Jericho Scott

Nine year-old Jericho Scott throws a fastball 40 mph. At such a short distance Jericho throws so hard that the Youth Baseball League of New Haven has banned his team from playing. Jericho pitches for the Wii Fitness Team, who is 8-0 this season.

Opposing teams parents fear for their kids facing Jericho. Last week, when Jericho took the mound, his opponent just left the field. Jericho's coach, Wilfred Vidro said, “He’s never hurt any one,” Vidro said. “He’s on target all the time. How can you punish a kid for being too good?”

The situation bothers Jericho who says, “I feel sad,” he said. “I feel like it’s all my fault nobody could play.”

Peter Noble, a lawyer for the Youth Baseball League of New Haven, said the only reason in banning Jericho from pitching was that his pitches were too fast.

“He is a very skilled player, a very hard thrower,” Noble said. “There are a lot of beginners. This is not a high-powered league. This is a developmental league whose main purpose is to promote the sport.”

Matt Ryan Video Clips of First NFL Plays

I'm in Atlanta so, obviously, a big Falcons fan. Fans are pretty pumped here about Matt Ryan, but also realize we have a long way to go before we are a playoff team again. It was refreshing to see Ryan play well in his first series in the NFL.
