Boy banned for pitching too fast

Saw this article on msn:

http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/8495030?MSNHPHMA

This is why we have 18 year old immortal badasses walking around this country. Why would any sane parent want to prevent their child from becoming a better player? One of the basic fundamentals of any sport is this: if you want to get better, you play against better people. I think those parents who expressed "concerns" should get an ass beating and have their kids slapped a couple times for good measure just to prove a point.

*rant off*

yeah i think thats bullshit....When i was growing up playing ball, i wanted to play against the best, even if i was younger by 5+ years.....When i turned 13 i started playing in a Mexican american league in dallas, and most of those guys were 18 years or older....

You gotta feel for that kid.....

Kid is 9 and can pitch 40 mph. Even then, some kids develop faster than others. I remember one kid I played little league with couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Ended up becoming a monster in high school. What if this kid tops out at 40? Give the other kids time to catch up and see where their skills are. Some parents are fucking choads.

He is 9 and pitches 40mph.

Sounds like he needs more competition. Send him to a bigger league so he can improve his other skills. A win for him and a big FUCK YOU to whiny parents.

Buying dogs kills.

I don't know what the big deal is. It must be that new way of thinking that is going on like not keeping score in games. I guess the experts think that losing causes some sort of issue for kids. One of the most important lessons for kids playing sports is sportsmanship. Being able to win and not rub it in your opponets face or lose without whining is right up there with teamwork IMO. When I was 10, there was a left-handed pitcher who could throw a curve ball that broke about 2 ft off the plate. You didn't hear parents or players crying. What it did do is cause us to practice more.
