Gary Craft gets kicked out of a youth ball game (Is not the first and will not be the last) and now he wants to start publicly calling the official a convicted felon. I would think KHSAA would not be too impressed with these actions either beings he is a veteran official himself. I would also think this would be an ethics violation with his state job. I bet his state boss would not agree with his actions at the ball park and on topics.

craft was dead wrong when its all said and done. he is a basketball official and should know better than anyone that he shouldn't dog an official. I have been at games were people wanted to kill him so he violated the code. Also if he was a felon that has nothing to do with him umpiring a baseball game if he isn't a sex offender. Craft is a knowbody in this community if he is going to carry on like this.

You should see how he acts at some of his boys high school baseball games. Really bad when a veteran official acts like that and when he has ejected other parents for a lot less. Two faced as they come!

Felons rule the world if u single out felons, you wouldn't be able to eat a burger at a fast food restaurant, or have a house built, constructions on road ways and the congress building and house rep would be empty too lol.

My nephew plays on the same team Mr. Craft was supporting that night. You are wrong about this one. I was sitting about 15 feet from Mr. Craft when this happened. He had no business acting the way he did and for saying what he did to the umpire. He should be ashamed.

Jason you need to stop talking to yourself as everyone knows you are the only one posting on this subject. You need to get a job and stay away from the children of our community.

Ladies and gentlemen, this needs to stop. All of this bashing of both individuals is wrong. People have forgotten what youth sports are about. It s for the kids, not the parents, coaches, the YMCA or the umpires. The umpires are human beings and should not be treated the way they are. On the night in question Mr. Craft and yes a veteran official in both baseball and softball went overboard on calls he felt like were wrong and just maybe they were. But still his actions were extreme and very personal towards the umpire. Mr. Craft was undermining the other umpire's calls. At this time Mr. Mayton asked Mr. Craft not to make statements to his team regarding his fellow umpire, and was asked this in a mild tone so no one could hear their conversation. At this point Mr. Craft charged Mr. Mayton and then became very personal to the umpire to which he called him names and cussed him. Then and only then did Mr. Mayton throw Mr. Craft out. At this point Mr. Craft stood in the middle of the field making vicious accusations about Mr. Mayton loudly and in front of the children and fans. Let me tell you had the shoe been on the other foot Mr. Craft would and I have witnessed during his years of officiating would have done the same thing himself. What s so bad is Mr. Craft is a very close longtime friend of the Mayton family. Also people that weren t there need not pass judgement. Granted Mr. Mayton has made some mistakes in his life but don t he as well as other people deserve a second chance in life. I feel that what really upset Mr. Craft the most was he elt like he was thrown out by someone to whom he thought was beneath him. Everyone in life has done things they regret but everyone deserves a second chance. So on that being said please stop this and enjoy your children. If people who just take half o this negativity and turn it in to positive and support the kids things would be sooo much. The Lord says do not judge lest you be judged.

Why should he stay away from the children of our community, he has done nothing wrong to any child ever. He s not a child molester, he has 2 daughters of his own. If you are so concerned about him working with children the look up his name on the sex offenders registery it s free.
