Competitive Baseball

As a mom the last thing you want is for your kids to be sad or hurt. This last weekend I experienced how competive Tball is at Logan's level. Keep in mind that these kids are 5 and 6 years old and that for some this is their first season in the league that actually keeps scores and where you actually can get out.

The rules in this league state that each child gets 3 attempts to hit off the coach's pitch and then 2 swings at the Tee. If the child misses then he is out. Well Logan was the first kid on the team for that to happen to. The coach on the other team starts yelling, "He's out! He's out!" as he runs onto the field. Poor Logan was upset that he didn't hit but to hear that coming from the coach was just awful. That's why there are umpires and what poor sportsmanship that coach is showing his team.

Luckily Logan has a good coach who said he doesn't care if they lose all their games this season because the kids will be better players than when the season started.
