Just imagine if these parents would have the same passion for academics.

News flash: Their slow, small white kid will not be playing professional baseball. Let the kids just have fun. Don't take it so seriously. However, if you had worked with them on other shit, they might be able to read before they turned 7. socrazy


Nothing is obscene provided it is done in bad taste.

So you don’t have baseball superfans in Rich Town who think their kid is the next ARod?


yeah...I saw the ump tell one guy to shut his mouth or leave

these fkn twits are all drinking road sodas and gossiping

no. i think i just explained the basis for the call and that was the end of it.

i've always been very reasonable.

That same lady is harassing her kids' teachers.


A threat response is a potent trigger for motivated reasoning.

"People who are right a lot listen a lot, and they change their mind a lot. . . . . They wake up and reanalyze things and change their mind. If you don't change your mind frequently, you're going to be wrong a lot."

I guess what is different is no parents got involved. But that was not a normal thing for me.

Later on they swam me out passed the Redondo pier to see if I would drown.

Fun times.


Reminds me of the time when I was on-deck and one of my friends from the neighborhood was the catcher on the other team. I was ragging on him about his dad being a fat ass, he charged me, we started duking it out and 20 seconds later a bench clearing brawl of 8-10 year old kids ensued.
Good times!

This incident is disgusting. In San Clemente every little league team has to volunteer parents or junior kids 13+ years old to be umpires, but you can't do your own kids games. It can get pretty bad with some parents umpiring and not having a clue how to do it but a lot of us are regulars and most parents are really mellow and understand. I've umpired at least a few dozen games, mostly behind the plate for kids from 7 to 13 and oddly I kindof enjoyed it. This is my first year without being involved and I often think of still volunteering... but the worst parents we're the ones who never volunteer. I've told many parents to 'zip it or I make you leave in front of everyone... and if you don't I will timeout the game until you do shut up or leave'. Otherwise it's game over if I leave. Ive had to pause a game for 10 minutes and lecture an entire team and their fans. That were from the neighboring town SJC and had never had to volunteer so basically they were out of control. I'm sure someone got it on video. It'd be great youtube material. I lectured them all like kindergardeners.

This video is odd as hell. There is no reason so many adults should be anywhere near on the field. These are 7 year olds who should have 3 coaches max. Sad and Disgusting. Most these parents should be banned for life.
