I Pushed My Son to Play Little League® Past His Enjoyment

My son was such a cute, little Tee Baller. He loved going out there and running around. I loved watching him and taking photos. It was just so adorable.

Then, all the sudden, he was in the Minor Divisions. He still liked the game, but it became clear that he wasn't going to be a standout baseball player. He started getting frustrated because he wasn't as talented on the field as some of his friends that he had been playing with for the past few years.

My son is a quirky, intellectual kid, who would gladly stay in his bedroom on his computer or tablet all day long. But, he still loved the game, even though his heart might not have been in playing it. So, we continued to sign him up. It's what you do. You play Little League. When he got drafted to a Major Division team, he was excited, but hesitant because he knew he wasn't as strong a player. Read more.....

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 GarciaparraÔÇÖs 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.....
