dairy farm, once big consumers of corn and hay. Thanks to the generosity of local taxpayers this townowned land is protected from development but large agricultural pursuits have not taken place there. Along rural Coleman Road one encounters the Leavenworth Tree Farm. Earlier this year the well-known tree farm became a CLT protected property with restrictions placed on its future development by an agreement with the Leavenworth family. It is hoped that the tree farm will continue long into the future. Time will tell but in the meantime the property will never become a subdivision to the delight of CLT members and the surrounding neighbors. My story ends with a drive along Cheshire Street, which has been dominated by Ives Farm since 1867. It can be said that it is Betty Ives who put the Land Trust in the farming business full time. And no, members aren’t doing the cultivating but we are tending its largest property and one of the largest active farm properties in Cheshire. The Ives and Pelz farms combine cover 177 acres

along both sides of Cheshire Street. Over 60 acres are cultivated for hay and vegetables that include a variety of peppers, tomatoes, squash, eggplant, sweet corn and pumpkins. Ives is farmed by Joe and Michael Arisco of T&D Growers. They are in their third year on the farm and we couldn’t be happier. Straight trucks leave daily during the late summer months loaded with vegetables destined for Bozzuto’s, Cheshire largest taxpayer and one of the state’s largest grocery wholesalers. T&D also maintains a retail stand on the property, which is visited by hundreds of area patrons every week. This spring strawberries were picked to the delight of family’s that spent the late days of May picking these delicious strawberries. Farms survive and thrive all across Cheshire. This bounty can be had by anyone in town. Support your local farmers. Visit your favorite vegetable and fruit stand this fall and throughout the year. Your local grocers also sell native locally grown fruit and vegetables. We are blessed to still have this rich bounty and we have local framers to thank for that. We also have donors and members of the Cheshire Land Trust to thank. Through our collective efforts we are helping our local farmers to thrive because we know…No Farms, No Food.

The first 100 carloads will get in for the Southington resident price of $10. Non-residents typically pay $15 a carload. The movie “Ice Age” will be playing that night. “The whole goal of the CT open house day is to showcase all the different amenities and venues we have in our state,” Miceli said. “We at the Southington Drive-in believe we have one of the most interesting and unique venues in the state. We definitely wanted to be a part of this statewide celebratory event.” Barnes Museum curator Marie Secondo said the museum will be offering free admission for tours of the facility. The Barnes family built the house in 1836 and it was donated to the town by Brad-

ley Barnes in 1973. Three generations of the Barnes family lived in the 17-room house until Bradley Barnes , the grandson of Amon Bradley, donated it. Items owned by the family are on display year-round, including diary entries family members kept starting in the early 1800s. “We’re featuring the gardens because June is a wonderful time and we’ve really enhanced our gardens a lot. So we’re trying to highlight the garden and have people not only visit the inside, but we encourage them to walk around the grounds and see the roses in bloom,” Secondo said. “Roses… are indicative of the time period. Bradley Barnes would have had the same kinds of rose bushes.” Normal admission to the Barnes Museum is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for students, and children under five are free. The museum is also participating in Blue Star Museums, giving free admisSee Museums / Page 9

Flag Day is June 14 Flag Day is June 14. Several Veterans organizations have scheduled ceremonies to properly retire unserviceable American Flags. Our Nation’s Flag has seen many faces, but, here are a few things that may be useful to know: After declaring America’s independence in 1776, our new nation was still largely unsettled. A variety of flags were flown that were typically homemade and reflective of the region where they flew. Our new nation needed a uniform flag to assist our country continue its momentum and unify the people. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act: “Resolved: that the flag of the United States be made of 13 stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be 13 stars, white

with a blue field, representing a new constellation.” After Vermont and Kentucky were admitted to the union, Congress passed the second Flag Act of 1794, which stated that by May 1795, the flag should have 15 stripes and 15 stars. This flag flew over Fort McHenry in 1814. The third Flag Act of 1818 reduced the number of stripes to its original 13 and ordered that a new star would be added for each new state. Again, there were no instructions on how the stars should be placed, so flag makers placed them in a 11 Crown St. Meriden, CT 06450 Reporter – Jeff Gebeau Features – Joy VanderLek News Editor – Olivia L.

variety of patterns (circleslines-one large star). In 1912, by executive order, President William Taft declared that the stars should be in six horizontal rows and that a single point of each star should be pointed upward. On Jan 3, 1959, with the addition of Alaska, the 49th state, President Eisenhower ordered the stars to be set in seven rows of seven stars, staggered horizontally and vertically. Just eight mounts later when Hawaii joined the union, Eisenhower directed a new arrangement for the flag in which five horizontal rows of six stars would alternate with four staggered rows of five stars. This flag remains the one that flies today. Submitted by John W. Hackett, USAF, Ret. Post Commander, American Legion Post 68

happy situation. Because the Town of Cheshire usually has spare pens available, occasionally Waterbury pound sends animals for a quick vacation in the suburbs. Often these animals were collected for roaming in the city, fighting, biting, or other bad behavior. Sometimes the Waterbury pound is in quarantine because of disease like Parvo and we are their place of choice until it is safe for animals to return. It’s part of regular cooperation between Cheshire and Waterbury police departments that extends to other things besides dogs. We are just being good neighbors. The people who work at the Cheshire Animal Shelter are all animal lovers and nobody wants to see any of the dogs “put down”. April says they always find homes for the local dogs that end up there. In the 16 years since she has been working at the pound a healthy dog put to sleep unless has never been put to sleep unless mean or otherwise dangerous. She never gives up on a dog and makes friends with even the most unpromising animals. I suspect she would take them home herself rather than see anything happen to them. Besides looking after pound

residents, April and Fred are on call for the wild creatures of Cheshire. Town residents call them with requests for help when a raccoon, skunk, or other animal turns up in their neighborhood behaving strangely. Unfortunately, these animals are usually too far gone by the time someone notices them and they have to be put down before they hurt or infect another animal or a human. A few weeks ago I noticed four or five turkey vultures hanging out in trees in my backyard. It was the first time I seen these rather daunting-looking creatures and I wondered what was up. It turned out that there was a skunk on its last legs and the birds were waiting for their next meal. I called Animal Control and out came April, the first time she and I met. She snared the skunk and disposed of it in my front yard, while a member of the Cheshire Police force stood by to see everything was done according to the rules. We should be grateful to have this dedicated group taking care of the wildlife and domesticated pets helping to make the town a safe and caring environment for them. See Pound / Page 15

Nothing Cheshire can do except move on

Heartbreaking 14-inning loss brings season to abrupt end

6-0 halftime lead melts, but not wholly; Rams advance to semifinals

By Ken Lipshez

Special to The Citizen

CHESHIRE — The June 3 Class LL second-round baseball game between Cheshire and Glastonbury fits the definition of instant classic like a batting glove. Their regular season records were an identical 14-6, but Glastonbury was seeded eighth and Cheshire ninth, their destinies separated “by lot,” as the CIAC explains it. What it amounts to is that the teams were equal through the first three tiebreakers, so the ranking is determined by “drawing straws, computer-style,” as tournament director Fred Balsamo put it. Thus, the Tomahawks got the home game, and few will dispute the thought that the home team gains a sizable advantage in extra innings. Glastonbury capitalized on that advantage by pushing across a run in the 14th inning for a 6-5 victory. The Tomahawks advanced to meet Amity in the quarterfinals and were bested, 7-0. The Rams’ season is over as a result of an infield hit, an errant throw, advancement from second to third on a fly ball and a soft two-out line drive into right field off the bat of Chris Pulia. What can Cheshire coach Bill Mrowka possibly say to 19 sets of eyes, red and swollen by tears, looking to him to make some sort of sense out of it? Mrowka doesn’t claim to be a psychologist, and even the best of them would be stretched to perform such a task at a moment’s notice. Having a day to think about it didn’t help much.

SIMSBURY — It takes seconds to score in lacrosse. Maybe not literally the blink of an eye, but in the grand scheme of things, it happens that fast. That’s why, with No. 7 Cheshire leading No. 2 Simsbury 6-0 at half and then 8-1 with 20 minutes left in the game, it was clear the June 5 CIAC Class L quarterfinal girls lacrosse match was long from decided. “There was never a point where I felt comfortable,” Rams head coach Dan Warburton said. He was right to feel that way. Simsbury cut the lead to 9-8 with five minutes to go, but couldn’t score the equalizer as Cheshire (13-5) won by that count to advance to Tuesday’s semifinals, where they faced perennial powerhouse and defending champ Darien Darien, the No. 3 seed, advanced by whipping No. 6 Newtown, 20-5. Affairs were much tighter in Simsbury. After what turned out to be the Trojans’ final goal, Warburton called a timeout, imploring his team to hold on for five more minutes. “He said, ‘We have a lot of time to rest on the bus if we just go 100 percent right now,’” senior captain Maddy Levy related. “I think we did a pretty good job of just staying together at that point.” The Rams gained possession and all but accomplished the stall the rest of the way. “I think that we did a nice See Sometimes / Page 22

lected the final six outs and the defending Class LL champions (23-0) were on their way to another final four. “This is a huge win for us,” Southington first-year coach Davina Hernandez said. “They are a phenomenal team. We knew this was going to be an extremely hard game. They have great hitters, one through nine. This is the type of tournament game you want to coach in. Both teams came up with a run and then we had a clutch hit.” The showdown between bordering towns had a state championship feel. Both teams were vocal in their dugouts and on the field. Friedt and Cheshire junior MacKenzie Juodaitis were also sharp in the circle. The Rams hurler relented first in the second inning. Natalie Wadolowski and Friedt led off the home half of the frame with back-to-back singles. Hayley Arduini then dropped a bunt single between the first baseman and the pitcher that rolled almost into the outfield grass as Wadolowski’s pinch-runner, Michelle Woodruff, touched the plate for the first run. Juodaitis did well to limit the damage to one. She in-

without a hit. Casey Harding walked to start the inning. After a fly out and a sacrifice bunt, she stood at second base with two outs. Sarah Como then grounded to shortstop and Wadolowski couldn’t handle Sydney Ferrante’s throw. Harding scored on the error to tie the game. The Rams kept the pressure going in top of the fifth with a triple to the left-field fence by Bry McIntosh. Olivia Odermatt walked to put runners on the corners, but Friedt induced a come-backer to end the inning. Paterson started the decisive bottom of the fifth with a one-out single. She was sacrificed to second by Lauren Zazzaro. Ferrante then drew a walk on four pitches, setting the stage for Dube. The senior catcher grounded one up the middle just under second baseman Maggie O’Reilly’s glove. “From the first inning she was on the ball,” Hernandez

Everybody was drained: the players, the spectators and the coaches.” The bottom line from a strictly baseball perspective was the Cheshire bats didn’t produce. Much of the credit goes to Glastonbury’s sophomore left-hander Chris Mastromarino, who pitched 9 2/3 innings in relief, allowed just

two hits and struck out eight. “He had us off-balance,” Mrowka said. “I thought there was no way he would beat us, but he did.” The Rams squandered their share of baserunners in the late innings of regulation. But from the ninth inning on, Mastromarino didn’t allow a single safety. Cheshire trailed 2-1 before scoring four times in the fifth. Matt Hickey walked and Tommy Savino (2-for-6) reached on a bunt single. Wes Robertson (2-for-5, walk, HBP) hit the first of three one-out RBI singles. Dan Schock and Cooper Mrowka had the others. Adam vonFischer’s walk forced in another run, but the

Rams left the sacks full. Glastonbury rallied to tie it in the sixth, setting the stage for the long, scoreless siege. Cheshire starter Ethan Lonardelli pitched nine innings and yielded five runs, only two of which were earned. He walked three and struck out five. Liam Davey pitched 4 2/3 frames in relief and gave up three hits and three walks while fanning four. The telltale run was unearned. The seniors — Robertson, Schock, Lonardelli, Hickey and Kyle Waldron — have to move on without a chance for redemption. Schock does finish tied with Coach Mrowka atop Cheshire’s all-time home run list at 11.

Key underclassmen like Cooper Mrowka, Ryan Pierpont, Davey, Savino and vonFischer will return. All Coach Mrowka can do now is look to the future and hope that a moment of pain will be balanced by moments of joy in 2015. “The seniors had good ca-

reers,” he said. “The other kids have to learn from it and grow from it. “Sports sometimes offer a teaching moment. We have to learn from it. We’ll have exit interviews ... and talk about what the situation may be for next year.”

Notes 8-5 opening-round win over Samantha Bevivino and AbiDesai and Yomari Mercado gail Geda of Bristol Eastern. 8-2, then fell to No. 8 Jessica They advanced and lost to Levine and Alyssa Lyon of South Windsor’s sixth-seeded combination of Stephanie Joel Barlow 8-3.

job getting control of the ball and getting it down [towards goal] like we hadn’t,” Warburton explained. “Then I thought we did a beautiful job of working the ball and getting time off the clock.” But with 16 seconds left, Simsbury (14-2) gained control. That was plenty of time. The Trojans, after all, had scored three goals in a 40-second span earlier in the second half. “When the ball was loose, I turned and looked at the clock and knew there was

enough time for them to get down the field,” said a relieved Warburton. Simsbury goalie MacKenzie DuBois looked to make a quick outlet pass. Levy had other ideas. She instinctively stepped in front, made the interception and sealed the game. “I kind of figured that since there wasn’t a lot of time left they were going to try and get the ball up as quickly as possible, so she was probably going to make a longer pass,” Levy said of the final play. “In front of me, I saw two players. One of my players was [covering one] so I went to

the person over to my right and I guess in the time that she was open for the goalie saw her and passed her the ball, so I just ind of stepped in front.” “It was a big play from a senior captain,” said her head coach. The game tipped heavily towards Cheshire early, as Simsbury struggled in the opening 25 minutes to the tune of a 6-0 halftime deficit. “We tend to be a second-half team, but this was one of our worst first halves,” Simsbury coach Kim Rabbitt said. “That was pretty surpris-

a goal and three assists. Goalie Alexa Carbone made 11 saves. As for Darien (16-2) on Tuesday, Warburton said, “Obviously, they’re a great team, but you play the game for a reason and we’ll give it everything we have and see what happens.”

said. “We kept hitting right at people. The pitch before she got the hit I told her to crowd the plate a little bit and she did and poked it right up the middle.” Dube said her hit was a pleasant surprise. “It was a great feeling,” Dube said. “I was confident once we had the lead. I had confidence in Kendra and the rest of the team. We were extra fired up for this game because they are five minutes away and we never play them.” On Dube’s base hit, Odermatt charged the ball well from center field and fired a throw just up the third base line to catcher Megan Hodgdon. Paterson, however, was able to elude the tag and put the Knights up 2-1. Juodaitis took the loss. She yielded eight hits, walked two and struck out one. “We really battled, but they came out on top,” the Cheshire pitcher said. “It wasn’t my best day. We all wanted this so bad and it was right there, but we battled.” Friedt was on top of her game. She scattered three hits, three walks allowed one unearned run and struck out 12. “They would be on pitch and then, the next pitch, they would miss by six inches,” Hernandez said. “She can’t get six, seven, eight, nine,

10 strikeouts against a great team, but she did and she did it with a lot of fire. That glove was popping. I like when she gets mad sometimes because she throws even harder.” Friedt said she was ready for a challenge on Friday. “Cheshire has been our rival in every other sport and we never played them before,” Friedt said. “I think I was throwing harder than normal because of the team we were playing and this being the quarterfinals. I knew we had to win. That’s probably the best hitting team I have faced all year.” Cheshire coach Kristine Drust said she wasn’t happy with the scoreboard at the end of the game, but she wasn’t upset with the effort her team gave. “It took us a little too long to adjust to (Friedt),” Drust said. “All five of my seniors have unbelievable qualities and built a foundation for this team. The most important thing a team has to have is respect and loyalty. If you don’t have that, you have nothing. Our seniors have kept that motto all year. They have made a huge impact and have left a legacy here.” McIntosh, Alexa Dileo, Alyssa Hajjar, Courtney Goggin and Anisa Chaudhry finished their Cheshire careers on Friday.

Is Legion ball striking out? By Jim Bransfield

Special to The Citizen

It’s also the reason why the Legion in Connecticut has instituted a prep division, for eighth and ninth graders. The idea here is, obviously, get ‘em early. The underlying concern may be the reason that the National Legion has gone to pool play for its World Series. Pool play is one in which the Series is divided into two four team divisions and the two winners play a title game. The reason? ESPNU will televise the title game, but only if the game is on a date certain. Double elimination makes that impossible. TV rules. Pool play has the potential to be enormously unfair. A team can come out of pool one at 3-0, and another team can come out of pool two at 2-2, winning a bunch of silly tiebreakers (runs scored, earned runs given up, ad nauseam). Then in one game, the 2-2 team can beat the unbeaten team and call itself champion. Double elimination? Forget it. But the game will be on TV, which means exposure, which means -- the Legion hopes -- more kids wanting to play Legion ball. Maybe this concern is the reason for the utterly phony attendance figures that come out of Shelby, N.C., the permanent home of the World Series. Briefly put, the Legion counts a doubleheader crowd twice. If the attendance for a twin bill is 4,000, the Legion says 8,000. That means that when I went to five games last year, there were 10 of me. The Legion said that attendance at the World Series last year was 107,000. There were nine admissions in a 6,500 seat stadium. Ask your third grader to do the math. About the only tournament left that is a pure championship event is the regional tournament. Eight teams, double elimination, one winner. Neat, clean, right. Too bad the state Legion and the World Series aren’t played the same way.

The Cheshire Community Chorus treated patients and their families at the Highlands Healthcare Center with a afternoon musical concert, recently. The chorus is led by conductor Lisa Zolkiewicz-Ives and accompanied by Julianne Boucher on piano. Songs included popular, contemporary selections, including music from Disney films. | Joy VanderLek \ The Cheshire Citizen

Amateur baseball fans are paying attention to the high school baseball tournament, and rightly so. The twoweek event culminates with championship games June 13 and 14 at Palmer Field in Middletown. But at the same time, American Legion baseball is beginning and that season is a frenetic, six-week dash to the elongated state tournament and the Northeast Regional Tournament in Middletown, which the locals call the Home Office for Amateur Baseball in Connecticut. Legion ball finds itself in a continuing struggle with other summer baseball leagues. It bills itself as the finest teenage program in the country, and in many ways that’s true. But in Connecticut and in other places around the nation, Legion ball is struggling. The number of teams is shrinking. In Connecticut alone, the program is down three or four teams, and Zone 3, the league in which Berlin and Cheshire play, is down to eight teams as Madison has folded its tent. The response by the state Legion has been to tinker with its state tournament format. Every year the state commission comes up with something new. This year, the top 40 teams -- five from each of the eight zones -will qualify for the postseason. The zone champions will get a bye until there are only eight survivors from the first couple of single elimination rounds and in order for a zone champion to be eliminated, it would have to be beaten twice. Then there will be eight survivors who will play in two regionals -- Torrington and Stamford -- in a double elimination format. Then the two survivors will play a best of three. It’s too long and too convoluted for the average fan to keep up with. It’s too con-

voluted for me, and I think I get it. One of the reasons the state Legion allows so many teams in is based on an assumption that unless teams have something to play for, kids will lose interest and teams will fold before the season ends, presenting the state with the headache of dealing with forfeits. Methinks that assumption is shaky at best because it underestimates kids. Almost always, the teams that have forfeited games -- and they are very few in number -- have done so for internal reasons. Oftentimes the coaching is, well, let’s just say is inexperienced. There are not clear rules at the beginning of the season about commitment, a team begins the season with a small number of players, and so it goes. Almost always, it’s shaky management at the local level. But it has been my experience in involvement with Legion baseball since 1966 that kids hang in there. Kids don’t quit because a team is 10-15. Kids generally like to play. Study after study has shown that kids would rather be playing, even if a team is losing, than sit on a bench when a team is winning. Another reason is that having 40 teams in the field creates more fan interest. Not so. In the years since the expanding playoffs were instituted in all its mutations, early round games draw mom, dad, friends and relatives. It isn’t until the final rounds are played that crowds get bigger. But with the competition from other programs, the Legion is deeply concerned about the future of its program. That helps to explain why the National Legion backed off its plan to reduce the maximum age of players from 19 to 18. Small towns across the country protested, saying this further diminished its talent pool.
