WAIT.........250.00 for allstars is apart from the the regular fees for registration........with only the parents getting back 200.00...so the FIFTY DOLLARS you say is for 16 games hat/shirt/etc...is incorrect...you are making it sound it cost only 50.00 dollars for the regular season......bottom line Ive heard many parents complain about the 250.00 pay and play all stars program...
please reconsider this fee......its going to get ugly.....especially when the board considers non payment of 250.00 on a case by case basis.....the league does not need this.. just read your all stars forms......kids are not required to play and parents must participate or ???? fill in the blanks.....dont punish the many for the few because the board does not want to enforce their own rules.........stop being nice to parents who are idiots and because the league thinks their kid well help all stars.....the board has done good since the old board members left....you guys are at a crossroads....dont go back...eliminate this 250.00 requirement to play all stars.....

Yes, it is just as Player Agent, Mike

Hernandez has stated. We need a bit of an incentive to the pull the parents off the bench and get their help. The All-Star experience is a great time for the players... why not make it fun for the parents too and get them involved. The $200 collected as an all-star deposit will be returned as the commitment is fulfilled.$50 for an entire season in itself (jersey, hat, 16 + games, tournament registration) is a pretty fair deal in my opinion.

I can see that there is a lot of misunderstanding on this issue. The LMBA Board wrestled with this and had a lot of discussion on the proposal. We want the members of LMBA to understand it as we intended for it to be and we will be discussing it with them through the season. We've communicated it to the Spring 2012 Managers at meetings this week who now understand our philosophy behind the allstar deposit and were in agreement that it needed to be communicated clearly to ease the anxiety. It really isn't all that you are making it seem. If you have concerns or, specific questions, I welcome you to contact any one of our Board members directly. We're always available to answer the questions you have. Our league members will hear about it directly from us. Managing concerns on Topix doesn't seem to be the most effective means of communicating clearly.
