LLWS Pitcher Shakes Off Catcher’s Sign With Utter Disdain, Immediately Regrets It

The Little League World Series is about to begin in Williamsport, and I won't go into all the different divisions because there's only one with which we're all familiar -- 11- through 13-year-old Majors. It's not baseball really, unless baseball is no leadoffs, a 40-foot pitching distance and unpredictable hormone surges that take the place of steroids.
This looks like the Maine-Massachusetts game in the Regionals last week, a game won by Mass. 11-0. This pitcher for Maine looked uber confident when he shook off the catcher's sign -- how could he even suggest a curve? -- but then paid for his hubris by giving up a homer. Oh well, since it was on national TV, it will only haunt him until he's 70 or so.
