Reply to "Heres to You Mr High School Baseball Watcher!"

I was scouting a middle school game at a tournament once and heard a good one. There was a team playing I had never seen before so I was standing over close to their dug out taking notes and eaves dropping a little. 2 dad's were talking close enough to the dugout that the coaches could hear. One dad was going on and on about the batting order. "I don't understand why he is batting 8th! 8th? Really? In travel ball he always batted at the top! I just can't figure out why!" It was obvious he was being loud enough for the coach to hear on purpose. Finally the coach had had enough and turns around and yells, "I'll tell you why your son is batting 8th! It's because he's to darn good to be batting 9th!" I almost choked on my seeds when he said it.
