Too often in little League the coaches and players are under a micro-scope. They are looked upon as the reasons for winning or losing. You often hear comments like "Hey Joey your hit won the game for us". Also coaches congratulate each other after winning a game. I'm not saying that any of those kudos are undeserved. But you need to dig a little deeper to find the major reasons for the success of the players and the team.The parents do so many things to contribute to the Little League.
