Baseball Dad Pursues Career in Politics, Volunteers as Travel Ball Head Coach

WASHINGTON, DC—A local baseball dad has taken the chance to make his lifelong dream a reality this week. Greg Albert took his first steps to becoming a career politician when he volunteered to be the head coach of the 11U Virginia Bobcats

“Growing up in the DC area, I’ve always wanted to be president, or at least a member of congress,” explained Greg, “Since travel ball involves over-promising [playing time], satisfying the demands of special interest groups [parents], and always doing what makes my own kid happy, I see it as a natural stepping stone in the political world.”

When asked what he plans to accomplish in his first year of office as the Bobcats head coach, Albert said he plans to tell kids they’ll get to pitch and play their favorite position, spin every loss so that it never seems he's at fault, and do whatever necessary to make the rich parents happy. Sounds like he was born for this.

“I’m a firm believer that it’s not about winning or losing per se—it’s about sticking around another year so I can get some press and my kid can play shortstop and bat third,” Albert said matter-of-factly, “You don’t even really need to develop kids either. Just have them play some crappy tournaments and they’ll think they’re the Yankees.”

After climbing the ladder in youth baseball for a few years, Albert plans to run for congress using the same strategies he learns in youth sports. If he stays consistent with his current political coaching approach, he’ll have my vote.
