Can’t You Read The Sign?


Last night I noticed this new sign hanging on the baseball field fence. A nice sentiment to which I added my own jaded-eye edits just for fun:

“I’m a kid, but my parents think I am the next Bryce Harper.”

“It’s just a game that I like to play for fun, but my parents expect me to win every time.”

“My coach is a volunteer, so if you think you can do it better than him – you should try it.”

“If you see something you don’t like, you should volunteer to help. But don’t expect that will guarantee your kid more playing time or a spot on the All-Star team.”

“The officials are human, and they are also possibly semi-flaky teenagers doing this for the first time.”

“No one will be making the Varsity Team today, especially if you annoy us kids so much that we quit playing by the time we are 13.”

“And no scholarships will be handed out today – or, keep it real – ever.”

“Please don’t embarrass me or yourself today. Again.”

    Great sign, and statements! I’m disappointed I’m not coach this season, but am extremely happy with the coaches Brian has here in Kentucky.

    Excellent additions. Too many parents miss the real meaning of what sports can do for kids, while they try to live their dreams through the children.
