I finally got a chance to talk to my son yesterday about the situation, I do feel better about what happened. He let me know that the kid wasn't an everyday player and the day before they had some injuries. Coach let the kid know he'd be starting,,,,,,. My son informed me that even knowing this and knowing they had to be leaving at 8am, that he didn't get into the dorms until 2am. I asked if he was sure about this? He said yes, he's his roommate. My son said he was totally unprepared to play that day, even with the chance to impress the coach and try and work his way into more innings, he was unprepared.
