I love to watch the little people play sports.  I went to my nephews game( 7 and 8 year olds ) last night and it was  enjoyable and entertaining.  This is my nephew Bryce’s 4th year playing and what a difference in performance.  He plays lots of sports, his mom started him when he was 4.  I believe he inherited his dads natural athletic abilities.  The genetics in our DNA is amazing, and we never know what other things are passed down through generations.   If children play sports they learn valuable life tools.  (not every child needs to play sports, he or she can have other interests) My mom made the comment yesterday that when my brother played baseball, (they split up the children according to their age) he was a tall boy and very good, parents would get mad and think that he was lying about his age.  It is amazing to me how sometimes parents get more political than the kids,  competitive, misguide, and teach them incorrect lessons of sportsmanship.
