This is completely ridiculous.......


However, it is an election year, and the politicians are probably afraid to vote against it for fear of being seen as not concerned about the safety of children!


It's not about the issues....it's about getting re-elected!

Aren't these the same people who raise all manner of hysteria about big bad government taking away our liberties because the CIA listens in on phone calls between terrorists in order to prosecute a war?

I guess it is OK to actually take away freedom from ordinary citizens for a feel-good but ineffective effort to protect little Johnny, but not OK to listen in on terrorist plots to protect the entire nation.

Go figure.

Two of our local parks' league rec rules mandate the use of a heart guard and face shield for pitchers in 10U - not a bad idea.

Do we need to start carrying the legislated bat list too? Will those red light cameras start shooting paint balls soon? Do I need to wear a helmet in addition to my seat belt?

Did you notice the 4-2 vote was along party lines.

I say screw them, who are they going to arrest, the 12 yo batter?

These people are dangerous to the country and should be eliminated from ever holding any public office for the sake of the sanctity of the republic of the United States of America

Oh now thats stupid, even thought i live in PA, come on. Wood bats are more dangerous then metal ones. So does that mean if you use a metal bat in a youth league, its not only against league rules, but state law??? What gives the govt such a right. Bahh. If this is the direction this country is going im going to Canada

And the proponent's willingness to exclude softball points out:
- he is just trying to make a fuss
- he knows nothing about softball
- he doesn't think softball matters (not manly enough), part of the boys sports vs. girls sports problem
- he backs down when someone else know more than he does

It's a good thing George Washington and friends didn't try to solve a problem by running away

Wade,
