Baseball - As Little League starts tournament play, remember what's important

For the last several years I have spent part of my summer at my local Little League, volunteering my time during the tournament play season.

As a former Little Leaguer myself, you could almost say I live vicariously through these young individuals as they step into the batter’s box and take their places on the mound. The joy and fun that many of these kids exude has kept me coming back each season.

Yet, there’s always been one thing that has left a bad taste in my mouth when game time rolls around: adults who take each and every game too seriously.
