  • Entitlement, the belief that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment. This word entitlement is the key factor that undermines a young athlete’s daily routine in getting his or her work done in the sport that they play. Of course everybody wants to be a big leaguer, an all-star, or maybe even a hall of famer. But the entitlement of young athletes does not only have an affect on young baseball players. This is happening all around America in every youth…

  • Trust the Process

    The game of baseball isn't an easy one.  To some the game itself may come easy but the game is difficult.  I didn't start playing baseball until I was in my 11 year old season.  Prior to that I raced motocross and spent all my free time pursuing an amateur career in that sport.  When I decided to play baseball my parents supported me.  I wasn't very good that first year.  Playing the required 2 innings and getting 1 at bat per little league rules was the only playing time I got.  After a…

  • A Note To the Grind

    Let me start off by saying that baseball is the greatest sport in the world. “How is that?” one might ask; obviously either never having played the game, or having played but never was good enough to make it off the bench other than their required two innings or so, which they were mandated to play by their little league sanctioned rules. The people which ironically in life are more than likely those who don’t understand the concept of getting out what you put in. Those who can’t seem to…

  • The power of Entitlement

    The entitlement of youth athletes affects a team as a whole in various ways It can either be a negative or a positive thing; it all depends. Growing up as a baseball player I’ve been taught 'nothing will ever be handed to me,' no matter what circumstances I am living through. There is always going to be one player that is better than everyone else who will also receive certain perks and benefits, which can bring a whole team down. Sometimes, players will not play to their full potential if they…

  • Selfless

          A serene Saturday morning at the ball field, calm wind, sun slowly starting to thaw out the mist, not a single moment to be stressed out because “I'm playing the game I love so dearly,” right? This day could not be any more perfect, until that very first fastball is thrown to start the game. There is always that one parent in the stands, precisely standing out, or even off to the side. The one that needs to argue every single call, the one that needs to bellow at every single…

  • Work before glory.

          Team is defined as "A group of players forming one side in a competitive setting", nonetheless being a part of youth sports in the Millennials has created a false image of what a team truly is. In its purest form, a team is a group of people FIGHTING TOGETHER EVERYDAY for a desired outcome or cause. From a very young age children have been raised with a strong sense of entitlement to success and in turn belief for a prosperous future, however this is a new epidemic in…
