Little league parents

I just love having all these young kids at our events. At our Seven Sister Series in Dewey we have age groups 9 and under, 10 to 13, 14-18. It is always a kick to watch these kids get up on stage and receive their medals. At Sunday's 5k I neglected to announce that one of the young kids set a new course record. Not on purpose mind you but just an honest mistake. His father approched me and let me know I did not announce that his son set a record. I apologized to both him and his son. He went on to let me know how unhappy he was. I brought his son back up on stage and had Barb announce to the crowd that he set an age group record. And here i am thinking about what little league parents must go through. Not easy being a parent. Foul Ball!
