9 year old with a 40 mph fastball, gets the boot.

What's wrong with letting the kid be a kid. He should be playing and associating with others in his own age group. The NBA has taken the steps to prohibit drafting straight out of high school no matter how good you are. This country is way too obsessed with sports as the ultimate answer to being a success in life and young children are often pushed into sports mainly to satisfy the false egos of their parents. Should this ruling be carried over to all sports like you can't play highschool football because you're too good, or basketball, tennis, swimming etc? Come on, sports is a GAME and fortunately for a few, it can provide a generous income but should it be the driving force to a persons exixtance?
