Too Much Stress for Little Leaguers?

This insightful article posts the serious question of whether the National broadcast and pressure put on young athletes (12 and under) at the annual little league world series is truly too much for children.  With day to day broadcasts on the nationwide networks of ESPN and ABC I believe that it is truly too much for such young athletes.  A simple mistake in any of these high stakes games may leave a child scarred for life, along with being able to relive the memory in full HDTV.  I believe this event should be toned down; cutthroat parents and packed stands are visuals that should be saved for professionals, not children.
