Back to school and back to the diamond

The kids are getting school supplies and new clothes excited and looking forward to a new year, hoping that this year will be better than last year. This will be good for most kids until about the end of October and then they will be doing the Christmas vacation count down.  This time of year is also fall ball time when  kids of all ages start hitting the diamond again after a long and hot summer of playing baseball. The question I want to ask you is when kids are starting to play ball every summer starting at 4 years old is there a such thing as to much?  I am a super fan of baseball at all levels and can't get enough of it but with baseball during the school year, summer , and fall is that to much on  young bodies? I understand that kids on the high school level need to play more games especially  the kids that have a desire and talent to play in college, but when we have kids in the lower grades throwing there arms out before they ever throw there first high school pitch it has to be talked about. I am also seeing some kids that were great in the early years start to burnout from playing so many games for so long. Don't get me wrong most kids who play baseball believe in let's play two and I am one  who will sit in the hot sun and watch both games but this blog is about the good, the bad and the ugly of baseball, so lets talk about it.
