Let kids be kids

If you aren't getting your fill of watching professional baseball on television, you can tune in to ESPN or ESPN2 and see what appears to be 24-hour coverage of the Little League World Series.

It's one thing for a major network to televise the final series of the year, between the best American team and the best non-American team, as was done in past years. But showing four games per day over a several day period is ridiculous. These kids are far too young for that kind of exposure.

That promotes over inflated egos from both the parents and the kids, along with raising the potential for cheating. Enough is enough. Let's just let kids be kids playing a kids' game.
