The biggest scourge on youth sports continues to be Little League parents.
Forget throwing curveballs at too young an age or stale Big League Chew. The biggest problem that faces Little League are the parents who can't watch six innings of baseball like normal human beings.
We bring you the worst the land of 60-feet basepaths has to offer in a full-on brawl occurring after a recent youth baseball game.
Ben Wright of The Ledger-Enquirer has all the deets on a deplorable scene.
By the time police separated the crowds and cooler heads prevailed, a fan supporting Northern and another supporting Harris County were each charged with one count each of disorderly conduct in the 7:30 p.m. clash. Charles Davidson, 38, of Midland and Iram King, 36, of Cataula were ordered to appear in Columbus Recorder's Court for a 2 p.m. Aug. 16 hearing.
It's all over music, allegedly.
A report obtained by The Ledger-Enquirer issues Davidson was playing music loudly out by right field. That's when a woman named Rose King in the report and Iram King came over and demanded the music be turned down.
Davidson allegedly complied but heated words were exchanged, and that is when a light-hearted game turned into a reason for two men to be arrested.
I am not sure how the rest of these men became involved, but every last one of them has me thinking there needs to be a sign outside every last Little League field in the nation. It would read simply, No Parents Allowed.
