Your son just went 4 for 4 or threw a no hitter. You probably have a good conversation after the game...Right? Always good to see the parent/son relationships grow after a ball game. That conversation is NOT the important one. The conversation that’s important is the one you have with him after he went 0 for 4 with 3 K...or... as a pitcher he got shelled in the first inning, was pulled before the inning was over, and got stuck with the loss. What do you say then? Don’t cop out and say “He wants to be left alone.” If that be the case, then you probably said the WRONG thing the last time that happened.
