Little League Coaching

Darwin was right
At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside
And asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"

"Yes, coach", replied the little boy. "

Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?"

The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue,
curse the umpire, or call him an a$$hole. Do you understand all that?"

Again, the little boy nodded in the affirmative.

The coach continued, "And when I take you out of the game so that another boy gets a chance to play,
it's not a dumb-a$$ decision or that the coach is a shirthead is it?"

"No, coach."

"Good", said the coach. "Now go over there and explain all that to your grandmother.”

"Yes Coach, she's my grandmother, but she's your Mom.
