Ah, it is that time of year. The long, carefree summer days filled with bike rides, lemonade and the occasional assault on a Little League umpire.
At the Artesian Little League field in Martinsville, Indiana there’s a sign that reads “Remember, it’s just a game! And it’s just for kids!” Apparently, the adults in Martinsville can’t read because two coaches (correction the LOSING coaches) started arguing with an umpire Josh Moscrip following an extra innings game in the first round of the league tournament. This happened near midnight, just after the teams shook hands to demonstrate good sportsmanship.
But, instead of taking the loss like adults, the two coaches went after Moscrip and, at one point, he claims he was head-butted. According to reports, the coaches and the umpire continued to fight right there on the field in full view of about a dozen of parents, and about 30 12-year-old boys. One of the accused coaches (who is not named in the story because he has not been formally charged) says he’s not proud of what happened, but also tried to make it sound like both he and Moscrip were at fault. Apparently the umpire does not see it that way as he has filed charges against the coaches.

It was not the best season for the boy’s basketball team at Shelbyville High School, just south of Indianapolis. The squad finished 1-20 on the season, ranked near the bottom of all the schools in the state. It’s doubtful anyone on the team is going to get a college scholarship. But hey, one piece of good news: a member of the team allegedly got oral sex from the hot assistant cheerleading coach in a parked car at the local grocery store in town.
According to police, coach Megan Crafton, 22, was the subject of a whisper campaign at the high school back in February and when the whispering got loud enough for the administration to hear, they called the local police who did a lengthy investigation (this takes four months?). In the end, Crafton admitted to an inappropriate relationship with a member of the boys basketball team. The victim, 17, told officers that she performed oral sex on him in a car of the parking lot of Western Supermarket at the height of the basketball season. (Trying to console him for all those losses, maybe?)
Crafton now faces a charge of child seduction, a class D felony that carries a sentence of up to three years in prison. On the plus side, Megan does show a nice amount of cleavage in her mugshot, something you don’t see a lot of the ladies put effort into these days.

Now there’s a caring coach for ya!
All Hermantown High School (MN) assistant golf coach Kyle “Put It on My Tab’ Ernst was trying to do was cheer his players up. And why not? The Hermantown Hermits boys team fell one stroke–ONE STROKE!–short of winning the state golf championship being held near Shakopee last week. Crushing, just crushing. You can just see the tears welling up in their little eyes, can’t you?
So, Ernst did what any coach would do; he did his best to console both the boys and girls teams and he went out and bought a couple of cases of beer, a 12 pack of hard cider and a 40 ouncer. He then, allegedly, brought it back to the hotel where the team was staying and started the party. The only problem? Pretty much everyone but Ernst, 26, is underage and really not allowed to consume alcohol, even if they did just lose the state championship by ONE STROKE. There’s gotta be an exception in the manual for that, doesn’t there officer?
We’ll spare you the long details of how Ernst got caught (it involved some members of the team trying to drunkenly buy lottery tickets at 3 am) but needless to say, neither the cops nor the school were happy with his coaching methods. Ernst now faces one count of gross misdemeanor furnishing alcohol to someone younger than 21, and likely will not return to Hermantown next season, even though his team lost in the state championship by one lousy stroke.
Hey, if that happens, can someone buy this guy a beer to help him drown his sorrows?
