Youth Sports: Size Does Not Always Matter

There is a great story on ESPN.com about Tim Collins, a 5 foot 7, 155 lb pitcher in the KC Royals organization. Tim Collins just might make his way onto a Major League team despite is size because talent rules. This story should inspire all youth athletes who are short in comparison to their teammates and opponents.

My daughter, CC, is constantly measuring herself to see if she has grown. She is 4 foot 7 which is average height for a 4th grader, but she feels short. She feels short because she plays on a very good AAU basketball team with and against some really tall girls.

The Main Point

I tell my daughter to be patient that she will grow, but she may never be tall. Then I tell her that talent will dictate. Tim Collins proves that point for me.
