Guys & Gals - I have been a lurker on this site for years, have posted a few times, but mostly have been the recipient of some great posts.
Tomorrow is the last day of tryouts and my 2012 son is not very confident he will make the cut. He is telling me this is the worst tryout he has ever had and I am quite honestly nearly heartbroken for him.
He has been practicing with his 16u travel team all winter, has done extremely well working on his game, been in the cages 3 times a week and working with his hitting coach the past 2 months.
Cuts are tomorrow, unfortunately he tells me he is not hitting well at tryouts and is not very happy about things at the moment. He is usually hitting hard grounders or line drives, but cannot get into a groove in these tryouts.
I am trying very hard to stay positive and tell him it does not matter to me one bit if he gets cut - as long as he gave his best effort that is all he can do - but it is still killing me to think of the possibility he will be done with HS baseball.
Anyways, just wanted to vent. Maybe tomorrow I can come back and post a positive message saying all the angst was for naught and he made it! I really hope so...
Good luck to everyone.
