Kid Banned From Youth Baseball For Pitching Too Fast
Posted on September 12, 2008Jericho Scott's parents are upset that the Youth Baseball League decided to ban him from the pitching. They claim his 40 mph fastball is too fast for the league but the poor 9-year-old kid wants to play. It's cool to be that much better than your peers but it is sad to not be able to play. Maggie Rodriguez reports in this video from CBS. Fox News, ESPN and the New York Times have all covered the Jericho's story. There's also a Wikipedia entry.
