[UPDATED 6/20/2019, 5:21pm PT: Kevin Fountain, director of media relations for Little League International wrote to tell us "this altercation did not take place at a program affiliated with Little League. 'Little League' is a registered trademark of Little League Baseball, Incorporated, and listed in the AP Styleguide. That phrase may only be used in reference to Little League International or a local Little League program that is affiliated with Little League International. It may not be used as a generic term describing youth sports. As this incident did not take place within the Little League program, I respectfully ask that you replace all references of Little League to youth baseball." We have done as Mr. Fountain requests and regret the error.]
On a nice afternoon in Lakewood, Colorado, parents attending their seven-year-old children's baseball game decided that the best way to deal with a controversial call made by the 13-year-old umpire was to storm the field, scream, and hit one another.
Lakewood (Colo.) Police handed out issued four citations for disorderly conduct, and are still seeking suspects for potentially more serious charges, after 15–20 grown-ups got into a big ol' brawl in the middle of a 7-year-olds' baseball game this weekend.
The cause of the fight? According to police, one parent was upset with calls made by the game's 13-year-old umpire. Things devolved quickly, and in a really depressing moment at around four seconds of the video, you can see the children in the field fleeing for safety.
In the background, you can hear a woman making a personal request to Jesus Christ to stop the brawl. The video ends before we can see whether or not the son of God arrived and intervened.
