I am the happily married father of two young kids. I had the fortune to play competitive sports in high school (basketball, baseball) and college (baseball). I’d forgotten just how much I loved baseball until my son started playing. Now my daughter has started playing softball.
Last year, my son started playing travel sports. He was eight years old. He plays on a travel soccer team and a travel baseball team. I’m the head coach of the baseball team. I think travel sports at this age are ridiculous.
8U Travel is an ongoing collection of the therapeutic musings of a neophyte coach trying to wrap his head around travel sports beginning at such a ludicrous age. – Brian Sieger
