Softball Manager

Site Build It! Site Build It!

This section of the web site is devoted to the Fastpitch Softball Manager. Coaching youth sports would be so much more enjoyable if you didn't have to deal with all of the "off-the-field" situations. How you handle these situations is equally as important as how well you coach batting practice, but far more delicate.

Have you ever seen how upset a player (and parent) can get if they don't get "their" number on their uniform? Yikes!

The situations below are real stories about issues I have faced and how they were handled. If you are a fastpitch softball manager for long, you will face very similar situations. Take this opportunity to learn from experience so you will be better prepared when you have your own "experience". The stories are true, however, the names have been changed to protect the innocent, and the Guilty.
