Baseball, A Story Without Scandal or Steriods
Two years ago, I gave up baseball. It was plagued with cheaters, steroids, and bad decisions. I stopped watching it, I stopped supporting it, I even stopped supporting MLB products. Last month I received a phone call.
The local PeeWee league president called, telling me that there was no coach for my cousin’s PeeWee team and the team would be killed, and he’d be put on another team. I always wanted to coach, I knew the logistics and the game very well, and always wanted to be the man to make the decisions that could win or lose the game. With no employment, I had the time; did I have the dedication? After some thinking I called the league president back and told him I’d take over the team. I recieved my team’s equipment, shirts, hats, picture forms, and roster and went to work.
PeeWee baseball is played by 6, 7, and 8 year-olds after finishing a year at the T-Ball level. It’s not exactly professional all-star baseball, but it’s a start.
At this point, most other teams have been practicing for weeks. Also, after looking at our roster I can see that we have all 7-year-old first-year players. Compared to the other teams, that’s a huge disadvantage.
It seems everything is against us, younger kids, less practice time, yellow jerseys!
