Parents shocked to find out little league championship does not come with many perks

Leonard and Natalie Kennedy signed up their son Tyler for the Scottsdale seven-year-old boys basketball league with higher hopes. When Tyler was assigned to one of the top teams in the league, they expected a bigger payoff.

Tyler and his seven year old teammates make up the Scottsdale Spongebobs that just completed an incredible 8-1 season. The season ended with a miraculous comeback victory over their arch-rival, the Pinnacle Teen Titans in the championship game. The Spongebobs overcame a six point deficit to top the Teen Titans at the buzzer by a score of 21-20.

Yet, following the big victory, the Kennedys were disappointed to find out that the only benefit to winning the league championship was a small trophy for each player.

“We did everything that was expected of us as little league parents. We yelled at the officials, we cursed at the coaches, we made signs and t-shirts with Tyler’s face on them.” said Natalie. “We thought that maybe there would be a college scholarship for Tyler, or perhaps some sort of shoe deal. All he got was a stupid trophy and a pizza party.”

Spongebobs head coach Mark Rowland tried to explain. “Parents are getting crazier every year. The Kennedys liked to berate me for most of the game for not getting Tyler more three-point shots. He’s a nice enough kid, but he can barely make a layup.”

And while the Kennedys are now looking into possibly attaining a lawyer to help them recover what they claim are damages, the Spongebobs players seemed content.

“We went for pizza and I mixed all the sodas into my cup! And next week we don’t have a basketball game!” shouted Tyler.

His father disagreed.

“What kind of lessons are we teaching these kids?” asked Leonard Kennedy. “That sports are fun? This is business and it’s big business, and we want our slice of the pie.”
