Our Children Become the Messages They Hear the Most

Picture the young baseball player stepping onto the mound in the final inning of the championship game. What is he thinking in that moment?

Think of the basketball player, standing on the free throw line needing to make two free throws to send the game into overtime. Is he thinking about making the shots, or worried about missing them?

Each of these athletes has a voice in his head, a voice telling him he is strong enough, he is calm enough, he is brave enough, you ARE enough for this moment.

Or, that voice may be saying something completely different. That he is not enough. That he is not prepared. That he chokes in big moments. Who determines what that voice is saying?

We do. Read more.....

 
Nomar Garciaparra’s Views on Specialization

Nomar Garciaparra has added his name to the list of high-profile athletes to speak out against young athletes specializing in just one sport.

The six-time All-Star who played in the majors from 1996 to 2009 says specialization is a real problem in youth sports, and now he is working with the Los Angeles Dodgers to open new training centers. They focus on developing not just strong baseball players but great overall athletes.

As someone with deep ties to baseball, Garciaparra sees over-specialization as a problem particularly in baseball, noting the increase in injuries among young players. The rise in Tommy John surgeries among athletes between 15 and 19 years old is a major red flag, for example. Read More.....

 
Exploring the Various Divisions of Little League®

Any community, anywhere in the world can belong to Little League®. Volunteers are the fabric and substance of the program and those same people make their Little League what they want it to be.

Each year, your local league's Board of Directors decides what divisions and how many teams it will charter based on the ages and total number of players registered to play. For just $10, any Little League can add a team or create a new division in their league.

Children as young as four can begin in Little League Tee Ball. Those same children, with the support of their parents and the league's leadership, can remain in the program all the way through the age of 16 if the league chooses to charter at least one team in each division. Read More....

 
My Outburst Embarrassed Everyone

I was all fired up as I sat in the third-base bleachers behind our dugout. I didn't think the opposing manager was playing fair. My son's manager would give signs to the catcher, who would then relay what pitch to throw. The opposing manager would then yell a comment to the hitter. When our manager called a fastball, the other manager would yell "quick bat." When a change-up was called, he'd yell "keep your weight back." I watched it all game, and complained to a few other parents. They didn't seem to believe me or care. One father pointed out that manager was yelling other things like "nothing high," "protect the plate," "wait for your pitch." It didn't matter. I was convinced he was stealing signs.

In the fourth inning, their pitcher hit two straight batters. My son was up next. A fastball nicked his elbow. The opposing manager called time, and walked to the mound. When he didn't make a pitching change, I yelled, "He has to come out! That's the rule!" My wife told me to be quiet. "That's the rule!" I yelled again. The manager looked over at me before he went in the dugout. Our manager was coaching third base. He turned around, and said, "John, it's not a rule. Relax." Read More......
