My son is very good at some things but

I have an 11 year old that is caught in some politics.  He's a great pitcher, and a poor batter.  Right now, kids with much higher ERAs are playing because they have a better batting average.  with four coaches, there are four kids who end up playing, regardless of how they perform.  My son is not jealous of the other kids at all, but he feels like quitting.  It is that the coaches don't even speak to him.  I've tried to ask my son's coaches to speak with him and give him encouragement.  He's not getting played at all and feels like he's being punished.  Is it too much to ask for these volunteer coaches, who have their own jobs, families, and sons on the team to provide both instruction and care for my son?
