Not only do we have fans behaving badly, we also have out of control parents running amuck. A knock-down, drag-out battle royale between more than a dozen parents and coaches at a kids’ Little League broke out according to the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. Video of the brawl in Stanton, Kentucky posted to Facebook showed at least 12 adults involved, many of them shouting obscenities.
Charges may be filed.
Children on the teams, ranging from 5 to 7 years old, were said to be crying after the melee broke out.
Umps called the game after the fight broke out, according to local CBS affiliate WKYT.
Witnesses of the little league game say the fight caused the game to be called. They say kids were crying, there was no trophy and there was no medal ceremony. https://t.co/5RxsaNWk8q

A transcript of a 911 call described people “getting pretty wild at the T-ball field,” and having a fistfight in the middle of the diamond.
“[W]e have them separated now, but they might do it in the parking lot again,” said the caller, asking the dispatcher to send cops immediately.
The Coach took to Facebook to defend himself, writing:
“If you’re gonna post videos and call me a POS Coach, why don’t you show the whole video or tell the entire story! I never touched anyone. Yes, I was upset over a bad call, but I would never fistfight anyone in front of kids! I will stand up for my team 10/10 times, and you tell me one coach who wouldn’t?!?!… So I guess the other team didn’t like me disputing the call and their coach threw his hat at another coach on my team, and then he got in my face! So get your facts straight!!!”
Helicopter parents are the worst.
Not sure how society has devolved into this.
