This is the key thing here. If he's not listening to that guy, he's certainly not going to take advice from you or anyone else. If anything, the suggestions he's already received have just hardened his resolve to... well, be hard-headed, I guess.
So unless his crimes rise above "the team's not as good as it should be and my daughter's playing out of position," then yeah, just tough it out, make the most of practice etc. Especially if it's 10U rec league, that first year of kid-pitch is kind of ugly anyway.
