I don't know about you guys but I find ESPN's wall-to-wall coverage of the Little League World Series to be more than somewhat disturbing. I'm generally not a moralist by nature but I'm just so turned off by watching kids televised as if they were professionals. It doesn't seem right to me, it feels like too much pressure is being placed on them too soon. How can they just kick back and have fun?
This year, the coverage is more pronounced than ever as highlights make their make nightly onto Sportscenter and Baseball Tonight. I simply turn the channel. I just won't watch it.
