When last we spoke, during the Little League All Star Game, I was uncertain about my future status as a coach. I had a chat yesterday with John, the league president and co-worker of Tiffany's who recruited me to be a coach in the first place, and I can now say that barring unforseen circumstances I will be back, though perhaps as an assistant coach. I will very likely remain in the Mustang division, where the 9- and 10-year-olds play, and I will show up a few times during Fall Ball in October so I can have some clue about which players to draft next year.
I told John that I enjoyed the experience, and that I would like to return, but that if he had a player's father who really wanted to coach that he should go ahead and bypass me. I agreed to be an assistant if that happens, but for now I'm still pencilled in as a head coach, giving me an opportunity to improve on my perfect record and to bore you all with more coaching tales next year. So don't go away, I'll be back.Posted by Charles Kuffner on June 08, 2003 to Just call me Coach | TrackBack
