A youth baseball umpire was brutally attacked by a coach during a game in Branchburg earlier this month, leaving the umpire with a broken jaw that required extensive dental surgery, according to Brian Delahant, the league president.
quote:

The attack occurred during a 13-and-under U.S. Amateur Baseball League tournament game and involved the beating of a 72-year-old umpire, the league said.

Leading up to the attack, the coach began arguing with the umpire over a call and was ejected from the game. The coach then approached the umpire, punched him in the face and fled the scene, according to the league.

The umpire’s jaw was fractured in two places and wired shut during surgery, the league said.

“Even as police and EMT’s were providing medical attention to the umpire, other parents from the same team were heard shouting expletives at the umpire and saying things like, ‘He deserved it,’” according to a post from the league on the USABL’s Facebook page.

Look it up and check out the video. You have a 72 year old white umpire being decked by a much younger and larger black man. Now if the shoe was on the other foot it would be all over the one sided liberal news media now wouldn't it?

Coached youth football for 4 years. Parents were the worst to deal with.

I never experience such trash in my life until my son started playing “travel bawl.” Those tournaments make Talladega look like Churchill downs.

And we wonder why this world is full of idiot self-centered pieces of shite, they are coached and parented by these exact type of people.

My kids play Cal Ripken League county ball. No travel ball at all. We ran into a team made up of half travel ball players and those parents were the rudest nastiest parents and coaches we came across.

Not saying he deserved it, but I'm curious what led up to the fight

What an idiotic response. You are probably one of those idiotic parents that everyone talks about. No reason to do that regardless of what was said.

Trash people. All colors, all income levels, all trashy. There really is concern for this country's future.
