FanDuel - WFBC

April 17, 2008

School team hit for 66 runs in two innings: Opponents Shunshukan were officially credited with a 9-0 victory, giving the scoreline a tinge of respectability for the luckless Kawamoto school.

What coach allows their team to run up score to 66-0 in the second inning? That embarrassing and downright obscene.

What coach allows their team to run up score to 66-0 in the second inning? Wasn't that the number the Yankees put up against my Red Sox last night? That was obscene.

250 pitches for a high school kid? That's freaking child abuse!

What a great society we live in. They scored 66 runs, they should GET 66-0 as their scoreline.

They scored 66 runs, they should GET 66-0 as their scoreline. Except, the game was abandoned/forfeit, and the rules state those games go down as 9-0. If the other team didn't show up, 9-0. If the other team protests a call and refuses to take the field, 9-0 (even if they were winning). It's hard to argue with rules as they are written.

What makes me wonder is if your kid is getting shelled, don't most coaches make a pitching change... duh... Do something to shake things up... And 250 pitches, what the hell... Thats enough to know why the team isn't doing anything... The coach is clueless...

What do you do? Ask a kid to strike out? You would think the law of averages would take over at some point. It'd be neat to see one of those "hit" charts that show where the hits were going on the field. Are they all pulls, or ground balls, homeruns?

What do you do? Ask a kid to strike out? Not necessarily strikeout, but you have the kids swing at bad pitches. I was involved in games like that. It got to the point where our coach told us to just swing at anything close to the plate. You're more likely to hit a pop fly or ground out at least.

They should institute a 10 run mercy rule like they had in my little league days. And get a pitcher not a belly-itcher. Maybe also some batters and not turkey platters.
