LITTLE LEAGUE LESSON LEARNED

While managing my brother’s little league team to a championship season there was a bump in the road. We were undefeated and playing a far inferior foe. For some reason we came out listless and were getting seriously thumped halfway through the ballgame. I gathered my team together in the dugout and let them in on my plan to tell the umpire we were going to forfeit the game. All my players protested, saying we couldn’t forfeit because we were undefeated. I told my players nobody cared to play tonite and how we were going to lose anyway. Also I said we could all go home & watch TV rather than wasting our time out on the diamond. The team said they would start playing ball. Of course this woke up the squad and we went on to wallop our opponent. The lesson learned was not to just go through the motions.
