Looking outside at the blowing snow it looks like Old Man Winter is making sure we don't get too cocky about an easy Winter. However, last night I got a huge taste of Spring Fever when I attended a manager's meeting for the Glendale Little League. I could almost smell springtime as we discussed upcoming tryouts, practice schedules and various groundrules.
Last year I helped coach my son's Little League team for the first time and what a wonderful experience. The most fulfulling part was watching the new players grow and develop throughout the year. Seeing kid's faces beam with pride when they caught a ball or connected at the plate was worth all of the time and effort spent on the practice field. Of course there were also disappointments but our players learned to handle them with class and good sportsmanship.
I cannot wait to start all over again with a new group of kids. Play Ball!
