Youth Sports: My Daughter is a Better Athlete Than I am

I was approached by Sportsgirlsplay.com to write a guest post for the site. I was honored to do so. I wrote an honest post called Confessions of a Youth Sports Dad.

The story was inspired by a simple question that my daughter asked me just the other day.

"Daddy, if I were a boy, what was my name going to be?"

The question brought back memories of when my wife was pregnant with our daughter. I remember process of figuring out two names prior to the ultrasound appointment. We selected a name for a boy and a name for a girl. I also remember how I wanted another potential Major League Baseball player, not a girl. The story details my ignorance about women's sports.

The Main Point

My wife and my daughter have taught me that women can be great athletes.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your "confession" on SportsGirlsPlay! It is a great piece and it just goes to show that when it comes to parenting, you can learn a lot from your kids, too.
