I LOVE TO WATCH YOU PLAY

In the midst of today's epic world of youth sports comes a collection of real utterances by real parents straight from the little league baseball field.
Put yourself in the middle of all the action! NO, NOT ON THE FIELD BUT ON THE BLEACHERS, where what parents say to their kids is so generously shared with whoever happens to be in earshot, and is as much a part of the game as the balls, bats, and cleats that are carried.
This collection artfully weaves parents and kids together culminating in the six little words that are possibly the only words your kids truly want to hear you say at their sporting event: "I Love To Watch You Play!" It's a beautiful day for baseball folks! Enjoy this stuff of childhood.
