Punished for being GOOD!

Well the school year has started and school and extra-curriculum activities well increase over the months. But this is got to be the most interesting story I have read in awhile.

A 9 year old baseball pitcher has a fastball that tops speeds of 4o MPH, WOW! The right-handed baseball pitcher Jericho Scott has a mean pitch. To good for the league he is in. Other baseball teams are siting safety factors as to not allowing Jericho to pitch.

Officials for the three-year-old league, which has eight teams and about 100 players, said they will disband Jericho’s team, redistributing its players among other squads, and offered to refund $50 sign-up fees to anyone who asks for it.

Being that the league is for promoting and learning environment on the basic levels of baseball they say Jericho is too advanced for the league.

They are asking for Jericho’s parents to remove him from the league and disband his team.

Man oh man this is something, huh?

What I think……. What I see here is opportunity, start your own league of more advance players or better yet a traveling team. Yes it would require some work, but there are kids that are more advanced and should have the opportunity to showcase their talents. Since when do we tell kids you are too good so you can’t participate!
