One other thought…


…this reminds me of when I was coaching a little league team several years ago. We were tied in the last inning with our tying runner on second base with no outs.

Our runner decided to try to steal third base and got thrown out. After the inning, my assistant coach/buddy asked why I gave him the steal there. I said I would never in a million years have given him the steal sign there…the runner was already in scoring position…with no outs. He went on his own.

So while I was bewildered and even angry at the situation, as I explained it to my assistant coach…I added that ultimately it was my fault. We told the players the signs…we practiced signs and practiced base running. But until that moment never instructed them not to steal unless given the steal sign.

Did I throw the player under the bus by saying to my assistant the runner went on his own? Even though I also came to the conclusion in the same conversation that I was at fault for not teaching him that he 1) shouldn’t steal in that situation and 2) shouldn’t steal without getting a sign from the coach?
