  • Select Baseball vs HS Football

    So several nephews have completed a season of select travel baseball. All age ranges pretty much. Zero reports of Da Rona taking any of them down or even sick. All tournaments were played once the Governor allowed it and the kids did not wear masks playing in tournaments in both TX and LA.
    Can we take this sample of real life activity and push it over the the brain trust at the UIL and say see, kids really don’t die from it.
    Let them play.
    If you think a bunch of 7-11 year olds are practicing social distancing, I lol at that.

    Travel ball is up to 18 U and those all went off without any issues but easier to distance player in baseball as opposed to football

        We just finished 2.5 months full bore with one kid doing baseball tournaments 3/4 weekends month and a different kid doing basketball tournaments 2/4 weekends a month. Almost all of those were full day Saturday and at least half day Sunday, tournaments mostly all over DFW. No kids or family members on the teams came down with Rona. No masks except for the last two basketball tournaments, no distancing ever. Baseball team practiced 2-3 times a week, basketball 2 times a week. Poo poo the sample size all you want... we were around people A LOT and all families still healthy as can be.

        We taking kids’ senior years away from them???

          Son has been playing soccer 4-5 times a week since they were allowed and there has been zilch. Ironically, I JUST got a note that a player's sister tested positive. No word on anyone else in the family yet. They are skipping the scrimmage tonight though.

            7v7 for the last 6 weeks. The last tournament had probably 60 teams. Haven’t heard of a single positive test

              Let’s look at MLB. Yep some players have tested positive. Let’s check back in 2 weeks and see how many of them are back on the field. I’m guessing most if not all will be back on the field after having Da Rona. They won’t be dropping dead. Again, they don’t fit the demographic of high risk.

                My first business with 65 employees is fully open and no cases, been opened back up since May 1. Been in hotspots working VERY closely with the virus, all employees and families healthy.

                Second business open with 3-400 customers in the doors per week, no cases, been opened back up since May 1.

                Some masks, no distancing(can’t really with our work)


                Strangely enough, 2 employees who chose to leave (for Unemployment benefits, we won’t be bringing them back) who are freaked out by it and have been isolated entirely, both got the virus. Recovered now.

                  And, their families aren't dying either.

                    They tested positive for the antibodies. Just like you would for any virus you had.

                    My kid finished summer baseball, too, and nobody got sick or tested positive. Summer conditioning for middle school and high school and zero cases. 10,000 employees at my job and zero cases as well. ZERO.

                        Queue up coach Ritch from Desoto and BWGoobers. Ritch will copy the link to an article from some rag like the NW Slimes and goobers will copy/paste some mega Graph with 14 paragraphs of jiberish and then we’ll get his “stay the course and keep masking up for just a little bit longer” BS narrative.

                          Anecdotal evidence is great, but it is not the whole story. It doesn’t have to be this way though, we can be rational about it. The schools are opening, let's see how it goes.

                            Is there really any doubt how it will go, though? Some kids are going to attend school and be sick and it will be pandemonium. That will somehow be seen as a "win" in some circles.

                              How's that?
