Amy, quick question for you...do you know if this guy ever worked with True Sports, in kid's baseball?

Don't get me started on True Sports. My daughter had such a terrible experience with them. I thought it was about promoting good sportsmanship. Little did I know that the emphasis was on the MAN in sportsmanship. They're a bunch of patriarchal bible-thumpers who look down their noses at women and girls and perpetuate sexism. I'm sure True Sports would do well in Afghanistan, Iran or Saudi Arabia.

Hi Bob. Fortunately, having a son, we didn't have to deal with that, but about a decade ago my son played baseball with them one summer,. There was one outspoken, arrogant coach who felt that humiliation was the best way to teach children. The first time I saw this, I asked my son if he wanted to quit, which he did not, so I sat with knots in my stomach every game. Thankfully my son was never singled out for this man's abuse, but we never went back after that season, and I made sure that they knew how I felt.

So forward to March 1 2014 and this same coach gets kicked out of the State Wrestling tourney for verbal abuse of official. Threatening the official that he was going to his house. Never support this Knucklehead!
