THOSE WITH LITTLE LEAGUERS: please tell me you've never had to go through this shit.

When i was seventeen years-old (four years ago), i was employed by the local newspaper to write sports articles.... This summer, when I came back home, I was asked by the editor if I could fill in for the current sportswriter who is taking a month off. I agreed because I could use a little money.

Today, I was handed one of the gnarliest score-sheets I have ever seen and was forced to write a story on it. It was a Little League softball game, and the second inning consisted of a 22-run shellacking. At one point, the poor girl that was pitching loaded bases and proceeded to WALK IN FOURTEEN RUNS IN A ROW (they left the same girl on the rubber the whole time!). And, the team had a grand total of TWO hits in the inning (it's very likely they were actually errors that were scored as hits). the game ended in a 38-4 ass-mongering.

It reminded me of a Little League baseball game I wrote about when i was seventeen that literally ended in a 53-0 ass-raping.

Its gotta be hard for parents to sit through this... and how demoralizing is this for the kids?? holy shit.

any of you guys go through this?

I didn't go through this personally, but when I was in little league there was a team that lost to a team 38-1, only to turn around and beat the same team 5-3 later in the year.

I was on the bad end of a 36-2 loss when I was 10. That was a long 3 hours.

I'm thinking the coach for the winning team told them not to take the bat off the shoulder. To me, that's bush league. I can see it for a couple of runs, but then you just got to say swing at it regardless to try not to completely demoralize the kid pitching.

i played on a team one year that was pretty good when i was ten or eleven...

whenever we built up leads of 20 or more, our coach made us go to the dish left-handed. happened three times that season.

That's why there are 10 run rules.

If you have to post it, post the bare minimums, and move on. I've done the triad - scorekeeper, umpire, writer, and sometimes it's not fun. Had to talk to coaches one game because one team didn't have a pitcher that could keep from hitting the batters. Walked 10 runs one ining, switched pitchers, walked in another 10 runs the next ining with a different pitcher that hit everybody, but he hit them harder. Couldn't call 10 run rule until after the 4th ining. I felt for the coaches, parents and the pitchers, as well as the kids that got hit.

when I played it was 10 runs after 4 innings.

Though I was on a team that was good so I never saw the bad side of it except in this tournament one time when I was 11 and we had to play 14 year olds.

They whomped us 15-4.

I played In the Little league all stars and we got Mercyed twice to get eliminated. They never let anyone get bigger than a 10 point lead. Our first one was called in the second inning 10 to 0.
