CONGRATULATIONS CHAMPIONS!!!

 

MARPLE 2 - SENIORS     MEDIA - INTERMEDIATE

                         

A Message from the President:

Congratulations to our 2019 Champions Media in the Intermediate Division and Marple 2 in the Senior Division. I did get a chance to watch a few of the games and all players, coaches  and parents should be commended for their enthusiastic support, behavior  and sportsmanship. There are always issues in the playoffs with scheduling, players etc.,  but these coaches worked in the best interest of the league to get these games played in a timely manner. It is a successful season for all when most team played in the vicinity of 16 to 20 games over the course of 11 weeks.
 
Thank you to all coaches who put in endless hours not just on the field, but all the behind the scenes emails, text messages and financial contributions. It seemed like it was a bad year for frustration, mainly with the players simply not responding to availability. There were problems but there were also lessons learned and changes will be made. Because of your efforts over 300 young men were on a roster to play baseball this summer and continue the nearly 75 year old EDCO tradition.
 
Times change and the league has to change as well to keep up with today’s players who have many things in their life to entertain them. We will have a meeting on October 9th to discuss matters  while they are fresher in your minds. Some things that have been identified are as follows:
 
10 run rule later in game
 
Roster size and ability to add players at any time by a simple fax or scan(must meet playoff requirement)
 
Playoffs eligibility based on a percentage of games, example
        14 games x 40%
        14 x .40 = 5.6 or 6 games
        12 x .40 =4.8 or 5 games
        Whole numbers can also be rounded down if so decided
 
Suspensions for coaches tossed from game
 
Any suggestions you may have.
 
ONE BIG CHANGE I WOULD LIKE YOU TO THINK ABOUT OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS IS CHANGING THE LEAGUE NAME AS FOLLOWS:
 
Mid-County Baseball League
 
The league is no longer situated in the southeast corner of Delaware County. As a matter of fact all four corners are covered with Folcroft, Highland Park, Marple and Garnet Valley. The divisions would be set up as follows:
 
MID-COUNTY BASEBALL LEAGUE
 
Crossan Senior EDCO Division (26U)
Musser Junior EDCO Division (19U)
 
There will not be a junior division anytime soon as that age group has been eaten up by AAU, ECTB and other year round academy and travel ventures. Its simpler to have just a Senior and Junior division and do away with the Intermediate name. The original name of the Blue Route  in Delaware County was the Mid-County Expressway going as far back as 1929. The 2019 Seniors had four teams east of the Blue Route and 4 teams west of the Blue Route. There is value, tradition and respect of the past to keep the EDCO name alive in some manner. But, make no mistake the league has developed a reputation over the years (and I will try to be politically correct) as being disruptive and unfair. Perception is reality to many.
