You may or may not have heard of this, but this is what I call "negative" sportsmanship. See link below with details. http://www.modbee.com/sports/story/408551.html Many questions abound.... Why are the parents upset with this kid pitching? Is it proper to take anything away from kids that may make them fail? This kids not wild, so there is no safety issue. Who runs this league? Why do they cave to the complaints of a couple of parents? How can you ban a kid from doing his best? . After all, we don't what our kid to be scared when they are batting or maybe fail?
