Little League denies use of yellow ball to boy with visual impairment

One of our clients, Grosse Pointe Woods Little League, has a player named Ryan Huizdos who has a rare a visual impairment due to albinism. His condition causes him to not be able to see a white ball as quickly as other players. It appears he has been using a yellow ball during the season but Little League said he could not do so during the all-star tournament. You can read the article, courtesy of Fox Sports, here. There seem to be some details missing and there was not statement from Little League. What do you think of this?

  1. Guess it’s OK for girls to use yellow balls but not the Boys? Sounds likes someone needs to talk to a lawyer..lol..as long as the ball is a RS-T and is round..why should it matter?
