Play Ball - Keeping Perspective

“Youth sports have the potential to offer great benefits to your child, but it's up to you to make sure they have a fair chance by keeping your perspective that baseball is just a game.”


(WLL) -- Sports can bring out competitiveness in everyone. It can be easy to get caught up in the game and become emotional, especially when your kid is the one in a high-pressure situation like being the batter in the final inning with two outs, runner on third, and it's a tied game.

Parents often take great pride in their children's athletic success when for example, their child gets a hit in this situation, but too often also show negative emotion when their child strikes out. If your athlete's success is linked to your self-esteem as a parent, or maybe if you have high hopes for your child to play at higher levels, then emotional reactions can creep in and become more likely to happen. 

At the end of the day, baseball is just a game, it's supposed to be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved. In a year, it won't matter if someone made an error in the second inning of today's game.

Youth sports have the potential to offer great benefits to your child, but it's up to you to make sure they have a safe environment to participate in this wonderful game. It's not the end-all-be-all, and it definitely isn't your child's job or profession! By keeping the perspective that little league baseball is just games that offers a place for your child to grow then you can stay on track. Youth sports also offer the parent an opportunity to grow as a mentors to your child, so take those moments to build up you kid and encourage your kid when they fall short. Enjoy the game and the benefits, no one is getting paid, yet...
