Too Good To Play

Source...

Apparently, this kid (who, by the way, is only nine years old) has been told that he cannot play little league baseball because he is too good.

If you read the article, I can see why they would ban him. In little league, you're supposed to be able to get used to the sport. But when you come up to bat and a kid can throw a ball 40mph it defeats the purpose. I mean, I can barely throw 55, and this kid is nearly showing me the door.

What are your thoughts? I just personally think it's kind of stupid.

I was throwing high 80's low 90's in high school. I think its wrong to ban him because he has a good arm.

I can't really throw all that well... But I think that is dumb to not let a kid play!

they should be banned for banning that kid! Just because he could be in Major League at the age of 5 doesn't mean he should get banned!

I just think he needs to move up to the big leagues. Nothing says that he can't just play in the higher skill area.

Htym is an unknown quantity at this point

Well, they do have their reasons.
I'm not saying that it was wrong to ban the kid. Prehaps he should've (Could've) tried to throw a bit slower? Those baseballs (Even at 40mph) can hurt someone. More so, a small child.
Overall, yes. I think they shouldn't have banned the child. Prehaps he'll join another league? I doubt that it's the only league around. (Even for 9 year olds.)

I think ultimately little league is supposed to be about fun.
And a kid who shows all the other nine year olds up makes the game unfair, and ruins the fun for the less talented players.

Imagine if a nine year old basketball team had a freak kid that was 6'2".
Would that be fair if he could just hold his hands up and no one could reach him?

I just think, for the sake of balance, the kid should be moved to an older league.
It would be an honor for him...
