Playoffs Start Thursday - Giants vs. Braves in Game 1
It’s playoff time and competition ratchets up a notch. This is competitive baseball, however, we must all remember this is a game played by kids not professional ballplayers. Now it is especially important for the proper perspective and appropriate behavior by all of us – parents, coaches, volunteers and players. Coaches, players and umpires all make mistakes. It’s part of the game and expecting 100 percent perfection by anyone is not reality.
The mission of our league is to instill life skills including good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, respect and a sense of teamwork within the context of baseball. Support your coaches, cheer on your players and respect the umpires.
Play hard, play fair and have fun!
