Not all coaches are ok with the arrangement. Coach Stone of Buchannan Braves responded in the group chat:

If we had started playing Division 3 games since the inception of the National League, lets say a game per day starting at 3PM, by now we gone far. Remember, these are kids and they are in schools and need to prepare for Sunday and School on Saturday Morning. Besides, they help their parents with works in the house and yard especially Saturday morning. What time they will have to work, leave their houses to play Game at 9AM. This is totally unacceptable. VPT and ASG, please rethink this decision Immediately and get back to us as this has to do with us all and our children.

Are you in agreement with the coach? Lets know your thoughts in the comments below.
