  1. Sounds like a great honor for this young man and he should be proud as well as his parents.
    I think having all Americans at ages like this is just crazy. Its another thing that is wrong with our youth sports today. Just let these kids have fun and enjoy the game. The added pressures of things like this are not what the game is supposed to be at this age. I have been coaching for 30 years and it changes every year and it changes mostly because of the adults running these things and making big $. I’m sure it is very exciting for the young man and his family , my opinion it is way too early for this kind of stuff.

  2. Sports said it right. I’m sure the young man is excited and he’s a good ballplayer. The problem is when men get together and create these All American teams. My son plays college sports and I can tell you with confidence, college coaches don’t care about those teams because daddy ball is gone at the college level. College coaches want wins and they want their players to graduate.

  3. The kid is young and he and his family are having fun and enjoying the early parts of his baseball journey. That’s all that matters here. If the family and the young man are enjoying the ride, that is the plus.

    It is hard to compare college and high school thoughts toward this because this is just a bunch of kids having fun and playing baseball and getting some pub/press and having fun with it..

    It is hard for the so-called experts to evaluate all of this unless they are the actual parents or coaches of these teams..

    This can be a good thing if the kids are learning good things about the game along the way…You know, good sound fundamentals and proper game skills…

    The kids will learn the proper humility when that right time comes and I remember back when Alan Ashkinazy was coaching a bunch of young teams like this one and he would take teams to Orlando with kids like Trevor Clemmons, Caleb Webster, the Robinson Brothers and others so those teams and the kids and families had fun with it and all of those kids turned out to be OK in their later baseball lives…Scott Clemmons coached some of those kids too…

    It can be a good thing, you have to learn to appreciate it now and never take opportunities like this one for granted…

    Back in the day, Austin Moyer from the Pleasant Garden Community Center was the HR Phenom and did a good job later on with Southeast Guilford HS and in College…

    It can be a real good thing, it depends on how slice it and appreciate it…
