A New Jersey little league might have just cracked the code on how to teach a-hole parents who confront umpires a lesson. Per USA TODAY...

A new rule this season in the Deptford Township Little League requires spectators who seem to think they could do a better job than the volunteer umpires on the field to come out and prove it. Anyone in the stands who confronts an ump during a game must themselves umpire three games before they're allowed back as a spectator.

"They think that the call was bad, which always amazes me that they can see a strike better over there than the umpire can one foot in back of them," league president Don Bozzuffi told the TV station. The abuse has been so bad, Bozzuffi said, two volunteer umpires quit last week.

This is a great idea. There's nothing more irritating than that one parent who runs their mouth the whole game shouting at the kids and umpires.

I like the spirit of "see if you can do it better" but this will backfire and be a terrible outcome. Dude gets belligerent drunk at a bar, so you give him the keys to the car?

better idea - if the parent doesn't fulfill the requirement, the kid cannot play - and is not eligible to enlist in any other league.

STUPID, don't punish kids because their parents are dumbasses. Coached a long time and coached many good kids who had crappy overzealous parents.
