    I would assume that recklessness is a nebulous concept when considering a common sports play. How in the world could you determine it to be reckless?

    Perhaps by suggesting that a runner slide when he's two feet away from the plate? (I don't know, I know nothing about baseball and sliding, but there appears to be some "method" for knowing when not to tell a kid to slide). I look at it from something like gymnastics. You have a 10 year old who has never done a dismount from a balance beam that involves a flip in the air. Then a coach, wanting to win the meet, tells this 10 year old to "go for it" in competition for "the team" and she breaks her neck. Is that reckless?
