My son played Little League Baseball for a few years. His first coaches tried to teach the game, teach teamwork, and teach having fun. The last year the coaches were only concerned about winning, and it was no fun. I still think it was a coincidence that the first team just had bad players and were terrible, and the last team had better players and won more. An equal number from each ended up playing high school ball. I couldn’t have coached because I wouldn’t have cared about winning, and the parents wouldn’t stand for that.
