9 year old with a 40 mph fastball, gets the boot.

In our 8-9yr old league we use a pitching machine that is set at 35mph and kids hit it good, we also have kids come up from coaches pitch to fill in and they hit it and they are 7yrs old. 40mph with control for a 9yr old is really good but I don't think it is outstanding.

for real...when i was a kid we learned at that speed when i was 6-7...plus if you don't let the other kids face him they'll never learn how to get any better... the way you learn how to hit 95+ is facing someone that throws that fast until you catch up to them...you keep this up and when those kids get to high school the're going to get spanked around if they can' hit above 80...

argue about the parking lots in the city... not the kids talent

9 year old with a 40 mph fastball, gets the boot.

I've been playing baseball for almost 14 years...and the fact that these people are saying he's "too good" is a joke.....there just upset cause he keeps beating them...at 9 years old everyone in the league can hit a 40 mph fatsball..at least down here they can...

as for someone getting hurt by him. Its hardball someone is going to get hit by it eventually...plus if you send him up the older kids would have a hay day with him...

grown-ups need to stop playing their lives thru their kids...it stupid... when i was 10 we had three guys that could throw almost 60...all we did was take bets on who would get a hit off them first

this is stupid your punishing a kid for being too good...whats that going to teach them? "dont excell"? that's good motivation...
