Diamond Quote: "Most games are lost, not won." Casey Stengal

Career Over? Parental MUST READ Baseball careers are ending every single night, in 2009 an anonymous parent sent this treasure to DP. To view 'A Baseball Parent's Farewell', click here.

dp logo1Do's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
