i guess you think all the children that have lost nights of sleep because of those people got what they deserve as well, and the children on the field who could have been injured just as easy, not to mention the children who did not deserve the verbal abuse they had to put up with throughout the game..I am ashamed of how the Eagleton coaches, fans, parents and children acted and I am not even a part of their league.. thank god for the volunteers who go out of their way to protect our children...

prayers

Richmond, KY

#15 Jul 8, 2010
prayers are needed for this ump and his family, as well as Harrogate players, parents, and fans.. i heard the fans were shook up just as bad as anyone...i guess we should pray for eagleton as well, because they obviously need it and its the right thing to do. as for the attacker, i heard he only got him from behind, must be a coward and have some practice at things like this..we should pray for him to. harrogate baseball field has been thru alot the last couple of days lets come together and get through this.it appears they have the BEST :: PLAYERS.....PARENTS.....COACHE S....BOARD MEMBERS.... AND UMPS!!!!!!!!! none of them should have went throught that

I was at this game. I was not asked to change my behavior or asked to move from my seat during this game because I do not voice my disagreement with any umpire out aloud, I keep it to myself as you should. All of the Eagleton fans/parents/crowd were not disorderly or acting out so we can clarify that with this post.
I do appreciate any prayers for Eagleton though as all prayer is good for anyone and ELL does need it right and have for a while. The entire Little League Association needs prayer for the children because that is what the game is about the children. We as parents love to see our children WIN but also must teach them that losing is part of life as well and losing sometimes makes you try harder, they should know as long as you do your best that is what counts. The children in those two dugouts are who COUNTED THE MOST Tuesday night and should have been the priority over anyone. I do not approve of the action taken on the umpire and I did not think he made PERFECT calls either, but AGAIN none of the children should have been exposed to that altercation. If the game was that bad to the Eagleton coaches then children should have been taken off the field during the early innings when parents were being asked to leave for comments they were making and maybe a protest to not finish the game under this umpire, you can protest a game if you feel it is under prejudice by the umpire calling it. Some say he was the catcher Dad, I have no idea but if that were the case then he should not have been calling the game, I mean really can a catcher's father call the game fairly. However, the first time you are asked to change your attitude by an official then you should keep comments to yourself. It is HUMAN not to agree with an umpire/referee or official of any sport when you don't like the call but you are not allowed to show yourself. Just fuss to yourself and get over it. I just wanted to be there to watch the boys play ball and that is not what happened instead the boys were taught to get mad and then fight about it. Children in this day and time learn enough about fighting and bad attitudes.
The adults/parents/teachers/coache s around the children are responsible to teach them attitude and morals, we are suppose to be role models to them. The parents for both of these teams should ahve came together instead of Harrogate being mad at Eagleton and vice versa and took the children completely off the field and ended it themeselves. I would have stood up for that. The kids only wanted to play ball. The more heated the coaches got the more the players could see it so of course they were going to be mad like their "Coach" was.

I agree with this--THE KIDS ARE THE ONES WHO MATTER IN THE GAME--Why do these things happen????

To Concerned Too: Mr. White does not have a son who plays on that team or any other team out there. His daughter plays softball, therefore there was no relative of his on the field. These men volunteer their time to help the children stay involved in community activities and should be commended.

To Sponsor: I was not arguing about anything. I was stating what was said at the game that night from some kid in the bleachers.FROM MY POST--"Some say he was the catcher Dad, I have no idea."
The fact of this is I don't care if he was or not the catcher's Dad. My POST stated prior if you read my entire post "I DO NOT APPROVE OF THE ACTION TAKEN ON THE UMPIRE"
I was more concerned with the children in the dugouts and the way they were and ARE affected. They will not forget that for a long time. As both Little Leagues have men and women who volunteer their time to coach, work on the fields, and work concessions I do commend them. However the umpires are suppose to be paid by the Little Leagues for umpiring games.

When I mentioned volunteering, it was in reference to working on the fields, etc. I appreciate everyones concern for the children. We, as adults, are suppose to set a good example for all children. I commend you for your thoughts on this matter, and agree with you completely.
