Early in the year Bully T’s team won most of the games, some by more than others but never did Bully T’s team dominate. When Smart C’s team did win or lose by only a run or two, Bully T would call the other team cheaters and babies. Bully T always lived up to his name of Bully and never exhibited any sportsmanship. Members of his team quickly followed their boorish captain.
Smart C remembered the rules allowed curve balls and was aware that if he could master the curve ball, his team would have a great advantage. He also realized that Bully T would never be able to learn how to throw the curve ball since he was not very adept at any sort of finesse and had no discipline.
Smart C practiced his curve during warmup and at home after school. He quickly mastered the pitch and was able to throw it for strikes. He worked on the pitch with his catcher and in time, a couple of weeks before championship week, he began throwing the curve in games.
At first Bully T just mocked Smart C saying he was not tough enough to just bring the “heat.” Every now and then the catcher was unable to catch the breaker, Bully T would mock the catcher, insulting the catchers intellect and his physical ability.
As championship week neared, Smart C’s team was winning most of the games very handily. Bully T’s team was unable to hit the curve and this just made all of Smart C’s pitches that much better. Bully T started to realize that he stood a very good chance of losing all the games during championship weak.
Bully T tried to master the curve, but realized he was just not capable of playing in that league. Blaming his shortcomings on everybody else but himself, Bully T started to claim the curve was not a legal pitch and it should not be allowed in the championship series. When the play yard monitor was questioned about the legality of the pitch, the play yard monitor simply explained that the pitch had always been allowed and it would be allowed in the championship series. Bully T screamed even louder and said he would have his gang egg the play yard monitors house if he did not change the rules, which Bully T said was cheating anyway.
Bully T cried, whined, and threatened so much that the play yard monitor took the problem to the fair rules committee. The fair rules committee reviewed the situation and came to the conclusion that the rule allowing a curve ball had been in place long before the beginning of the school year and all participants were aware that they could use the pitch. Therefore, the pitch would be allowed in any and all games including the championship series. The legality of the pitch was not dependent on one team mastering the pitch while the other team did not the fair rules committee explained. The championship series would be played and each team had the choice to participate or not, but the rules as previously stated would be enforced, and yes this is fair was the final ruling despite even more childish and boring behavior by Bully T.
