I think one thing we should all remember is that this is our place as parents to vent. I'm not sure any of us should be (or want to be) judged completely by what we say on this web site. Being the parent of a baseball player — pitcher or position — is rough. We all need a safe space to share our concerns and frustrations and this is it.
Our jobs are rough enough, we need to cut each other a break.
This is so true..... my sons four years of playing in HS were very disappointing. I can remember numerous times starting a post here to vent and then deleting it. I’m an x- high school basketball coach and the reason l’m an x-coach....... I despised parents. This should be a place to vent.
