Last but not least Glenn would really like to see Kaua'i give the county manager style of Government a chance.

AJA Baseball league continues discriminatory practice
|Mr. Mickens is locally known|
as one of Kauai county's
For me, NO person who is capable of playing baseball should be prohibited from playing, particularly using race as an excuse for the exclusion.
I do commend AJA for keeping baseball going on Kauai since there are no other organized leagues here but why not open it to anyone with the talent---like the big leagues who are stronger today than they ever were by allowing African-Americans to play and any other nationality that can compete at that level.
As you know I was honored and privileged to have played with Jackie Robinson and once he broke the color line baseball became a far more competitive sport.
I can only see AJA baseball becoming the same and, for me, it is wrong to see the doors not swing open to everyone who has the talent to play.
AJA discriminates but that isn't against law
