There are plenty more than 10 Things Every Baseball Mom Can Do while Supporting her son in his baseball adventure. But we kept this post at the quickest and top ten. Maybe we’ll do a Part 2. Wyatt and I are very similar in how we like people to interact with us as athletes. So, he and I built this list together. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve said that Baseball is not the only thing in the world. To only then turn around and say to a friend that our entire world is baseball.

Perspective

From the first catch in the backyard to every painstaking effort perfecting a swing, these are the moments that are cherished. It’s in the early-morning practices and the late-night discussions about teamwork and resilience. Each strike and home run, every cheer from the stands, they’re the building blocks of a journey in baseball and in life.

As parents, our role is multifaceted. We are the cheerleaders, the unofficial (sometimes official) coaches, and sometimes the shoulder to cry on. It’s our job to ride the waves of triumphant victories and to soothe the sting of tough losses. We must teach our children that while baseball is a game of skill and strategy, it is also a game that mirrors life’s unpredictability and demands adaptability.

To create a supportive environment, we focus on the positives, encourage effort no matter the outcome, and always remind our young athletes that their worth is not tied to their athletic performance. In the grand scheme of things, whether Wyatt becomes a Major League player or hangs up his cleats after Little League, these days of baseball will be looked back on with fondness. It’s about helping him to love the game, to learn from it, and to carry its lessons into all avenues of his life.

Remember, as much as baseball might seem like our whole world at times, it’s the lessons learned and the joy found in playing the game that will stick with Wyatt long after the final inning is played.
