it's all good my man, i played soccer until high school and i was very competitive. my older cusin ref'd a game and almost had to boot me. soccer to me is different and scores should be kept at an earlier age. just like football basketball and others but baseball is a slow sport and kids lose interest pretty quickly epescially if they know they are losing every game. you have to think about the health of the league over the individual & they need to learn to game. it's introduced at the t-ball level, if you've ever seen a t-ball game you know darn well there is not a lot of fundamentals being learned there. 7-8 is the age group that starts really learning the game. you start having live pitching, balls and strikes are called. out are recorded. we tried to still have a tourney at the end but the parents were total dipcraps and cal ripken kind of told us to stop as they would rather we not have any at that age. again, by 9yrs old it's time to crank it up. too many parents think real sports should have levels like a video game where they can choose how hard the game will be for their kid instead of letting them develope at their own rate.
