 What coaches should know when selecting team members and what kids should know when choosing friends

Choose Character over Characters

Character will be there when things get tough. Characters look out for their own best self-interest. Coaches and teammates can count on players with character. They are always on time, respect the game and are good teammates. They respect their parents, coaches, umpires, teammates and the opposition. When the going gets tough, players with character step up, accept responsibility and encourage others. Players with character always want the ball. They want to pitch in big games, be at bat with the winning run on base and the ball hit to them in win or lose situations. When things go bad, characters throw equipment, complain, find excuses and blame others for poor personal and team performance.

Character wins – Characters whine.

“The ball will always find the weakest link.” – Darryl Royal
