    I don't keep up with pre-pubescent sports controversies, but thanks for letting us know.

    This rule has been in place for a while. It's his fault that he didn't follow it.

    Meh, they weren’t going to win anyway. Their pitchers suck.

    A rule that nobody else has a problem following.

    I ump many levels of baseball from 8U travel, 10u rec all the way up to men's leagues. Only leagues I've seen this rule in are youth rec leagues, but in-house leagues all just bat everyone anyway. Weird that they have it in the LLWS, but if it's there (and I'm pretty sure it's been there for years if not decades) you've got to be a retard to not follow it.

    BTW, guarantee it was an opposing coach that called it out and not a parent. Coaches in high level youth ball are infuriatingly obnoxious with trying to win by their coaching brilliance.

    Youth sports are not for making friends, learning how to be a part of a team, or getting exercise.

    Youth sports are an investment to ensure your kids receieve an athletic scholarship. This golden ticket of a scholarship will save parents lots of money in college expenses and save Timmy from years of,crushing student debt.

    Once you realise that youth sports is about money, you will be more at ease.

    Been an official LL rule since I was young, 2 innings and an at bat

    Remember this isn't AAU, Select, Babe Ruth or American Legion ball, its little league

    So why play? Why not a picnic followed by a trophy ceremony where everyone gets a trophy?

    this rule has existed for decades . my little league team had to follow it in the 90's. it is a known rule and he should have followed it. little league has all sorts of rules like the mercy rule it is part of tournament play.

    that rule has existed for decades it would mean kids were pussies back then too if we use this logic.
