Tony La Russa (@TonyLaRussa) is a PCA National Advisory Board Member, three-time World Series Champion manager and Baseball Hall of Famer. He currently serves as Chief Baseball Analyst/Advisor for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Sports provides such an incredible opportunity for kids to learn life lessons, and La Russa reminds parents in this clip to help their child get the most of their sports experience. If parents are honest and encouraging, rather than demeaning and critical, their child will be able to get more from sports in the long run.
