I won't watch the Little League World Series anymore because of the abuse of pitcher's arms. And the announcers condone it by saying how tough the kid is when he throws 100+ pitches and comes back on short rest. It's terrible.
Continuing on that note, the College World Series is even worse. Some of the pitchers in this year's College World Series threw 130, 140, 150 pitches. One starter threw 400 pitches over 3 starts in 9 days. And, once again, he gets kudos for his "toughness." A couple years down the road and a Tommy John surgery later, the kid will probably wish he hadn't been so "tough" back then.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
