Good Sportsmanship

At one point during a game, the Little League coach called aside one of his 7-year-old players and asked, “Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?”

The little boy nodded.

“Do you understand that what matters is not whether we win or lose, but that we have fun together as a team?”

The boy nodded.

“So,” the coach continued, “I’m sure you know that when an out is called, you shouldn’t argue, curse or attack the umpire. Nor should you call him a ‘pecker-head.’ Do you understand all that?”

Again, the boy nodded.

The coach continued, “And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play, it’s bad sportsmanship to call your coach ‘a dumb jerk,’ isn’t it?”

For the fourth time, the boy nodded.

“Good,” said the coach. “Now go over there and explain all that to your mother.”
