Coaching is a hobby that takes a strong devotion because of the enormous tole it takes on one social life. It is not a hobby that someone just does when they have a little spare time. It is something that one must make time for, 2-3 hours of your day, 3-4 times a week. It takes more than a willingness to do it, however. It takes an ability to communicate with children, to be able to teach them not just baseball, but about themselves as well.
For Coach Jonny of the Daly City Tribe and Grizzlies, coaching is not just a hobby, but a passion. His desire to watch these children grow into fine young men pushes him to come to the field everyday. For many children, the father figure he has become is the one thing that keeps their lives from spiraling out of control.
