Coaches Behaving Badly! How To Avoid This

By Stephen K Reynolds

Just the other night we had a game and 2nd or 3rd inning the other coach who was at 3rd base and there was a cal at home where the batter went around on a pitch that he was trying to get out of away of. the umpire called a strike and the coach at 3rd immediately started to Question the call! the umpire told him that he called a strike and then the coach kept asking him why.

The manger for our team said you can't intimidate the umpire and then they started to get into it!
Shortly thereafter our manager told the guy to shut up and then it was out of hand. the field umpire that was an adult came in and told both of them to chill.

Later the Board President showed up then at the end of the game when everyone shakes hands the guy wouldn't shake our hands I said to the guy "you can't be serious" I was then asked to go and talk to our team. Other board members arrives and they talked for another 15 minutes.

My point is this: Stay cool don't keep asking the Umpire hoping he'll change the call! thats what the guy was trying to do! Our manager shouldn't have fired back either. Its a little league game for crying out loud. Coaching little league Youth baseball requires you to be an adult at all time! The players need to see better role models than this!

If you can't keep it in perspective then you need to get out of youth baseball coaching! This is about the players not the adults.

Hey remember to have fun and enjoy this great game!
