You have to ask the question, “If Kim Jong-un had the opportunity to play t-shirt league baseball would he have turned out this way?” Of course not! He’d have enjoyed a great childhood playing with his friends at the park and learning how to turn a double play and resolve conflict instead of being a world class turd. Oops.
330 youngsters have signed up to play in the new ARPD Baseball League that starts this week. I’ll go all in and say that none of these kids will turn out to be a dictator. Instead they’ll have fun this summer and keep those happy memories for the rest of their life. Just as tens of thousands of us Alameda park rats did!
You can help prevent development of future dictators by volunteering with the APRD Youth Baseball League. Just a few hours each week can make a huge difference in the lives of some kids who may not have anyone else to learn baseball from. Visit the Alameda Recreation and Park Department today and sign up to be a volunteer for the new t-shirt league. You won’t regret it… and you’ll keep potential dictators off the street. The ARPD is located at 2226 Santa Clara Ave, Alameda.
