Default 9-year-old boy told he's too good to pitch

Way to discourage someone who is talented. That is ridiculous to me.

My first thought was that he should start pegging kids so they can find out that it doesn't hurt that bad, or for that long.

I'm completely fine with them upping him to the next age bracket or something like that but just to say he's too good and he's not allowed to play and then to reassign the team he was on??? That sounds very suspicious to me.
