Give me that kids number. Iím gonna tell him about travel ball and find some coaches to call on him. If you have any extra money put away, go ahead and start digging it up. New glove, bats (unbelievable what they cost), tournament fees, over night stays, etc!!! Heíll have the time of his young life though!

Lefty. Relief. Pitcher. Embrace it, think of what a future contract will be worth in 15 years.

I loved playing little league in my youth. Then some coaches found out I was left handed. Most pitcher back then couldn't pitch to lefties, and most hitters couldn't hit off lefties. So of course I got beaned and walked A LOT. I also could throw a mean slider that would fool most hitters. So they wanted me for their travel teams. I started hating baseball. I told my dad after my third year I wasn't going back there was no joy in it any more.

Then I had a kid of my own. He loved baseball and was a good relief pitcher. He got on a travel team. All that was, was an excuse for the kids to go play baseball, the dads to go watch the games and practice with the kids, and for the womenfolk to sit around drinking their wines and flavored beers while flirting with the 18 yr old life guards at the hotel pool.

I think we figured out we spent about $4000 on hotel, entry and other fees one summer.

I still love watching little league. It's more fun now that I don't have a kid playing and don't have all the pressure.

Savell I know it doesn't seem like it now but at some point those youngins will be up and out on their own and lets just face it, you are raising them to be confident so they will handle most of life's hurdles well on their own. At that point you and the wife will have to figure out what to do with all your time and the left over money in your bank account. It is a rough adjustment but I am makin it myself right now.

There's nothing like watching your boy stand in left field checking out the dandelions or butterflies as the ball dribbles past him. There were times I wanted to throttle him but he eventually came around. Never missed a game or a practice if I could help it. Loved almost every minute of it.

Man I can't catch a break with this crowd. Date a few redheads and a spicy lil Latino lady and you never hear the end of it.

Savell knows a good kid will run him ragged and he is puttin together a collection of those lil things LOL.

You are screwed....
My boys were the same. Then it was road trips to tournament... Weekend of ball
Sure cut into the fishing. And the scholarships suck.
Make sure you try football next. We did two of three on full ride.....

At least you didnít get sucked into coaching. Iím coaching mine and the all star team right now. The skeeters in the town where we practice are off the chain. I think I saw one siphoning gas out of an 18 wheel rig. And it was standing flat footed.

I would encourage and support him to play.
It was years ago but I had a cousin that was a good ball player in school and signed a contract with the St. Louis Cardinals straight out of high school.
He didn't have an agent, just a good coach that got him exposure. He played short stop and second base down in Florida in the minors but broke his knee in the middle of his second year,
That ended any chance of a career for him.
One good thing was that when they signed him straight out of high school his contract called for them to pay for his college to get a degree, no matter what happened.

Good luck Jesse..
