You have to walk before you can run. Again, I am very competitive and don't necessarily believe in participation trophies. But you can't do it that early. There's a reason why there aren't many basketball leagues (if any) at that age.
It doesnít have to be competitive but if you have a game you need to keep score. If we are talking wee ball (should be outlawed IMO) then thatís a different story maybe. T ball you should be keeping score.

Games without scores arenít games.

I don't know what wee ball is. It's pointless to keep score when everyone runs the bases.

Not really sure this discussion merits anymore time. At the time, my son didn't really seem to care about a score. Now that he's 7 and watches sports, it's a different story.

Iím just of the opinion you have to keep score. Even if nobody cares who wins.

Youíre right though. Not really a worthy topic for a lengthy discussion.

Wee ball is the work of the devil. If you donít know consider yourself blessed.

All 10 players we had were already hitting in the original lineup
So subbing out wasn't an option. Well the other coach wouldnt budge on the rule and the kids dad made him hit even though he was crying and Could barely walk to home plate.

I gave that coach the worst ass chewing anyone has had in a long time telling him his winning is the only thing coaching was an embarrassment to youth sports. Oh and we won anyway. Still pisses me off.
dang good story...kinda sad the way adults can screw up a kid's good time...good on ya...

GBO!

Great work by CTV. I hear he is going to have some bojangles gift cards as well he is going to give away. He is buying all the lemonade , all the pizza and the tickets for the weekend. Hopefully there is a big crowd to support him. I think he is getting the rookie coach treatment by the league. I donít see other coaches getting that suspension I have never seen a coach stop arguing as soon as he is ejected.
