Little League Again and Again and Again

I have been coaching Little League baseball since I was in high school.

If you are wondering how I am going to tie Little League baseball to stories about yarn, knitting and Your Daily Fiber, well, I’m not. I guess I could mention that Elaine knits yarn from Your Daily Fiber at Little League games. There, I tied it all together and I can get on to what is really what I want to talk about.

I have coached kids baseball in four of the last five decades. I have coached baseball to three different generations. That’s a bunch of baseball.

As a senior in high school, a friend and I decided it would be fun to coach a kids baseball team. Our baseball careers had come to an end and we were looking for a way to be around baseball. My youngest brother’s team was looking for a coach. My friend and I gladly volunteered. (1st generation)

Our son (the twin’s dad) loved baseball. I coached most of the teams he played on. (2nd generation)

Now, as I have mentioned I am coaching the twins’ team. (3rd generation)

When the twins asked me to coach my first thoughts were, “Wow, it has been a long time (more than a decade) since I have done that. Oh well, how different can it be?”
