Sportsmanship at Naamans

 

History credits Henry Chadwick, New York sportswriter and member of the inaugural class of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, with the creation of the first modern box score in 1859. That box score included a space to track errors.

This sport we've chosen for our children is one that openly acknowledges that some failures result from errors - a play we should have made, execution normally well within our grasp, that eludes us.

Let's keep that in mind when we interact as a League. At Naamans, the players aren't the only ones that commit errors, but they are the most likely to learn from how the adults respond to errors.

Umpires will blow calls. As instant reply and pitch-tracker systems make clear, MLB umpires, professionals working in four-man teams, err all the time.

Coaches will lose track of substitutions and short a kid innings, let their competitiveness get the better of them at times, and fall short on team communications, just to mention a few of their many opportunities to err.

League administration will double-book practice fields, fail to return an email promptly (if at all), and miss a requested teammate pairing or two at the lower levels.

And umpires, coaches, administrators, and parents, as hard as we try to remember that errors are part of the game, will sometimes still lose our temper and react as we wish we hadn't.

What do we want to hear teammates say to a player after an error? Do we want them to rebuke the player in anger, or say "that's alright, we know you'll get it next time, we've got your back, we'll pick you up"?
