Balls prohibited in NY

Man who didn't love a good old fashioned game of tackle basketball during recess????

N.Y. school bans balls at recess, cracks down on tag games over safety fears

A rash of playground injuries has prompted one Long Island, N.Y. school to ban balls and require teacher supervision for games like tag.

"Some of these injuries can unintentionally become very serious so we want to make sure our children have fun, but are also protected," Dr. Kathleen Maloney, superintendent of Port Washington Schools, told CBS New York.

The ban at Weber Middle School in Port Washington, N.Y. will apply to footballs, baseballs, soccer balls, lacrosse balls or any other equipment that might harm a child or school friends. Students will be allowed to play with softer Nerf balls.

Rough games of tag or cartwheels will require supervision from a coach, according to the report.

Children without protective gear may experience injuries ranging from bumps and scrapes to head injuries and concussions.

The reported surge of injuries at the school may mirror statistics elsewhere in the country.

Researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center reported in late September that there was a 90 percent increase in the number of children admitted to emergency rooms with sports-related head injuries over the past decade.

An August report from child safety nonprofit Safe Kids Worldwide found 1.35 million emergency room visits each year are caused by sports, the most common being strains, sprains, fractures, bruises and scrapes. Twelve percent of those visits were for concussions, with nearly half of those occurring in children between 12 and 15 years of age.

Studies suggest children need longer recovery times following a concussion or they may face additional health risks.

"One of the biggest risk factors of being injured again is incomplete recovery or rehabilitation," Michael F. Bergeron, executive director of the National Youth Sports Health and Safety Institute, told CBSNews.com in September.

This week, the largest youth sports organizations in the U.S. announced the formation of the National Sports Concussion Coalition to establish best practices with experts on how to diagnose and treat young athletes with head injuries.

However, despite the safety risks, some students and parents feel like the ban is going too far.

"Cartwheels and tag -- I think it's ridiculous they are banning that," one parent said to WCBS.

"Children's safety is paramount, but at the same time, you have to let them live life," added Port Washington parent Ellen Cohen to WCBS.

One sports medicine expert points out there will always be a risk of head injuries and concussions when playing sports or other recess activities, but emphasizing the rules of safe play and using padding when possible can reduce risk.

"While I believe that an outright ban on the use of athletic balls during sports activities is not warranted, adequate supervision of students during recess is critical to ensure safety," Dr. Robert Glatter, director of sports medicine and traumatic brain injury at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, told CBSNews.com in an email.

CBS New York reported other school districts in the area are mulling similar bans.

Back in the early 80s when I lived in Columbia, MO, I was in this 2nd story apartment with a balcony and sliding glass door on the back. It was 4th of July, and me and a couple buddies had been drinking beer all day, and got into a bottle rocket war. Some shot from the balcony to the ground below, some shot back from the ground towards the apartment above. It was big fun until a bottle rocket shot through the open glass door and lodged in my couch, then set it on fire. Ooops.....

back in HS we'd get into bottle rocket wars out on peoples property all the time. We'd be safe and wear eye protection but all else was fair game. Hell we even built our own guns for them. I think I still have my 48 tube launcher I built because bottle rockets were so damn inaccurate. To this day I'm still surprised we didn't light someone's field on fire....

I remember when we got this new whiz-bang awesome jungle gym with all the bells and whistles.....it got installed with a ton of mulch under it. Shit - it made it worse because we then played games trying to push people off because the mulch didn't hurt when you landed on your back lol.

ahhh..good ol days.
My son's school still has the geodesic dome.

If I had one of those in back yard I'd still use it today. There's nothing more relaxing than a good climbaround on a geodesic jungle gym.

Those were a lot of fun...... one other 4th of July entertainment tricks was as as kid, Dad would drive a piece of pipe in the ground at a slight angle. Drop a M-80 down in it, then drop a baseball in it. BOOM! From our back yard to the open yard of our neighbors, you had about 3/4 of a block to gauge the trajectory of the ball. What this did was taught me how to catch a high fly ball, instant baseball skills! The one thing you didn't want as a 8 - 10 year old was to have that ball come down on your head of get your nose!

anyone ever make a potato gun; taped together empty spoup cans; lighter fluid.

little known fact; a potato gun will launch a tennis ball across 4 lanes of I-35 traffic and land in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn.

it's a good way to break the ice on a first date
"Hey....I'm excited for our date. Be sure to wear a skirt, we're going out to a nice place for dinner"

*later*
"Hey...have I shown you my geodesic jungle gym? we should totally hang upside down"
