Youth players make coaching fun
by Walt Johnson
It’s baseball like you want it to be when you go to
the youth baseball games at the post youth center on
You see children playing the game for the fun of
it and you walk away not caring if someone struck
out, lined a base hit, stole some bases, made an error
or made a great leaping catch. You walk away from it
because you know the kids are there for one reason
— to have fun — and that is exactly what they do.
Saturday, the Diamondbacks met the Rockies in
the youth center’s 7-to-9 year old category for a
friendly game of baseball that Rockies coach Traci
Supan said shows the type of spirit this league has.
“The best thing about coming out to coach the
teams is watching the enthusiasm the kids show. They
are simply out here to have fun and it shows. That
enthusiasm and spirit also makes it enjoyable for the
coaches who come out and work with the youth,”
