You know what? I don’t even care about spring any more. Keep this crappy weather going until June and I’ll save money on lawn care and time on cancelled little league games. Okay, maybe that’s the sleet talking.
I ended up coaching a little league team my son is not on, big mistake. I got Joe Kerrigan(ed) yesterday while doing a pitching change, my assistant reversed my changes by putting the pitcher I just yanked back on the mound while I was reporting the change to the other team and umpire. The pitcher was crying, pouting, and having fits of rage I was pulling him for attitude and plus the four walks in a row. I ask my assistant why he did that “The kid needs to bulldog it.” This isn’t the movies dickhead you got the kids dad ready to kill the kid on how he is acting and performing out there and I could get kicked out of the game for this move. I told the umpire and other teams coach “My idiot assistant just reversed all the changes I just reported to you. Without causing a scene its 10-0 we are losing if we comeback and you protest I will back up that we messed up.” This morning, I basically resigned
Not sure how old your kids are but wait until they are done playing and you look back on some of the lunacy that we all had to put up with.
