So much for “playing for the fun of the game.”
Back when I was in Little League (I wasn’t very good, but I still enjoy baseball), the worst aspect of the game was the parents. The parents of one team, sponsored by a local fraternal organization, became notorious as the “Moose Mothers.”
Girls (and boys) may just want to have fun, but the parents seemed determined to poison the game.
If you wonder why big-time football and other sports are hopelessly corrupt, just look at their “fans.”
