Baseball Coaches Survey Question Responses: What was the worst excuse you ever heard from a parent?

The Baseball 2Day Coaching Journal did a survey of active youth baseball coaches. Here is a sample of one question's responses.

What was the worst excuse you ever heard from a parent?

"I can't get my son to any games or practices because I'm pregnant."

"My son doesn't like playing 3rd base because he says the balls come to him too fast."

"You should play the 12 year olds the entire game, they've earned that right."

Couldnt have their kid at practice/game because:
1. father had the kid and didnt bring him back on time.
2. the game started late (8:00) and it was too late for a kid to be out!

"We didn't know if we had a game today."

This players parents couldn't come to one of his games, because they had to go to the casino.
