This was fun, instructive and poignant. Sometimes I laughed at the story. Sometimes Matt’s commentary was extremely helpful, like always. Sometimes the letter written made me sad for the state of Youth sports but it always brought me back to center, knowing there are voices in baseball like Coach Lisle.
Thanks to your Dad, you for getting it to paper and others who got it out to us.
I’ve coached HS or youth baseball since 1984. These stories resonated with me as a coach. But to be honest it was also helpful for some self examination as a parent of three female athletes.
