I've coached high school ball on and off for a few years now. The last time I gave it up, I said this is it. But the program went down hill really bad. The kids hated the staff, and they where getting close to not having enough kids play, they considered closing the program completely there just weren't enough kids signing up..
So I had a couple kids contact me, and talked me into coming back and told me the kids would play for me..
That was 5 years ago, and the program is alive and well.. I turn 70 in June, and I don't run as fast as I used to and walk a little slower also..lol..
So my assistant is going to take over, the kids love this guy, and I'll visit once in a while..
It's kind of a sad day, but I have to let go sooner or later.
