The coach is an ass wrote:
I was there and everyone knows Jim Edge is abusive and is mean to all the kids. He was intentionally throwing pitches at his son as well as calling him fat in front of his friends and teammates. Being an 11 year old who was upset called his father who then came to the ball field. After having an argument the coach, the idiot coach pushes frank basile in front of all the kids so, naturally frank pushes back and things escallated from there. The d**khead coach JIM EDGE was such problem he was banned from the towns little league and had to "start" his own team. He looks for trouble wherever he goes. He has looked to sue others in the past, probably hoping for cash....
This story sounds a lot like one here. We had a 5'5 stroid/meathead named FRANKIE abuse Coach's and Managers for years. The "League" sent him packing (the a$$wipe). Word his he took his B-S on the road to Rocky Point and started the same garbage.

Word of advice. When he tries to Bully you, sweep the knee. It's an eggshell. The little gimp!

With their reputation for violence it is easy to blame the Basile brothers for the incident. But now it comes to light that the coach was a jerk who threw pitches at the boy. Then it could have been that the boy mistook the coach's bad arm for aiming at him on purpose.

The next supposition is yours, dear reader, so that we can unravel the mystery. Trouble is, Newsday could have done a much more thorough job of reporting this story. Instead of relying on second and third opinions, they should have found eyewitnesses.

If the kid was a wimp, then pitches should have been thrown at him, to toughen him up. It's tough for fathers when they see their kids being wimps, I can understand the Basiles outrage, you can't take it out on the kid so you go after the coach.......
