In the world of reporting, it is not unusual to see tears shed.
But you normally don’t see that happen at a youth baseball all-star game. And, when it happens, the tears normally flow from an upset child after a loss or an angry parent who believes his or her child didn’t get enough playing time.
On this particular Saturday afternoon, it was a coach shedding tears and apologizing to one of his players.
He was upset the young man had not gotten into the game.
His displeasure in himself led to tears. His own tears.
