A parent coaching and "Daddy Ball" are two different things in my mind. There have been parents that coach and happen to have a child play them. Also, some of the parent coaches have been pretty successful and were there before or after their child played for them. I don't follow softball hardly at all, but just curious how many current coaches are "Daddy Ball"?

Lol that honestly depends on who you ask. I'm my opinion, there isn't many at the high school level. There's too much work and hoops to jump through. At that level "daddy ball" is usually just a term thrown around by someone who didn't get their way.

Thanks. I didn’t think there were too many dads coaching just to coach their kids. I know it happens. But I know what you mean.

It's pretty telling if they start when their kids get there and quit once they graduate.

Right, I know. Still not too many that have done that at the High School level that i know of. A few sure, but i dont think the number is overwhelming. Could be wrong.

Yep, and this will be lil Suzie #2 for this daddy and mommy coaches. Coached #1 until she graduated then quit. I look for the same with #2. This only happens in softball and V-ball here. In V-ball there's the added variable of not only mommy ball but "I want to coach when there's talent and quit when the talent graduates." This is also round two for V-ball.

The common excuse is "I want to spend more time with the family." No, the talent ran out.
