After 15 years, hundreds of games & practices, and hours upon hours of effort, we have arrived at the era of high school baseball for both of my boys.
Baseball has been the soundtrack to my life for as long as I can remember. The sounds of the game floated through my Grandmother’s house on a transistor radio. You could hear the sounds of a neighborhood game being played in the streets. Practices and games were their own symphonies.
Now that my boys are in high school and not playing some kind of games every single weekend, I have some Saturdays and Sundays that don’t revolve around sports.
What makes kids super athletes? It’s not only their physical attributes, but in fact, their mental abilities are just as important, if not more so.
I already know this is going to be a controversial topic. There will be women commenting that it’s not them who gossip about other people’s kids, other parents on the team, or coaches, and I know it’s probably not most moms.

At a recent baseball game I was sitting with some other families in the bleachers. My son was up to bat and I said softly, “Get a touchdown Drew.” One of the moms elbowed me and said, “Umm, you know we’re at a baseball game, right?” I had no idea what I had said until I replayed it in my head.
There’s nothing I hate more than being cold. Nothing. So I will prepare myself with every gadget and gizmo the world offers, for warmth at my kids’ outdoor sporting events even if I look like I’m going to the Arctic. Yes, they’ll tease me, but who will be laughing last when they’re freezing at the night game and I’m toasty warm?
