This summer amongst all the things I was doing... I seized the opportunity
and enrolled into Disney story artist: Leo Matsuda's class at skillshare. It was
way to affordable to miss. I promised myself I'd post a story about my coaching
experience so I'm very please to share that story I came up with you. It's
based on real life events. Hope you like:)
Small Leagues, Big fight!
This summer I've been coaching my son's baseball team...
... and teaching all these awesome children turned out to be quite a job!
The reward I got was these priceless look ...
But the real difficulties I faced was to coach the new ways of baseball to kids
whose parents were taught differently. Yes we're that old!
MAD MAX: "Let's GO Kevin!"
MAD MAX: "Come on COACH! The bat is too heavy!!!"
MAD MAX: "My son would have hit that ball if it weren't for this bat!"
"OK Kevin! Let's try one more time..." I said.
"... and remember to place the bat close to your ear!"
MAD MAX: "Let's GO Son! You're the best!!!"
MAD MAX: "THIS ISN'T HAPPENING!"
MAD MAX: "Are you blind Coach? Can't you see the T-ball
is too tall for him!"
MAD MAX: "I can't stand it anymore!"
"Good try Kevin. Now we need to work on something else..."
"... You have to keep your eyes open and look at the ball..."
MAD MAX: "Enough with your bad coaching! I'll show my boy
how it should be done!"
MAD MAX: "There son... Move your hands further up and
raise your elbows!"
MAD MAX: "And now lets show everyone how it should be done!"
MAD MAX: "NO! NO! Have another try!"
"PLEASE sir don't stand near the batter, this could be
"I am coaching the team and I will not... sir? SIR? "
"Sir PLEASE step out of the field or you son loses his turn!"
MAD MAX: "LOSER! I'll be watching you!"
"Kevin? Do you want me to show you
how we hit the ball?"
"Good! First thing, lets assume the previous pose
I showed you..."
"... and do you remember how we position the bat?"
"Don't forget to look at the ball when you swing."
"You will hit it this time. I am pretty sure!"
MAD MAX: " Coach! You're making the SAME MISTAKES AGAIN!!!"
"SIR STAND OUT OF THE BATTER'S WAY!!"
MAD MAX: "Mind your business coach!"
"I WILL STAND MY GROUND SIR. IT'S FOR SECURITY REASONS!"
MAD MAX: "I'm NOT moving! What will you do about it?
Huh... little man?"
"You're right! It would be pointless to fight you in front of our kids!"
MAD MAX: "COWARD!!!"
KEVIN: "Dad? Please, I'd love to play baseball..."
MAD MAX: "Oh don't worry son! It's a for your best interest... I want you
to grow up and become an awesome player."
MAD MAX: "You ear that coach? Stop whining and start
this practice again!!!"
MAD MAX: "What are you waiting for? Lets play ball coach!"
"ALRIGHT!! PLAY BALL KEVIN!!!"
CROWD: "It's a HIT!!!"
CROWD: "RUN! KEVIN RUN!"
MAD MAX: " Yeah...rrrunn sonn!!!"
"LET'S GO KEVIN!!!"
"IT'S WAS A GREAT HIT! Ha HA! Good job Kevin!"
"I knew you could do it."
" ... NEXT BATTER!!!
