FL - Florida State University quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner
Chris Weinke has decided to forego the NFL draft and instead complete
his 2 years of Little League eligibility. According to Little
League rules, Weinke who left baseball to play Pee Wee football when
he was 8, can still compete in the 9-10 year old division.
In his first game of the Tallahassee winter league with the VFW
128 Yankees, Weinke pitched a perfect game and hit 7 home runs. VFW
128 Yankee's Coach Jason Lickliter said, "He's in a class all
by himself out there. He's a man among boys."
Danny Kreiger of the opposing Dairy Queen Tigers said, "I have a poster of him in
my room, but I'm tearing it down after he called me a four-eyed panty
Parents of the children of the opposing team felt Weinke's presence
was unfair. "This is ridiculous. He's 3 times my kid's
age and size. I probably could take it except he kept calling
my son a pansy ass."
Weinke was unfazed by the criticism. "I'm playing
by the rules. The league says I can play so I'm playing," he
said. "As for the taunting, these kids are just
mad I struck them all out. What a bunch of crybabies."
