Default My wife is driving me insane!

She is constantly after me to let our kid play in tournaments. He has filled in a few games for guys that didn't show but he is not ready for tournaments and it isn't fair to the rest of the team to put him on the field instead of much better players that we have available. She doesn't get this. She also doesn't get the fact that if I don't put the best players available to me on the field then all my good players will say and go play for someone else and there won't be a team.

Do your buddys have kids around the same age. A guy I play with got his son and a bunch of the high school players and formed a team with them that way they can play with friends and still be at the field with him there.

No, most of them are too young to have kids that age. If he could round up enough of his friends to get a team together, I would certainly help them out but there just aren't enough of them that play ball. That is a good idea though.

He does play league with me. I want him to play as much as possible and I look forward to when he can be a regular in tournaments but that time is still a ways off.

It just drives me nuts because there have been so many times in the past that I tried to talk him and even some of his firends into going to practice but apharently practicing wasn't cool and my wife was the first one to make excuses for them instead of encouraging them to get better. He has finally seen the light but has a long way to go. He didn't grow up playing baseball so we basically started from scratch.

I can't seem to get my wife to understand that tournaments are not the time to learn, practice is the time to learn. If you want to play, put in the work.

Don't feel bad at all. My best fielding days were between the ages of 14 and 20 because I was taking 100 ground balls a day lol

Only feel bad if you hit him. Anything else is either a lesson or in this case an ego boost. I love snapping fools off. Got a nice one the other day. It was in league playing a church team. I had no idea that one of those guys had played conference ball. I pitched him low and away and it came back in one hell of a hurry. I was impressed. It has been a while since one came back like that.
