Overheard in an After Game Chat recently:

A  grandfather had come to watch and support his granddaughter play a rep game of fastpitch.  As he was leaving the park and buoyed by the 17 to 0 victory that his daughter’s team had just handed to a younger team, he happened to overhear the winless coach trying to put the game into perspective for her young players, “That is how ball is suppose to be played. They hit, caught and out threw us and you will be doing just the same next season…..” The grandfather, impressed by the coach’s attitude, smiled at the thought that his granddaughter had been in that very same place the previous year.

A BIG thank you to all the great coaches who support and inspire kids to become great players and also great people!
