Give The Player(s) A Fair Chance On The Field!
Dear Coach (insert name here), We, on behalf of supporters of recreational fairness, noticed at Mt. Tabor Park the other day, that everyone on the church league softball team had a fair chance to play, and hit...that is except Taylor Clark Duncan. He was told that he would not be benched that he would have a fair chance with the other players, but come game day, even though he came to EVERY practice held, something not that many players can say on any team in general, he was the 12th Man and cast away by the coach. When he hit that one time, he was so nervous, his nerves psychologically got the best of him, and he grounded out to the pitcher, therefore staying on the bench for the rest of the game. We are SICK and TIRED of seeing innocent hard-working people like him benched by the coach because of his "buddy-system" or competitive-like strategies. Let me make this clear, if more people were given a fair chance to spark and shine, there would be more fun to the game. Let's prove the coach wrong once and for all, that buddy systems do NOT work out at all, and to give every player on that team a fair chance to play not only in the batter's box, but in the field as well. He was the only player that was NOT on the original line-up sheet. We are here to unite against castaway strategies and to promote the true message of the Lord which is to "play fair". We cannot let this continue. Youth's perception of recreational team sports is changing because they are constantly being set aside, casted away even in CHURCH RECREATION LEAGUES. We have to have our voice to stop this issue, it's only provoking depression in more teens at a higher rate than it was 20 years ago. More teens nowadays are leaving team sports for sports like Table Tennis, Archery, Tennis, Skateboarding, etc. due to issues such as this. This is the biggest reason recreational team sports are in its decline with the youth of today's generation, and will decline some more with future generations if no voice is heard. We the people, who want to promote fai45rness in all parts of the country, as well as the world wish for you, Coach, give T.C. a chance, whether his performance is good or bad, EVERYONE on a RECREATIONAL team should be given a fair chance. It should also be noted that Taylor has a total views of 1,600 views on his video on "taylorduncanmusic" channel, called Teenager Hits 100 MPH Fastball, and did it with a hurt hand, and an eye that was partly blocked by a cataract (He has since had cataract removal surgery) Thank you for listening and I sure hope you give him the chance that he deserves.
