Youth baseball’s financial costs have become spirally out of control. I have been willing to write about this. A single recreational value has grown so much more expensive, and therefore it has become a considerable challenge to the kids to play little leagues in baseball. Kids have lacked parental support just because most of the parents have no interest in these particular kids’ games. In return, most of the parents recently have been much keen on supporting their kids so they can improve their interest in baseball events (Andrews, 2015). In fact, most of the parents have been so ignorant in this that they have seen it as a minor event yet it is very significant to the children. In the fact that parents have not shown much concern in this by supporting their kids financially, kids have developed negative attitudes towards the game and lack self-confidence on the same. Kids have lacked mentors in this. Firstly, their parents who should act as their first mentors have shown less concern about the case. Parents who are supposed to be acting as mentors and role models to their children regarding baseball league formation for their children have shown very little concentration on the same. In fact, most parents have no time for it and see it as a time waste for their children. Children have lacked coaches who can train the same and give morale to them. In fact, it has been out of shape even whereby no one is seen to be interested in the same. A role model is a key to every success.
No one currently is showing much concern regarding kids’ baseball league formation (Andrews, 2015). It has to my attention that some of the reasons why most parents are not willing to involve their children in this is that the cost of the equipment has become so expensive. In fact, I have observed that the equipment which used to be sold at such cheap prices through Wal-Mart and even in discount stores is now sold at expensive prices in sports stores or even online bearing all risks in the online market. Buying online has become so expensive due to the costs of shipping commissions and scam risks. It has come to my attention that it is costly roughly 80.00 per kid whereas it used to cost 25.00 per kid (Brown, 2017). This has become too much hence less interest in the game.
Regarding this fact, most children have sought other means of entertainment. Some children have engaged themselves in fall ball playing teams which seem to be cheap. They have been playing this year-round as part of their movie (Brown, 2017). Currently, the rate of signing up for the baseball team has become so low, and most of the kids now have shown less interest in the same. In fact, most children, are now engaging in video games as their alternative and wasting so much time on them. This challenge has brought up some emotional problems, especially for the kids.
Kids need to play this, but yet they lack the resources for the same. In my sense, I can say that baseball is not all about making kids physically fit. The parent who has ever had his or her kid play based ball for seven years since five years old will find that no organized sport like this not unless you talk of winter basketball which it did 11-year-old (Andrews, 2015). It is true that most the kids now physically fit through involving in games such as athletics, football, and basketball. In my opinion, I do suggest that for the kid to get good body condition to play baseball, should be involved in sports and any other game which have no concern with baseball.
In my point of view, the kids are supposed to practice and specialize at an early age so that they can keep themselves in excel. In my experience, kids with motivation and athleticism from their parents will have physical fitness. In this case, it will be straightforward for the kids to catch up with alternative means of physical fitness. It all depends on how kids get motivation for physical fitness activities. Parents should spare some time to show more concern about what their kids need. I don’t say that baseball is not recommended to kids, but it should be incorporated as part of their entertainment. I would like to advise kids that cope with what is available as their alternative I understand children eager to enjoy the newest game, but they should as well cope with any challenge they meet on their way. It is recommendable that they utilize the little games facilities they get and take it low. My advice is it’s all about entertainment and physical fitness, and therefore they need to use whatever alternative game available to avoid their emotional issues.
