When I first saw this at HotAir, my first instinct was, "Awww, h311 - this nation is lost." But, then I I realized that we were talking from the heart of YankeeLand, Connecticut for goodness sake.
These people soak in a culture that bans dodgeball, hunting, all things good and normal, and hugs about every mindless weak-a55 PC project you can think of. They then tax and regulate themselves into oblivion, move down South and spread their vile lameness. Typical Kerry voters.
Nine-year-old Jericho Scott is a good baseball player — too good, it turns out.Sure, we have a little of that imported YankeeThink down South, but a kid who can throw at 40mph at age 9 WITH control!! Heck, we'd build a league around him.
The right-hander has a fastball that tops out at about 40 mph. He throws so hard that the Youth Baseball League of New Haven told his coach that the boy could not pitch any more. When Jericho took the mound anyway last week, the opposing team forfeited the game, packed its gear and left, his coach said.
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. They say Jericho's coach, Wilfred Vidro, has resigned.
But Vidro says he didn't quit and the team refuses to disband. Players and parents held a protest at the league's field on Saturday urging the league to let Jericho pitch.
"He's never hurt any one," Vidro said. "He's on target all the time. How can you punish a kid for being too good?"
Jerico - get your parents together, pack up the U-haul, and move on down to Dixie. We've got a league waiting for 'ya. Coach Vidro, you too. Leave those backstabbing, envy filled, weak-a55 Yankee wannabee whiners behind. You will never have to say this again.
The controversy bothers Jericho, who says he misses pitching.Adults ruining another kid because he makes theirs look bad. Pathetic.
"I feel sad," he said. "I feel like it's all my fault nobody could play."
