I coached little league baseball and softball off and on for about 12 years when my kids were playing. Some of the best times with my kids in that role.
A couple of weeks ago, my son told me that grandson Kellen is playing this year. He was going to start last year, but the season was canceled because of the Wuhan Chinese Virus AKA Kung Flu AKA Flu Manchu.
At any rate, he’s playing this year and my son is coaching…family tradition and all that. The problem is that in addition to that, he’s working and going to school for his Master’s Degree. He has classes on Monday nights and can’t be there for little league practice…so I’m going to be the fallback, pick Kellen up on Mondays and stand in as coach during those Monday practices.
This is going to be fun.
Two of the three older grandkids got into communist football (AKA soccer) rather than America’s pastime, and the third plays field hockey; so this is the first opportunity I’ve had to enjoy this. There are still three more grandkids not yet at the age to decide what athletic endeavors they want to pursue so here’s hoping for the future.
