Adults are always saying "let's find ways to get our kids involved" in activities and supply them with positive things to do. Athletics is only one way to do it. But a lot of times the support for those activities lacks. In San Diego you don't see any kind of crowds at high school sports events outside of football. Granted there are the Padres, San Diego State, UCSD, University of San Diego, several community colleges, and who knows how many high schools where sports fans can go. But in Ketchikan.... need I say more.
In umpiring Little League and
High School baseball here in San Diego, baseball crowds were
very sparse. But in Ketchikan where "things to do"
are limited, why not head to Norman Walker Field and watch some
good baseball. Believe me, those kids are on a level overall
where they could compete very well with the talents from even
San Diego. That's been proven in San Bernadino at the Little
League Western Regionals. Give the kids your support. Believe
me, they'll notice.
