Mr. Gillies Speech on Behalf of the Senior Parents

Dear WR Varsity BB Seniors,

I have been selected to represent all of your parents and family members in delivering a “farewell” message to all of you in honor of your last high school baseball season. 

You gentlemen are part of a unique and historic group. All great institutions have had a beginning.  There is a date, a time, and a group of people that represent the start of something which will last for decades if not generations.  You have been privileged to be members of the first graduating class of this fine, new, institution we call West Ranch High School.  That is a badge of honor and pride you will carry with you your whole life.  We parents believe that you have given this school a great start, and as its first graduating class you have already established traditions of excellence, that will be carried on by those who follow after you. 

We parents are so very proud of you.  As little boys we bought you plastic bats with wiffle balls.  On the green grass of yards and parks we softly tossed you pitches and were amazed at how hard you hit the ball and how far you could throw.  We saw the smile that would come on your face the first times you caught the ball, in your first little fake leather baseball glove.   In time, wiffle balls turned into tennis balls, which turned in to real size baseballs that were a little spongy.  In the back of our minds we thought, “Wow he really has a talent for this stuff”.  We then signed you up for youth baseball and became your number one fans.  Out of thousand of kids who played, your talents in the sport made you rise to the top of your team.  We followed you through thick and thin. We’ve paid thousands of dollars for cleats and bats, gloves and under armor.  We’ve driven thousands of miles, eaten pounds and pounds of snack bar food, candy, sodas, seeds, and fast food.  We watched you play in the cold wind and rain, as well as the hot burning sun.  We ate the dust of parking lots, got our cars pelted by foul balls, endured good umps and bad umps, good coaches and bad coaches, good parents and bad parents.  All of this we have done as parents because we love you, and we love to watch you play baseball.

We also want to recognize your hard work these past four years.  Four years ago you started high school by attending a junior high campus.  Your home field was just a patch of scraped off dirt.  Through the hard work and efforts of the coaching staff, school administration, parents, and you players, a beautiful baseball facility was planted on that breezy plateau, where the American flag waves proudly, framed by rugged mountains in the distance.  But it must never be forgotten that it is your blood, your sweat, and your tears that have fallen on that diamond as you practiced and prepared, and competed for the honor of your school.  Although the playoffs eluded you this year, please know this, that you have laid a solid foundation upon which future league champions will stand. 

Never forget that baseball, in a way, is like a snapshot of life.  The years are like innings that have their peaks and valleys, strike-outs and double plays, come from behind doubles, and three up and three down.  But being a Wildcat has given you some great tools that will benefit you in life.  Teamwork, tenacity, patience, courage, effort, sportsmanship, punctuality, respect for authority, professionalism, pride in appearance, strategy, friendship, and loyalty.  These are all lessons that you have learned and are tools that will benefit you in the coming “innings” of your life.                

 

So we as your parents and family challenge you to go out and do great things.  Make big goals.  Dream big dreams.  Ignore the critics and the naysayers who will try to discourage and dissuade you.  Listen to some famous words by Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th president.  “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is no effort without error and shortcomings; but it is he who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly.  So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls, who know neither victory nor defeat.”

You gentlemen are not among those “cold and timid souls”, you have striven valiantly indeed.  Thank you for entering that arena and competing.  As parents please know that we love you with all of our hearts.  We are so very proud of you.  Thank you for giving us pleasure in watching you play baseball.  

Peter Gillies
