Parents behaving badly while kids are playing sports is just a sad turn of events and any little thing can set tempers off. Even a kid umpire.
That was the case in Lakewood, California after a group of 15-20 adults broke into a violent brawl after one parent became enraged about calls being made by the 13-year-old umpire.
“I think the saddest part in all of this is we’re talking about a 7-year-old baseball game,” said police spokesman John Romero, per KDVR. “I think it’s the parents who have to grow up.”
The police also noted that “Several people have already been cited in this fight and injuries were reported.”
Just a horrible situation no matter how you look at it.
