Baseball Lessons


There's a lot to the game of baseball.


There's pitching . . .
and hitting . . .
and running . . .
and stealing . . .
and catching . . .
and throwing . . .
and timing.



 There's team signals . . .
and sideline coaches . . .
and extra innings . . .
and umpires. . .
and spitting sunflower seeds. . .
and player positions. . .
and opposing teams.


There is the coach
who teaches the boy how to be
a true athlete.
On and off the field.
How to be humble when he's winning
and gracious when he's loosing.

A coach who believes in a boy.
Who encourage and builds up;
who treats the player and umpires
with respect.
Who teaches the boy to play with integrity.

A coach who helps the boy go beyond what
he thinks he can do . . .and provides
a safe place to try something new.

A coach who believes;
not only in his team
but also in the Lord.
