Apples, oranges, and carrots.  

DuBois LL: They're 12.   Plus, it's a mix of kids that will eventually go to different high schools.

DuBois HS:  Some of those awesome little leaguers peaked in little league or stopped playing the game.  Also, we live in a day and age where teenagers are unwilling to work for something.  They believe in instant gratification and that things should be given to them.  When that doesn't work out, they give up and look to place blame.  Most popular blame is "the coach".

PSUD:  Most of their players are from outside DASD and DuBois Little League.

I agree totally with the analysis of the kids.

You need one great pitcher to win a state championship in high school softball and two for baseball.

Shower's is not big enough for Minor League baseball.  Independent league, maybe.  Calliari is a decent coach, not sure he or anyone on his staff is ready for professional baseball.  There is a current minor league manager that lives in DuBois: http://www.milb.com/roster/index.jsp?sid=t485  Maybe he could help get something going.

you may never have witnessed Gamey Shower`s Labor Day tourney ?? it was littered with big league  and minor league players , mostly over the hill but good hitters none the less , and the field was made bigger since then .  whom does  the resident from the city manage . the link provides no clue !

No clue?  Ever use the internets before?  It's a roster, from the Texas Rangers A level team in North Carolina.  Yeah, I heard about that Labor Day Tournament.  Having a team located in DuBois and a holiday tournament are two greatly different things.

A team would be nice. But you would need an owner willing to spend  support money.  There are only a handful of people in the area that could support this. And for how long. Especially with teams in state College and Altoona and Erie. We dont have the population base.

Are you implying that Sam MCDowell could not pitch well on Labor Day , or Satchell Paige  either.........and Sam Jethro wasn`t able to hit on a holiday as well as locals whom threw 95 mph plus ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,surely you jest , it was a classy tourney that could be repeated with that venue.........and a class A team could survive here and will no doubt do just that sooner than later..................keep criticising all the time Ko ka  , as you are AAA all star  , or is this another with dual id`s on here ? ...
