Wow… a handwritten note! Brycen points out how important the coach is to a player’s decision to continue to play. Another season with a coach that made him afraid to swing the bat and Brycen might have decided not to play baseball again. My ultimate measure of a successful season is if the players want to play again the following season. Not only did Brycen come back the next season, he and his parents also requested to play on the team I coached.
