9-year-old boy told he's too good to pitch

This one comes from the "hard to believe file"....

Jericho Scott is nine years old and plays baseball. He possesses a blazing fastball and is so good that local little league officials in New Haven, Connecticut have told him that he cannot pitch anymore.

Here's the story.

Playing sports is about winning and unfortunately losing. Banishing a stand out athlete sends a powerful message that mediocrity is more important than excellence.

Let's hope this call gets over turned.
