Hey. You Give 'Em Hell Out There. You Give 'Em Damn Hell. By Chip Grillhard, Jersey Youth Sluggers

Published Monday, October 31st, 2022

Hey. You. You give ‘em hell out there, okay? You give ‘em damn hell.
I know it’s been a tough year. I know better than anyone. But you? You’ve got somethin’, kid. Somethin’ special. You’ve got moxie comin’ outta your ears, I can smell it from a mile away, and I know it’s scary, I know it is. But we’re all scared. All of us. And bein’ brave? Bein’ brave ain’t about not bein’ scared. It’s about bein’ scared and givin’ ‘em hell anyway.
Look at me. I said, LOOK AT ME. Look here, at me and nothin’ but me. I’ve gotta tell you, you’re more than you give yourself credit for. Loosen your goddamn shoulders, kid, hold your back up tall n’ proud, just like your ma taught you when you couldn’t hardly walk.
You get out there and you give ‘em straight hell, because you’ve got anger burnin’ inside you like I’ve never seen, and you gotta use that anger to make things better or you’re gonna burn yourself out, kid. I’ve seen it happen a million times. You’ve got an opportunity to change things. For the better. Hey. Don’t waste it.
And, hey, remember to look ‘em in the eyes. And when you look ‘em in the eyes, remember to give ‘em hell. Damn hell.
