Parents Engage in All-Out Brawl During Youth Baseball Game

The fight began after parents disagreed with the 13-year-old empire's calls.

Parents in Lakewood, Colorado erupted into an all-out brawl at a youth baseball game this past Saturday. The game was between a group of 7-year-old children at Westgate Elementary School, as reported by ABC News. After disagreeing with the 13-year-old umpire’s calls, adults swarmed the field and began fighting.

Video footage of the brawl shows a group of 15-20 adults going at each other, with one man in a white t-shirt and teal shorts throwing the most punches. After police arrived on the scene, they ordered four citations for disorderly conduct but said in a tweet that they are still searching for others involved in the fight, including the man in teal shorts.

The Lakewood police are seeking any information regarding him and it’s unknown if he’s a parent of one of the young players or not. Police also reported several minor injuries with one person suffering a serious injury, though no further details on the injuries were released. Towards the end of the video, one man is seen cradling another man’s head and a woman behind the camera appears to be praying.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time a children’s sporting event has erupted into parents fighting. Last year, a massive brawl occurred during a youth basketball game in Las Vegas. This kind of behavior is not only incredibly dangerous but certainly, no example to set for the children watching it all go down. How are these kids supposed to learn good sportsmanship if their parent is literally punching another adult over a call?
Come on, parents. Do better.
