Strider Posted August 19, 2014 Share Posted August 19, 2014 So much ugliness in the world lately, even in sports, which is supposed to provide a respite from the workaday world. From Little League to the Pros, you hear about the arrests, the tantrums and out-of-control coaches, players, and parents. Then, like a bolt from heaven, every once in a while something happens to remind everyone what is really important in competition and provide an example to the rest of the world of true leadership and how to mentor kids. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Rhode Island Little League Coach Dave Belisle. His team had just lost their Little League World Series game to Illinois 8-7 and were in tears. Watch Dave as he gathers his team and gives them (and us) a talk that will melt your heart. I know the year is just half-over but he's my Coach of the Year, no question. http://m.espn.go.com/general/story?storyId=11374566&city=boston&src=desktop&rand=ref~%7B%22ref%22%3A%22http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fm%3Fhl%3Den%26gl%3Dus%26client%3Dms-android-lge%26source%3Dandroid-unknown%26action%3Ddevloc%26q%3Dkids%2Breceive%2Bspeech%2Bto%2Bremember%2Bfrom%2Brhode%2Bisland%2Blittle%2Bleague%2Bcoach%22%7D Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
