HS Baseball Player Who Never Practiced Shocked After Getting Cut, Filing Lawsuit
LA MIRADA, CA--A sophomore retired baseball player plans to file a civil lawsuit against La Mirada High School after being cut from its JV baseball team. After spending the entire winter practicing once a week and playing video games three hours a day, he has no idea why he didn’t make the team. Jacob Flask, 15, is citing racism as the primary reason for his mistreatment.
“I trained hard this winter and had a great tryout,” explained Flask. “There was literally no reason for them to cut me. The coach hated me from the beginning.”
The La Mirada JV head coach, Jim Lancer remembered Jacob’s tryout well. “He tried out at shortstop, and he only fielded 3 out of 10 balls cleanly. Then at the plate, he struggled to make contact and when he did he didn’t hit the ball out of the infield once.”
Veronica Flask, Jacob’s mom, is the one leading the charge on the civil suit. “My Jacob is way good enough to be on this baseball team. In fact, he might be too good! He worked so hard for two hours per week every week week all winter! The coach is definitely racist against white boys. There’s no other logical conclusion.”
Coach Lancer, himself a white male, offered no comment on the civil suit and allegations of racism. He simply pointed at his face.
Since being cut, Jacob has decided to retire from baseball in favor of playing video games part time while he finishes his high school career. “Now that I won’t be spending so much time training for baseball, I can spend time on what really matters in life,” he commented.
Jacob will long be remembered by his parents as the two-time Little League all-star who didn’t get his chance. Perhaps the world will never know what could have been.
