Behave With Upcoming Baseball Season

It is SO GREAT to see teams out practicing as warmer weather approaches and baseball season moves closer. (Not that I’m counting, but my St. Louis Cardinals open against the Pirates in just 12 days!).

As we move toward practice and games, let’s remember to show a little respect for one another. Having coached baseball teams for many years, I know it can be difficult to find field space. It’s frustrating when you go to a field early and it’s full!

If you reach a field that’s occupied already, consult with the coaches of the other teams and see if you can work out an arrangement to share the infield/outfield. Most coaches are willing to cooperate and share the field. Certainly, 30 or 45-minute increments can be implemented to share the facilities.

Be a good sport and cooperatively work with other teams to share the fields available in our communities. Everyone faces this difficulty and it’s best to try and work through it together!
