Kids and their parents.

I have a unique situation that I thought I would ask the board about. It deals with kids and sports and its a tough subject to talk about. Probably small town dumb stuff, but I am being serious. We live in a small town and have a small high school, but recently voted to consolidate with another school that we have been whole grade sharing for about ten years. Anyway enough babbling. Here is what I need advice on. There is a person in our town that has decided to put together a traveling little league team. It involves 1-3 grades. Like I said we live in a fairly small town. Anyway they have chosen 2 kids from my sons class. He is in 1st grade. My son did not get chosen. The coaches son and probably the best athlete in the class got chosen. I am cool with that, but my son came home and said that he is not good enough to play with the little league team. They are in 1st fukn grade. I would help coach if I could but Spring/Summer is my busy time. I coach the little kids wrestling program in the winter. I am going to sound like another parent, but my son is a pretty good athlete. Essentially the coach hand picked 2 kids without any sort of try out or reasoning. My wife is absolutely livid. She was an all state pitcher and led her team to the state tournament as a freshman. She coached little league in her home town for 5 years. What should we do??

Keep our yaps shut??
Confront the coach??
Start another team??
Crack a beer and laugh it off??
Jump into an aids tree while drinking antifreeze??

I have already made up my mind, but want to see what the planet thinks.

This.

Consider yourself saved. Play locally. No more than 20ish games per year. If he gets into high school and is really good, then consider a traveling team. Anything before this is silly.

kind of sounds like there might be enough of a good reason to start another team.
Good luck.

First grade? They're just now becoming proficient at opening their own milk cartons and still have trouble buttoning sweaters and zipping jackets. Take your boy out back for some whiffle ball and look into the travel team somewhere down the road.

Why in the hell would you want to put a first grader on a traveling baseball team? Thats just nuts. Hell, its nuts to even have a traveling baseball team for that age.

Teach your kid the keylock and when his kid is in wrestling have your boy break the shoulder he throws with and when his dad confronts you tell him why.

Guy sounds like an asshole. I'd be glad my kid doesn't have to deal with his asshole antics. Still, I might ask him "Hey asshole, where was the tryout?"

Shit! You guys are old and out of date. I was umpiring competitive softball 8 yo's and that shits insane. By 12 there was this one little pitcher that walked with her throwing shoulder higher than the other (kinda lopsided).

Shit can get insane so if his son wants to play comp baseball who are yall to shun it.
Anyways dude... I don't know what I'd do in my situation. I'd probably talk to the coach to inquire about the team if it's the ONLY team in town.

When I was 1st grade, my mother knew I was one of the better players on this really good team but the coach put me in right field and rotated on the bench every other inning. I guess he didn't see what we knew. Anyways, after seeing enough after a couple of games she walked me off the field in the middle of one of the games and I switched teams to one of the worst teams in the league. Instantly we were the 2nd best team in the league and eventually that coach and every coach in the league tried recruiting me every year after that to come to their team as I was probably the best player in the league at that age (not tooting my own horn either. Straight facts in my opinion !).

Basically, have him play on another team if you can and if your son is as good as he says he is then people will notice. If not, then maybe the guy was right.

Look at it as a chance to build some character in the boy... Lifes not full of hand outs... He has to earn it. Here's your chance to see if he has the determination to be great or if he just wanted on the team for social hour.

It should be his choice through hard work practice and determination... Not yours.
You'll know his choice by his actions without being on the team. Will he shrug it off after the dust settles or try to get better by himself or by requesting your assistance.
