Claremont Youth Sports Outsources

A reader alerted us to the above sign posted by Claremont Fastpitch in UPLAND on a fence by the pump house at the corner of Baseline and Benson. Did we mention this is in UPLAND?

Apparently this Claremont girls softball league can't fill its slots with the young girls in Claremont, and has to outsource out of town in UPLAND. Our guess is that the league is trying for the housing tracts to the northeast of that interesection which must be rich with kids, unlike Claremont which, as Money magazine has so well pointed out, is aging in place.

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and this image, contradicting as it does the City mantra of how the sports facilities in Claremont are for Claremont residents, speaks volumes.

If you are looking for the sign, it is in UPLAND, at the southeast corner of Baseline and Benson, facing Benson. It's in UPLAND.

(The sign was up as of today, 7/18/07. We make no warranty as to how long it will remain in its current location in UPLAND.)
