The Five Little League Commandments

It’s play-off season in Little League and I am bursting at the seams with pride for my son, Jack! He puts so much effort into the game and practicing. He seems to really love it! It struck me this week as I was watching a play-off game how competitive some of the parents are. It made me think of a sign that has been posted at various Little League fields around the country and customized for each state.

This week, one parent stormed off the field because he didn’t agree with a coach’s decision. I was appalled and felt sorry for the coach, who was just trying to do his best.

Let’s remember, folks, our children mimic our behavior so think about that the next time you are tempted to lose your cool at a game. It is, after all, just a game and games are supposed to be fun.

Here is a link to an article about this sign.
