Reply to "One Middle School Baseball Experience"

MS games are not high quality but I loved them. They enable many kids to have the chance to represent their school before the time comes when most won't make their HS team. The pride that comes with representing your school, plus the camaraderie with being part of the team, are super important for early teen development. I loved cheering for every kid, and especially the ones who may have only had 1 hit all year. The excitement from those kids when they finally break through in this very difficult game is often bigger than the travel ball players' umpteenth RBI double.  It's also an important opportunity for that travel ball player to develop his leadership skills and help his classmates.   Lastly, the extra practice time for my kids was a plus benefit.   Can never stop working on things wherever you are!
