The commitment of Little League coaches worldwide is so commendable. Most of them have fulltime jobs and children of their own. There are quiet heroes walking among us, with clipboards and catcher's mitts, shaping young lives.

"I had a coach who was a prison guard. Wasn't a whole lot of fun."
I'm still wondering what speech the winning coach gave.
