What a shame

I think it's so sad to read all these negative posts on TOPIX, but most recently the ones regarding high school baseball. I don't care what school or team your son plays for, REMEMBER...they are kids and teenagers that you are talking about! For God sake, do you really want someone saying mean and hurtful things about your kids? Do you really have to mention some of these kids names? If you have an issue or dislike for a coach or parent, don't take it out on their kids or the team they coach; take it up with whoever you have the problem with person to person.

Although some of these boys hope to play college ball and perhaps beyond, a lot of them are playing to have fun. But because the parents are so competitive they are sucking that fun out of it.

Remember, there will always be someone better than your kid and someone worse. The professionals, who make millions of dollars STRIKE OUT, MAKE ERRORS, and LOSE!(sometimes by a lot, too!) That's part of the game. To make these boys feel like shit because they may have a bad game, or lose, is just so wrong. We are the adults who should be setting an example for our children to just go out there and do their best, and support them even when their best may not be good enough for us!
