Word has it that Major League Baseball is ready to crack down on teams having their kids in the dugouts, saying that the sideshow in the San Francisco Giants dugout was an embarrassing display that served to make MLB look unprofessional.

I've got to agree with Car Salesman Bud on this one. I understand St. Louis having Darryl Kile's kid in the dugout. I mean, COME ON! His dad died! But Dusty and company took it WAY too far. It's a dugout, not a daycare center. Leave the kids in the skybox or in the stands. And for those who disagree with me, look at the near-disaster in Game 6. Dusty Baker should be thanking the man upstairs that his little munchkin didn't get clobbered at the plate.

Ah, I miss Sid. So much endless material.

I have to agree on this one. There should be only 2 batboys or batgirls and they need to be at least of an age (10 or so/) where they know what to do and when to do it. Darren Baker is 3 1/2 years old. I have a 3 year old and there's now way she would be anywhere near that kind of scene!

I understand why they wanted Dusty wanted his kids down there - so they could share in something they might not get this close to again - but they probably shouldn't have been the true batboys. Maybe if you made them honorary and didn't allow them to leave...

Of course, then you run into the problem of putting a 3-year old into a group of spitting, cussing adults, and I dont't think I need to say that's not too bright, either.

I watched very little of the World Series but when I saw the kids in the dugout I was disgusted. Let the kids sit with their moms, they have no business being in the dugout.

Selig should have pulled the kids out of there after the Darren Baker mess.

All it takes is one of these kids to take a foul ball in the head while in the dugout...

I think the solution to this is pretty obvious. Of course(in usual Bud Selig fashion)MLB let it get way out of hand before deciding to do anything about it.

I think the age for kids should be more like 12 maybe even 14 or older. Not only should they be old enough to behave and know when to and not to run out on the field. But they also need to be old enough to be able to react to things like foul balls coming at their face.

Damn. MLB sure likes to "crack down" on things, don't they? Too bad most of the "problems" aren't problems until Seligs crusty old ass says they are.
