Love the screaming from a real 12 year old. "Oh it's gone!" He's off camera but he's the loud mouth, "scrappy" kid who plays second base. You just know it.

I worked with a youth baseball Org in the nineties. Similar(not quite that large) situation. People woulD make all their kids move to the outfield. Scream things like “hurry up, Vince has to pick up his kids.” Finally a guy asked me about his birth certificate. Told him it was legit. Then he asked me about a death certificate. Short story..checked death certs. Guy was playing his son under a similar named dead cousin. Kid had no idea he was nearly three years older than he thought. They popped up at another park as well.

Just left semis of a 12u tournament featuring a kid who looked like he coukd pkay RB for the Tigers. Insanely athletic and skilled. My son didn’t pitch but he knows the drill when facing these freaks..nothing but curveballs in the dirt. This kid hit a fastball right back at our pitcher who managed to catch it but was so unnerved that coach had to come out to calm him down. There really should be a max height And weight for baseball with kids pitching this close. 12u is the worst from what I’ve seen

I agree with this. When my oldest son played we had a big hitter that could crush the ball. He hit one back to a very small pitcher in allstars that I just knew killed the kid. The ball hit him in the upper thigh just inches away from his man hood. The kid was screaming in pain.

Absolutely fricking disgusting that they make those play ball on an all dirt infield. Turf or not

6’5” at 12 years of age is probably pathological. Hopefully he has had hormones checked.

Dude will be 7 feet tall pretty soon and won't play anymore. It sucks and it's sad but that's how it will go.

That bat sounds like one that I used as a kid...in the early 80’s.

Maybe he should quit being a pussy and play up in age.

You called a 12 year old boy a pussy on an internet message board.
