Little League Coach

Back To Humor

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old baseball players aside and asked, “Do you understand what cooperation is?  What a team is?”

The little boy nodded yes.

“Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team?”

The little boy nodded yes.

So,” the coach continued, “I’m sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn’t argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a _____. Do you understand all that?

Again the little boy nodded yes.

He continued, “And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it’s not good sportsmanship to call your coach a ‘dumb _____’ is it?”

Again the little boy nodded yes.

“Good,” said the coach. “Now go over there and explain all that to your mother”.
