There is absolutely nothing is worse than parents who yell and scream from the stands! Of all the things that get me going as a coach, not being able to control yourself and act like an adult is probably my biggest baseball pet peeve. I've been around long enough to have witnessed countless parents making a scene at a little league game or baseball tournament. That behaviour isn't acceptable, and some screaming parents who rage out need to be put on notice. Shouting at baseball coaches, the umpires, the other fans and heaven forbid your own kid just won't be tolerated.
If the situation gets too heated, we end up having fights, injuries and police reports and I've seen them all!
In this episode I talk about 3 ways parents scream and yell that have to go:
1. Shouting at the Coach
2. Yelling at the Umpire
3. Screaming at the Players
Bonus: Raging at other parents.
To me this type of behaviour isn't acceptable, no matter who you are. Remember everyone is likely there to relax and have a good time so don't be that guy, or girl, who ruins it for everyone!
Sit down, shut up, enjoy the game!
