Guilty Confession - 05/20/14
I must confess, I've got a thing for my son's baseball coach. He's tall, handsome, athletic, a great pitcher and a former college ball player. He's also my husband.
I love watching him coach. We made it to the semi finals after an exciting win last night and I'm convinced it's due in large part to his coaching philosophy. Yes, these boys have raw talent...a lot of it... but their coach is more focused on having fun and teaching the fundamentals at this age than he is on making sure they're scholarship ready at age 8.
We're not the underdogs by any stretch of the imagination, but we aren't #1 either. We're somewhere in the healthy middle. So, our coach made his mantra known before game one yesterday. He told the boys--- go out there and 'shock the world.' And of course, have fun doing it.
Semifinals are tonight. Win or lose, our boys have learned an immeasurable amount about baseball and life from a man of integrity.
