As my 14 year-old baseball team wraps up what looks to be Trent’s final season, I’ve had a lot of time to reflect.  These boys lost their first game, reeled off 16 wins in a row, and lost their last game, going into our playoffs this weekend.  Along the way, I’ve noticed how they’ve won.  They’ve been classy to their opponents, and they’ve let off the accelerator when told to do so.  They had learned how to win, I’m proud of them for that.  Upon losing last Thursday, I noticed that they didn’t blame anyone else.  Each of them knew there was a moment when THEY could have made a play, or done something different.  They didn’t criticize the other team, they complimented them.  They had learned how to lose, and I was equally proud of them.  The next day, they got a chance to volunteer with the Miracle League.  They were gracious, respectful, and compassionate.  Through all the winning and losing, I’ve never been more proud of them than I was for their behavior that night.  I look at this group of young men, and it give me hope for our future.
