Another Thought on T-Ball...

Yes, patience is a virtue. Coaching t-ball reminded me of a scripture in the Bible...

My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,

James 1:19

This may come in handy when I think the umpire blows a call!

Things I have learned while coaching t-ball...

I have come to realize a few things while coaching t-ball this year...

  • Each player is in their own little world.

  • You get to see things that make you happy, smile, and make you laugh.

  • The coaches are more into it than the players.

  • A Homerun does not have to go that far.

  • Most of the time 5 runs is easier to get than 3 outs.

  • Players like to kick dirt.

  • Players like to give you "five."

  • Patience is a virtue.

  • Sometimes everything seems like it is in slow motion.

  • This is not the Major Leagues...even though we (coaches) treat it that way sometime.

But, no matter want to always make them (the players) feel like they won!
