Parent Commitment Parents, the commitment required by you to have your child participate in a team sport is both time consuming and difficult. We appreciate the effort you put in getting your child to practice on time, purchasing the necessary equipment and serving as a role model. We hope your child not only becomes a better baseball player, but learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, dedication and perseverance. Along the way, friendships will be made that are even more valuable. Above all, we hope these changes take place while your child is having fun. We appreciate your hard work.
