Will anything be good enough?

The Bellefonte school board, in its infinite wisdom, has not renewed the contract of baseball coach Jeremy Rellinger. This after the team won the District 6 AAA title last season.

The general consensus is that kids of certain people of power and whining parents didn’t see enough playing time.

I have umpired several of Bellefonte’s games. Coach Rellinger and his assistant, Jack Schuster, were always the epitome of coaching. If criticism of a player was needed it was always done constructively and quietly.

After one game, I was halfway to my car when coach Rellinger hailed me from behind and, with a handshake, said, “I didn’t catch you coming off the field. Good game. Thanks for coming out today.”

I guess teaching good sportsmanship and winning championships isn’t good enough in Bellefonte.

I know the new coach, Dan Fravel, is highly qualified, but will he suffer the same fate?
