And by the way, my 12 year old's coaches, and the parents of the other kids, have been absolutely great, pulling for (and helping) each other's kids. It has been a joy.
Our league (shout out to South Lexington Youth Baseball) also has great parents and coaches (both of which I represent), but I there are a few other local leagues that I won't name here that could use some self-policing.
I would rather be at these games than watch any game at GABP. I just hope that time slows down a little for me so that I can cherish the "younger years" while it truly is still a game. My son played five games
last Saturday at a tournament and--even that--went by way too fast for me!
