    It's possible the coach told him too late for it to be safe, but his quote was:

    He was running full speed around the bases. He — his eyes were not affixed on the ball. He did not see the ball coming. I did. Therefore, he was running full speed, but upon my decision and telling him at a safe distance to slide, he was able to do so.

    I dunno, seems to me we were taught the fundamentals growing up including sliding (and I didn't play in high school). The only rules I remember was pitchers couldn't try to throw curve balls in Little League to keep us from screwing up our arms.
