The Matheny Manifesto – Little League’s The Parent Connection

St. Louis Cardinals Manager, Mike Matheny, was asked to coach his son’s baseball team. Believing the biggest problem in youth sports is overbearing parents, he decided to write a letter to them, addressing his concerns and expressing conditions he required from his team’s moms and dads. The long, detailed letter was initially meant for only those with children on his team, but it eventually became the Matheny Manifesto, an impactful, direct, and honest message parents everywhere can learn from. With many baseball and softball seasons just beginning, we encourage you to watch the Matheny Manifesto Video which appeared on ESPN during the 2013 Little League Baseball® World Series. The video features Little League’s president and CEO, Stephen D. Keener, and provides important ways you can best support your Little Leaguer®. Click on the below image to watch the Matheny Manifesto.

The process is also very easily completed on your mobile devices. You’ll even receive a reminder email one day before your shift.
