The experience sounds grueling: "Anthony Scotti, hobbling with a bad hamstring, grounded into two double plays," reports the Post. What the hell is a 12-year-old doing with a bad hamstring? Thank God there were no mid-outfield crashes or beanballs, and at least the lads have a few days of summer left to romp and play, provided they can get enough oxycontin from their team doctor to help them over the pain of injuries and overwork.
We hope all these youngsters have good sports dads rather than psycho sports dads, and the psychological wherewithal to deal with the agents and shoe marketers who'll be cruising their schoolyards in September.
