Title IX, which revolutionized women’s sports, is often blamed for the demise of some men’s sports.
The University of Richmond is ending its men’s soccer team and the athletic director blames Title IX, the 1972 federal act that sparked a revolution in women’s sports by providing basic parity with men’s sports. That hit home for two reasons: First, because Sean Baker, a Salisbury High School soccer star with whom my older son played, is now on the Richmond squad and will lose his team. Second, because I owe a lot to Title IX. When my son found out Baker – an outstanding player and a terrific young man – would have to end his college soccer career or transfer, he was outraged. He said simply: “Sean Baker not playing soccer? That’s a crime.” And it is. Anybody who plays with as much joy and drive and talent as Baker ought to have a …

Tournament is designed for recreational players.
