Nine-year-old Jericho Scott is a good baseball player â€” too good, it turns out,” reports the AP.
The right-hander has a fastball that tops out at about 40 mph. He throws so hard that the Youth Baseball League of New Haven told his coach that the boy could not pitch any more. When Jericho took the mound anyway last week, the opposing team forfeited the game, packed its gear and left, his coach said.
Jericho has never hit a batter. Apparently, he has excellent control too. But rival players can’t get a hit when he’s pitching.
