This is just ridiculous. Adults really need to learn to keep their cool at youth sports events. In this particular case, there were 3 arrests made after a fight over a softball game. Not that it would make it much better, but I was hoping this was some sort of adult softball game. If adults want to act like idiots around other adults, that’s their issue. Unfortunately this happened at a tournament where 12U teams were playing! And a coach was involved?
So sad. C’mon people! Grow up.
From the article…
