Don't you remember the glory of playing Little League baseball? The thrill of victory, the pain of defeat.
Then there is just plain old having fun.
But on every little league team, no matter where you live, or what kind of league you play in, you will always find these 9 players on your little league team.
So enough of this mumbo jumbo, lets get a move on.
This is the kid that cries whenever he makes a mistake or has bad at bat. Normally he is one of the better players, but when he makes a mistake he just can't seem to get over it.
You can't help but feel bad for the kid even though he shouldn't be crying. But at the same time you want to scream in his face: This is Little League kid! Quit crying!
Often he is the No. 4 hitter just because he is the biggest kid on the team. He often isn't mean, but can be a real pain in a butt some times. You'll notice him sometimes in the dugout punching people after he scores. He doesn't know he is hurting you but he does.
Often when he hits a ball that rolls to the fence the first base coach makes the common mistake of sending him to second base. This usually results in an out but an RBI none the less.
This is the kid that never smiles once and just sits in the corner of the dugout and stare into space. Often he is the best player on the team but he always feels like that if he doesn't get a hit the season is in ruins.
He plays his heart out and doesn't talk much, but you always think that his motto is: Silence is golden.
This is the kid that doesn't really care about winning. Often times he is forced onto the team by his parents who are sports freaks.
The coaches often put him in the outfield and put him near last in the batting order but he doesn't really care.
This is the kid that everybody is annoyed by, but they can't tell the coach, because, well, if you did you would be put in the outfield for the rest of the year.
Often times he's the team's opening day starter and when he is not pitching he is playing shortstop. Kids treat him like a friend, but deep inside they don't really like him.
He acts like he has a free pass to play in the MLB.
This is the kid that the coach doesn't even have to evaluate and he already has an open spot at the bottom of the batting order for him.
He just can't field or catch pop flies. Some people have it, some people don't. This kid definitely doesn't have it. He often smiles when he strikes out and you really get mad at him.
He always whines about his playing time and you just want to beat him up at times.
This is the kid that should be doing track instead of baseball. He often bats lefty and drag bunts the whole year.
He is often short and stocky, but he has serious speed. His on base percentage is through the roof despite only hitting it into the outfield just a few times a year.
This is the kid that may not be the best player on the team, but he absolutely loves to play baseball.
Often times he is overlooked by his teammates, but he always happens to make the big plays every once in a while.
While he can be a hero in the instant he can also be a rally killer or he can occasionally miss a pop fly.
This is the kid that will get solid playing time, but seems to know every cheer in the book.
He is always the one giving the pep talk before the game and he is always the one that pumps up the team when they are down.
Everybody is friends with the kid even though he is not that great at baseball.
He could be a cheerleader if he actually tried.
