By now, I'm sure most, if not all, of the sports world has heard about the 9-year old from Conn. If you haven't here's the link.

Basically here it is. The kid threw the ball too fast, so the league banned him from pitching and wants to disbanned the team. I've never heard of such a thing.

Leauge President: "Son, your too good..."

Kid: "Thank you."

L.P.: "Let me finished. Son, your too good...therefore you are not allowed to pitch anymore and we are going to make your team split up."

Kid: "Why?"

L.P.: "Because nobody can hit off of you. You might be the next Roger Clemens, you know, back when he played with Boston. But it is unfair to other kids; they can't hit the ball because you pitch too fast."

What would have happened if Brett Farve's, Payton Manning, or Tom Brady's league president of pop warner told him this? He is too good. So what? Your going to punish him for being better then everybody else? Is that anymore fair than the other kids not being able to hit off of him?
