Treating my child as a second class citizen

I am so tired of watching my son dissolve into tears when he realizes that he really isn't considered good enough to play equally, when he sees that he is at the bottom of the batting order AGAIN, that he is punished for missing a practice even when his father is in the hospital.
In our town, we seem to have a real problem with the coaching in our little league and it has started to get a bit of press in the local paper. I am actually thinking of writing a column and submitting it to one of the news magazines.
Mainly, I wanted to say thank you; you've pulled me out of my despair for today; but also, do you have any ideas about directions I could go to obtain more information about this perspective on youth sports? Thank you again.--
