My son is a talented player, not just in his mommy's eyes, but many coaches both little league and private coaches have said he has a natural gift. His HS coach has played him 5 innings in 12 games. He is the only lefty pitcher on the team (sophomore). He has a few very dirty off speed pitches. His fastball is mid 70s. He can throw wherever he wants. He also is a very good outfielder and can play ss, 1st, 2nd despite being a lefty. He has speed and has uncanny proprioception. He has had 9 plate appearances and is batting 375 and an obp of 666. The coach has 12 kids that he plays. He will move them around but rarely do the other 10 kids on the team play. Today, when my son sat out his 5th game in a row, he asked his coach what he could do to get playing time and his coach said that the guys he's playing are his "rotation" for awhile. The coach just lost 3 games in a row in division to a comparable team but no one on our team could hit. Saturdays double header left 10+ stranded. I'm so frustrated my kid knows how to read the opposing team and find their weakness and get on base. After the coach stopped talking. My son told him, "I'm not a scrub, coach. I can help put a w up for you." Coach skoffed at him and said, "yeah, okay" and walked away. Is there anything I can do as a parent? The coach has threatened the team with running if a parent contacts him directly. I just want to know if he sees a weakness in my son's playing so we can get him the help he needs. Sorry for being so wordy. Thoughts?
