I am a sophomore in high school, and with experiences on my freshmen team last year, and from observations made during winter workout sessions with varsity coaches, I’ve noticed some questionable “tendencies” that ultimately affect the baseball program.
The biggest of these “tendencies” is nepitism. The former JV coach had two of his own kids in the program last year, one on varsity as a senior, and one on JV as a sophomore. This year, the coach has moved up as an assistant coach for the varsity, where his youngest son, who is now a junior, will play. It seems to me that one of the team sports commandments has been broken, and the best players are not always playing, or even making the team for that matter.
I have no problem with this, yet, because it doesn’t directly affect me, but it seems to be a big problem. Any suggestions on what to do? Suck it up? Do something? Any advice is welcome. Thank you.
