Baseball Dad Starts Consulting Firm to Tell Coaches How to Do Their Job
YPSILANTI, MI—One local parent is hoping to make it big by combining his entrepreneurial spirit with his controlling personality. As of last week, he has launched a new consulting firm, Listen or My Kid Quits, LLC—a company that tells coaches how to do their job.
Alex Johnson is a family man who loves watching baseball, his son, and having his way. He admits he doesn’t have any baseball or coaching experience, but that’s not stopping him from chasing his dreams.
“I think I really have a great idea here,” explained Johnson. “Who wouldn’t want to get better at their job? I haven’t been happy with a single coach my kid’s played for so I know there’s definitely a market for my business.”
His idea came after his son batted ninth for three straight games last week, when he “clearly deserves to bat seventh.” The coach also gave his son the bunt sign twice in the same week, demonstrating he doesn’t know a dinger hitter when he sees one.
“I’ve probably logged 11 hours of watching baseball coaching YouTube videos,” claims Johnson, “If that doesn’t make me an expert then I don’t know what does.”
When asked how he hopes to get clients he said, “I’m just going to show up at tournaments and start yelling out what the coaches are doing wrong. Then after the game I’ll give them my card and tell them to call me if they like what they heard.”
When asked why he doesn't just become a coach himself he said, "I'd rather just do it from the stands."
