Dad Plans Ahead for Softball Prodigy The athletic director at a New Jersey high school took a phone call one day from a father who was considering moving to either that town or a neighboring town. The father explained that his daughter played softball. He wanted to know about the school’s program – its record, state rank, the coach’s credentials, and the number of players who had earned college scholarships. The athletic director shared what information he could. He then asked the father if his daughter would be an incoming freshman.
“Oh no, my daughter will be entering kindergarten next fall,” the father answered.
The athletic director let the father know that much would change before his daughter reached high school.
“We may have a new coach,” he said. “We may even have a new athletic director.”
