From the Washington Free Beacon:

Little League baseball coaches in Alexandria, Virginia, will be required to take a diversity, equity, and inclusion course this month.

In an email to coaches on Thursday, Alexandria Little League board president Sherry Reilly announced the league’s partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance. All Little League coaches and board members were asked to cancel practices in order to attend the Sports Can Battle Racism workshop on May 24. …

“We want kids to have a positive youth character building experience, and resources and training that empower youth coaches and parents,” Casey Miller, spokesperson for the Positive Coaching Alliance, told the Free Beacon. “How we define culture is based on how we dive into the ‘we’ piece about that statement. What does it mean to be a part of the we? Each person, no matter what background or what they look like, should feel a part of the we.”

Yeah, there’s that. Or… Little Leaguers could just widen their circle of friends by playing baseball.
