But I finally found something that spun me into a new demention of pissed that I have never seen in my life…
I read the article on CNN about the 9 year old boy that was told he pitched too good play in a local league.
All I can say if WHAT THE FUCK??!!! This kid obviously works hard, and can pitch really well, but they arent gonna let him play because he can throw 40 mph. You win some you lose some, but let the damn kid play!
If your team doesnt want to even TRY what kind of message are you sending to kids. Oh well obviously he is too good to even play against. Its better to quit than to go against the odds. Is this the message we want to teach our kids? No! Being against the best can turn a regular kid into a hero. SOMEONE can beat him, you just have to keep trying! Isn’t THAT what we were taught growing up? Do you not learn more from failure than just winning?
Or is this more about the fact that this great player was not on the team of the defending league champion and therefor they could not win against him and thus all this shit was brought up. How dare the league allow this, oh wait probably because the team sponsor pays the league. If they cant have him, no one will.
Oh you can play shortstop. Is that the shit you tell Nolan Ryan? Sorry you are too good of pitcher for your age, go play against older people who stand a chance. Sorry you were born too early for your skill.
CRY ME A FUCKING RIVER. LET THE KID PLAY.
