When you go to a youth baseball game, there are certain sounds you expect to hear. Birds chirping, the ping of the metal bat, kids having fun.....and parents cheering on their children. Agree?
I was surprised to learn that cheering for the players and providing positive encouragement is frowned upon in Holliston. Really?
So what is considered acceptable at youth baseball games these days? Should there by a sign that says "don't cheer?" Should we pretend we're in the library and say "Ssshhhh" if someone is too loud?
It's called having passion for the game. It's called being actively involved in your child's sports and routing on all the kids–no matter which team they are on. It's called being happy when someone makes a good play.
If you ask me, more parents should have that kind of passion. Can someone please tell me what's acceptable these days? Oooh, I'm sorry, was that too loud?
