    Yeah, I'm sure in the end this will work out in the kid's favor.

    The fact that this even occurred shows how things are working out against those with skills that make them more proficient than others. Is this really the attitude that we want to develop in America ?

    And so historians will say of us:

    Had the Americans truly encouraged their young men to pitch a blistering fast ball, their once grand empire might never have fallen

    I am trying to remember my age grouping but a 9 yr old pitching at this speed can expect....torn rotor cuff.....and a bad elbow.

    now unless the batters are using full safety equipment a 40 mph pitch is too much. hit in the chest it can stop the heart of the batter and kill them. not many teams wear protective vests. or have flaps coming down off helmets...this is friggin little league .... let the kids be kids...and pitching at that speed is crazy and will tear his arm and shoulder up.

    people there are reason for some rules that just go beyond winning.....some one should be thanked for keeping the kid from ruining his arm or worse hitting some kid with a fast hard ball....

    Had Americans never mandated affirmative action programs, their once grand empire might never have fallen

    Hey, Hockey Puck, are government mandated affirmative action programs your excuse for being a loser? :lol:
