The extreme juxtaposition of students that I teach and coach came into view today in a dramatic way. After school, my backup SS/2B and starting pitcher stayed after school to do some work for me and keep his mind off the news that was coming tonight. While he was there, the starting 2B and starting pitcher stopped by to talk about grades.
The first kid found out he made it into Yale this evening.
The second kid, who is good enough to play at least Division II college baseball, might not be eligible to play this spring because he's failing Spanish and Art.
