Back in the early 90’s, I met a neighbor, a mother who had an 8‐year‐old son. The mother enrolled the young boy in the local Little League, and they were excited. One Saturday morning, I saw them in the lobby before going to a game and the young boy was overjoyed to be in his uniform and he could not wait to start playing. A couple of weeks later, I noticed the little boy and his mother going to his game. However, he did not have the same sparkle in his eye and looked like he didn’t want to go. I asked how baseball was going and the boy looked down and said “ok”. His mother shook her head and whispered, “he had a few bad games”. I told the young boy to hang in there and that he would do better the next time. Well, unfortunately things did not get better, and he later decided to stop playing.
Here was a young boy who could have benefitted from personal coaching. A few simple baseball drills and words of loving encouragement probably would have made all the difference in the world for this kid. The biggest factor to his lost interest in baseball was a lack of success. It eliminated the prospect of having fun. Here was a young boy who could have and should have benefitted from someone with good baseball experience and specific instructions. Lil Diamonds is my chance to help other kids have success.
Learning how to win is #1
Consistently drilling is #2
#3 There will be setbacks on the path to success. Your love and encouragement will help them on their path.
#4 As long as your kid achieves success on the field, he/she will have fun and then they’ll want to practice, do drills and keep playing.
These are the same principles I have followed day in and day out that led me to get recruited by the Seattle Mariners and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
