I witnessed the fight.my son was playin across the field.the benchwarmers had just finished playin their game when they were approached by the bombers.the one who started the fight was actually the cop.What kind of a cop is he.he is supposed to be there to serve and protect and not start a fight.It is so sad if he gets away with this.the benchwarmers are just victims of the circumstances.they were ganged up by all the bombers and had no choice but to defend themselves.bombers did not care about the safety of the kids.they should not be allowed to continue playing at the sportspark.
Wow

To some of us this is more than just a SILLY GAME. Our kids might not be the next Jeter but its the childrens favorite game to play. If they didnt like the sport and where doing it just to satisfy us parents. They wouldn't be so great at the game and would not play the game the way these kids do
Thanks for proving my point.

Both teams are at fault here. I am in no way shape or form saying the bombers are angels or that the BW are. Just get your facts straight before you go on "chirping" about any team. Do you go to every teams practice to know who's coaching? do you go to bombers practice to know who is coaching or not.
Problem is partner you are not refuting anything being offered by SEVERAL posters. All you are saying is "get your facts straight". Again, time to man up and admit the screw up. It is irrelevant who coached what team. A police officer was involved and fled. A pathetic situation and it makes it even worse one of the people fighting is supposedly a sworn "peace" officer. Let's just stick with the facts to which everybody in here is more than welcome to obtain from the article, the police department, and/or the Sportspark. By the way, the article correctly reflects that SEVERAL participants in the fight fled before the police arrived. Sure, alot of "innocent" people just run away after being assaulted.

BW's stop trying to cover up. A parent that has nothing to do with you guys threw the first punch to a bombers dad. It all went south from there. Nobody has nothing to hide cops got both sides of the story so obviously bombers didnt go hide anywhere right. How else could the reports been made with just one side of the story. Also this is the first fight that the bomber parents get into. Now if those certain individuals previously got into fights with their previous team that they were with THAT IS A WHOLE diff story.

Its a very simple process acting stupid like that should not be tolerated both teams should be suspended for a year with the kids and then we will see some restraint and anger management in control parents. Its a kids game that if we choose to be competitive fine for those who don't then go play in the optimist or westside leagues or even city. If thier cheating its on them or simple process is change to wood bats period. Its hard to prove the shaved bat concept. It may also be that the baseball team actually does work hard and are really good.......Best scenario here would be suspension of a year to open everyones eyes that fighting is not tolerated.
why should both teams be suspended.bombers started everything, the benchwarmers had to defend themselves.the problem is the cop who started everyting because he feels he is above us.he probably knew he would get away with it to.

Sorry bud you have to get the facts straight! I was also there and I saw everything.. The Bombers started everything by getting their little gang together and making their way to the third base dugout where the benchwarmers were playing and hitting a coach that was trying to keep anything from happening. Bombers coaches&parents charged at the three Benchwarmer coaches.. The Benchwarmers were defending themselves. Again get the story straight if you think what you say can be true why did all the Bomber coaches,parents and including the off duty cop run?..... liar!!!
You are the liar!!! Sore Loser Bechwarners never tried to stop anything coach insisted he did say that and WHAT!!!! THATS WHY HE GOT BEAT UP!!! HEAD COACH OF BECHWARMERS THREW FIRST PUNCH FOR YOUR INFO...SO YOUR FACTS ARE FALSE...PLEASE DONT COMMENT IF YOU DON'T KNOW

This fight is NOT isolated this happens all the time! I'm a baseball mom who is there at least twice a week & I know for a fact that this happens way too often. What are you coaches and/or parents teaching the kids? That cheating is okay and if someone is accusing you of cheating go and fight them to make things better? For those of you that don't think that fixed bats make a difference in this age it does! Have you seen some of the 12 year olds? They're huge and can hit the ball hard with a regular bat so can you imagine with a fixed bat? I think Veronica Escobar should look into banning alcohol at the park too! These coaches and/or parents don't need anything else to fuel the fire and thats what alcohol does. They don't know how to control themselves, get beer balls & start fighting in front of everyone including kids. YES beer makes money but not for the park, it makes money for the third party vendor selling it! On Saturday there were kids crying because they were terrified! Did these MEN care? Heck no all they care about is their own ego. I think the coaches from the Bombers (because they started the fight) should be banned from going into the park for 1 yr. We need to make all the other coaches/parents realize that fighting is prohibited!
you are correct.beer shouldnt be sold at a game for kids.and the bombers should be kicked out for putting all those kids in danger.

The bigger issue is why is a police officer engaged in a brawl over an accusation whether correct or not? Not to mention the accusation was a week before. Too many problems associated with a game supposed to be played by kids. As far as the dangers associated with using a shaved bat. I guess nobody is aware of the guy that was killed playing softball and took a ball off the head from a shaved bat? It does not matter what sport, what equipment. If you alter the equipment (which is not hard to do) you put other people at risk. If this were a false accusation you just laugh at it and move on. You dont approach the accuser a week later to settle up. Stupid is as stupid does.

I say the benchwarmers should be banned from the sports park reason being they have history of having illegal players. There parents and coaches are instegators that don't have nothing else to do than to create problems. Get drunk and talk crap all the time!!!!Can't accept there kids loss and accuse with out proof...As from what I have seen the Bombers is a great team with alot of talent and very supported parents as well the coaches. That only want to make EL PASO PROUD!!!!
your kids must play with the bombers.that must be the reason you talking so good about them.but the cop should have had control and discipline.

These parents are fools. El Paso Times also forgot to say that one of the bombers parents slapped the sports plex director. By the way the officers name is Carlos Contreras who is known for getting drunk with his buddies at the sports plex . He always try's to hide behind his badge and thinks he scares people with his "im a cop" crap. Another bad hire for the El Paso Police Department.
you are so right.the mom should be banned for slapping the director.i was right in front of her when she did it.hope someone does somethin about this and doesnt let Carlos get away with this.he should know better.

Wow. If what you are saying is true, then that cop does deserve to be reprimanded and maybe even released from his job. They do not need people like this coaching or wearing a badge.
Its true all the bombers left as soon as the cops were called.if they didnt start why did they leave?

I'm not even sure if that was English bubba. Were you trying to say estupido ? But hey thanks for providing that little bit of evidence in your own post. "They (bombers) left the scene to prevent any further confrontation". This seems to verify the accounts of many people in here that they left/fled prior to the police arriving. If they were victims of an assault by the BW's why not stay and make sure your side is correctly documented by the police? Again, the officer fled simply b/c he knew he committed a crime. This is the real story people. Pathetic all around but this really points to a much bigger problem associated with this team.

Bull Crap you must be one of the Benchwarmers making false accusations again just like you did with the bats. Cop was one of the last ones there, how could he start it? Benchwarmers coach started everything, got pissed when he was questioned and jumped a bomber parent and his benchwarmer buddies joined in.(3 or 4 on 1.) What kind of crap is that? They knocked him down and kept punching and kicking him. That started everything! Think you're just pissed cuz Bombers are 11 year olds and can keep up with 12 year olds Suck it up. Bombers beat you last season with WOOD bats what about that???? While you used your aluminum or metal bats. Those kids have talent and for you to call them cheaters is an injustice.

Fact #1 this is the first fight the Bombers got into, as Bombers that is. This team is made up of two teams, Unleashed and Strike Force who btw got into a fight in Ruidoso, against eachother. Bunch of Idiots! Fact #2 if so called copper was just protecting himself why did he continue to kick the man when he was down? Was he really in danger? Fact#3 they were all drunk, Bombers coaches, typical! IDIOTS!
