I've never really posted a thread about it before, but this ugly scenario has been discussed in other conversations.

And now we have another brouhaha, in which youth league parents and others broke out into a fight in Lakewood, Colorado--over a disputed call by a youth umpire.

Really, people? Embarrassing! Evil or Very Mad

I could not agree more. It makes me glad none of the leagues my kids were involved in, had parents like that. Or if they did they were not parents of my boys' teammates. Adults need to act like adults!

I can't recall anything like this in the many years my nephews played in Mira Mesa Youth Baseball. Most of the parents were great, supportive of the coaches, and didn't embarrass their kids.
