It's a very sad day for Sandusky Little League Baseball when the city wants to implement a new policy of screening volunteers who use city parks.

Sometime we must see if the new policy is going to cause more harm than good to coaches who have been there for our children with 30 or 40 years of volunteered time. It's time to take a close look at the policy, because when people of their caliber want to leave, something is wrong.

On a job when you do 30 years, the company gives you a gold watch.

I can remember when I first started, these coached took me under their wings. They showed me the dos and don'ts of Little League Baseball.

I understand we don't want molesters or any kind of predators around our children. Character is hard to find these days, so why risk the children not learning from people of character?

Please don't deprive the children of Little League Baseball.
