I'm afraid to tell my dad I was cut from the team

I've played baseball since I was a little kid and I always thought I was pretty good at it. I had to try out this year so I spent the whole off-season working out and practicing so that I wouldn't lose the skills I've developed. I tried out, I did my absolute best, and I thought I did a good job, but I was cut from the team. I really wanted to be on the team not just to play baseball but because I have a hard time making friends and I wanted to be a part of something. It felt like I got hit in the stomach when I found out I was cut.
The hardest part is that I'm afraid to tell my dad that I didn't make the team. I know he will be so mad at me for failing. He is always pushing me so hard and I feel like nothing is ever good enough for him. I know that he's going to be so disappointed and so mad if he finds out that I got cut.
Ever since I didn't make the team I've been staying after school each day so that my dad doesn't know I was cut. Instead of going to baseball practice I spend my time in the library reading books. I go home a few hours later so that he won't know. I want to tell him but I don't want him to be mad at me and disappointed.
