Thank you coaches, you are the last of this type. When you retire, expect the next generation of sports to take over.

Baseball is declining, and losing attention from being America's past time. After all... kids with weapons in their hands, Bats, and Balls.. think about it... I lived with this as little league coach. I heard from parents that are so done with the terrible development lifecycle for kids under 10 years of age. Little League and travel ball both with so much cronyisms, and nepotism. The biggest joke was watching kids retire from baseball by age 9. That's why we got out. Keep it simple and fun...

Not to mention extended family members of Angelo, but, seriously, there is no entitlement needed in kids sports. Let the kids play. Keep your extended family entitlement on the sideline. Not many of them made it past high school playing. Their Dad's didn't cut it either...

Lou there are other sports at Amador, get a clue... as AD, support them. Baseball is only a FRACTION of the athletics...

Thanks for a great article! The field maintenance at Amador is incredible. The school should be very proud. It’s a great place to watch a game, so come on out and enjoy an EBAL battle — I think you’ll be impressed. Foothill too of course. It’s always great fun to see the players from both schools and around the league compete.

So grateful to these coaches for all they pour into our programs and fields. I have to say, in such a wealthy community, it's sad that they have to do all they do, though.
