Participation Trophies: Everyone’s A Winner?

Scott, LA (KADN) — J.L. Malbrew is an All-Star for the Boudin Pigs. He is ten years old. His team finished the regular season undefeated so he won metal. He plays second base and his favorite player is Cubs infielder Javier Biaz.

“He can play any position and I hope to be like him,” J.L. said.

Kids at the Scott park league don’t receive participation trophies after T-ball. J.L.’s Dad Derrick isn’t a fan of these types of trophies.

“We definitely don’t believe in giving everyone a trophy,” Derrick Malbrew said. “Some coaches will do it. My philosophy has always been if you come out in first or second we’ll do it but if not. What did you do to get better? How can you prepare for next year?”
