Fewer locals at N-Trip

As great as it is to see Niagara Falls’ Matt Clingersmith take the Niagara County Community College baseball team to new heights, it’s odd to see few or no locals in the starting lineup each day.

Is it N-Trip’s goal to be a national power, or to give local kids an outlet to play?

The vision of the athletics department continues to shift and while I appreciate the ambition, I’m not sure it fulfills the college’s true purpose.

Even if the Trailblazers become world-beaters, they’ll never be a big draw.

But giving local kids a chance to hone their skills and possibly move on to four-year schools carves a much-needed niche in Niagara County.
