High School Camaraderie

The Los Angeles Times’ Eric Sondheimer, writes the local L.A. high school sports beat. And while this article is focused on the city he covers, it is applicable to any city where student-athlete transfers occur. We all know that college sports are big money and, therefore, there’s a lot at stake at the high school level and that athletes must do what is best for their careers. But it is also nice to hear stories such as these and think about the fun and purity that can be high school sports.

May 4, 2015 – Another winner from Erskine

We love the Los Angeles Times’ Chris Erskine and we love youth baseball. That’s why we particularly love his latest piece, In the Ninth Inning of a Joyful Baseball Season. Its guaranteed to make you chuckle, and you may tear up a bit at the end. Just like coaching youth baseball.
