Reminder To All Involved In Youth Baseball

He/She is just a little boy or girl.

He or she stands at the plate with his or her heart pounding fast. The bases are loaded; the die has been cast.

His or her parents can't help him or her; he or she stands all alone, a hit at this moment would send his or her team home. The ball nears the plate, he or she swings and he or she misses. There's a groan from the stands, with some loud boos and hisses. A father's voice cries, "Strike out this bum!" The batters eyes fill, (is this game fun?)

He/She is just a little boy or girl, who stands all alone, and at times like this he would rather be home. So open your heart and give him a break, for its moments like this, an adult you can make. Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget. He/She is just a little boy or girl and not a man or woman yet!
