One of the nice things about coaching 8-year-old baseball is you get to be in the field when your team is on defense.
Mostly I go around reminding the kids to be thinking about what they’ll do if the ball is hit to them. It rarely pays off. They don’t often catch it. If they do, they typically panic. And some aren’t capable of throwing it from shortstop to first anyway.
My other duty is keeping them alert.
