    Youth Baseball Team Banned Because Pitcher Too Good

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,410162,00.html
    A Connecticut youth baseball team with a phenomenal 9-year-old pitcher has been disqualified because its team is too good.

    The team, Will Power Fitness, has an 8-0 record thanks in large part to pitcher Jericho Scott, the New Haven Register reports. His pitching is so fast and accurate, the Liga Juvenil De Baseball De New Haven asked the team's coach, Wilfred Vidro, to replace him so he wouldn't frighten other players.
    I don't know how you all feel about this but it makes me mad. You are always going to face people in life that are better than you and maybe scare you. Especially bosses. Get used to it! It's a part of life.

    I was reading about this yesterday.
    I would think that kids would like to play against this kid's pitching, would be more challenging.
    Come on, a 40 mph heater is only a half speed changeup in the big league.
    Hopefully he gets to play, that situation is pathetic.

    How can you punish a kid for being too good? This is unbelievable. I would sue the shit out of somebody.

    While we are at it, lets break Tom Brady's legs to even it out for the rest of the NFL league.

    Gifted kids should be praised, not restricted.
