With great anticipation, all our coaches, players and fans are entering the final weeks of our Fall Ball season, including the OYO Tournament. The excitement and enthusiasm are on the rise. This is the time of year where teams can showcase what they have learned on the ballfield but also where coaches and parents can teach many life lessons.
Know Your Part – And Approach It Positively
How we handle ourselves when we interact with players, fans, opposing teams and umpires — and how we manage our fans when they get excited over a call or play — is critical. It will make all the difference between positive memories and life lessons that will have these young baseball and softball players continue playing for years to come or that will scare them away from a game they have truly enjoyed during the rec season.
So, what’s your role? Umpires umpire, coaches coach, players play, and fans cheer.
