I am at a loss about what to do with my 9 year old and baseball. At this point in time - he seems to be a bit ahead of his peers. Last year, our league asked that he play on an 8U Travel Team because they didn't think it was appropriate for him to play in the recreational league. He did that, did well and enjoyed it, but the time and expense do not work for our family this year.
So I signed him back up for rec and got a call he would be on a 10 & 11 year old team. My husband and I went back and forth and let him try it and he has a really nice coach and is having fun.
After his game this weekend - got a call that some coaches have petioned he goes up to the next age level (11 & 12 year olds) in the spring because he throws too fast and it isn't safe/fair. WTH!!! He just turned 9 and will be 9 for the whole season - he doesn't belong with 12 year olds socially. He LOVES BASEBALL - throws a ball up in the air 24/7
What would you do? I haven't been on MDC in awhile, but always got such good advice here when I had littles :)
