Make baseball participation for your child and others a positive experience and remember that a child is easily affected by outside influences.
Be kind to your child's coach and to the umpires. The coach is a volunteer-giving of personal time and money to provide a recreational activity for your child. The coach is providing a valuable community service. Without the coach, your child could not participate.
Parents should be cheerleaders. Applaud good plays by your team AND by members of the opposing team. Allow the coach to coach, the umpire to officiate, and most of all allow your child to play the game.
Between the excitement of the winner and the disappointment of the loser, we have the umpire. All of them follow the same creed to call the game to the best of their ability. Please do not openly question their judgment, and never their honesty. They are a symbol of fair play, integrity and sportsmanship.
Accept the results of each game, and encourage your child to: Be gracious in victory, and turn defeat to victory by working towards improvement.
