Reply to "politics"

Well, here we are at the conclusion of the story. My son was cut today. He only cut two kids, my son, and a heavy set kid who can hit. He kept kids who are so bad, they will probably get hurt at some point in practice. It came down to politics, not ability. Yes perceived  attitude from players and parents has a tremendous effect, as I believe with everything in my soul that he was not cut because of ability. He is a pitcher, and was never allowed to try out for pitching. It’s a terrible end to a grueling struggle. For the last three years, he has had to endure this coach, and his favorites. People can say what they want, but politics are very real. My son had to learn today at 15 a hard lesson that life is not fair, and that giving your all, and hard work is not always enough. He worked hard this offseason, added about 5mph to his fastball, and was hitting beebees. Every travel team he tried out for he made easily. Not saint he is better than everyone else, he has his flaws but wow. I am heartbroken for him. A lesson to you young parents: don’t say anything to your kids coach, it will bite your in the ass.
