They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, buy and this still from a video shot during a youth baseball game in Cooper City, Florida this week speaks volumes about what is wrong with youth sports these days. Not a lot of details yet, but it’s obvious from the video (below) that the adults involved couldn’t control their tempers and started brawling like a bunch of drunken sailors in front of their kids. This little catcher just stands there, motionless, throughout this video. We can only imagine what he’s thinking. Likely, he’s not going to be so excited to go to the ball park for next week’s game.
So parents, is it worth it to act like idiots during a game involving grade-schoolers? Video is from Local ABC 10.
