To the editor: Congratulations to the Shallotte Dixie Youth Baseball 10 and under All-Stars team for their outstanding performance and second-place finish in the District 5 Championship Tournament which began Friday night, July 3, and ended in a heart-wrenching 15-13 game against Leland on Wednesday night, July 8.
Thank you, boys, for an awesome all-star season and for playing to the best of your ability. Your talent and effort is to be commended. Truly all of you are all-stars through and through.
Unfortunately, during the excitement of the game, I let my temper get the best of me and felt somehow I knew better than the coaches how to manage the game. I have apologized in person to the affected parties, and now I would like to extend my sincere and heartfelt apology to the Shallotte coaches, players, parents and fans who were watching the game.
What I did was wrong and I am ashamed and embarrassed by my actions. Please forgive me for my indiscretion.
