After the ump threw out the Stewart kid for pushing Desins at home plate it should of been over period. The criminal act took place when the other Stewart kid ran in from mound and threw a sucker punch from behind .
Even after he was thrown by the ump he ran back on field and with schin guards and metal spikes started to kick a NH kid. This behavior is apparently tolerated ?

I was sitting right behind home plate. The batter purposely bumped the catcher.....that's what started it all. The ump didn't eject the batter because he works at Chanatry's.

You continue to make a 100 percent false statement , The ump never worked there and there's no connection to your conspiracy but when you can't defend your kids actions you can only divert attention.

Is everybody OK with the kid running in from the pitching mound throwing a sucker punch after it should of been over?? Those kids involved need to be punished not the numerous innocent kids

Grabbing a kid for 3 seconds who just punched your kid in the head and your brother kicking a kid with metal spikes and schin guards on which are weapons are the crime here. Thank God nobody got hurt and a 3 second grab is not choking so don't waste our taxpayer monies because your kids have no disipline. They have much bigger cases to look at than a case of poor sportsmanship.

If that is the case then I am sure charges will be going both ways... I beleive the kids who started the fight should be charged as adults to set a precedent. Legion ballplayers would think twice of doing something again if this happened...

Beer should not be allowed in any future legion games. Also, all players read the legion oath prior to the start of the game. Those players who started the fight should receive a lifetime ban from playing legion ball. The legion needs to take a hard line and make some changes to reduce the chance of these events in the future....

Why shouldnt beer be allowed there? Isnt it allowed
at the little league field? I've done lots of drinking at the little league field during the games. They should be banned from
all of baseball.

The 2013 state tournament is so much different than the 2012 tournament. No fighting, no arguing with umpires, no ejections, no fights in the parking lot with out of town players and fans. What's different? No Whitestown post! Don't worry though. There's still plenty of time for Whitesboro folks to show up drunk and embarrass the area like they did in 2012.
I must agree that the entire event went off (from a athelete's and fans POV) with out all the negativity that comes with Whitestown Post. The Wboro fanbase routine talks about the "arrogant" NH fanbase,but I think the shoe has been on the other foot for some time now. Wboro and their fans suffer from an extreme case of "big fish in the little pond syndrome" ~ Meaning that have been winning routinely (as they should, they are the biggest Class A school by far from an enrollment base) and God Forbid any player side in hard to a base or a casual fan say one thing agaist the machine. "Arrogance" is not being able to take a some competative heat, Wboro can not take even a slight rise in the temperature before they move to threats or violence. Wboro Fan......you are coming across as egomaniacs. You had a downward cycle for talent.....all we hear out of you is that "this group is young". If you roster a team, then compete and don't make excuses. Next year you will be very good again, so I would imagine we will hear very little about your behavior when you are back to your winning ways, really sad state of affairs if that is the case. You should be ashamed to have handled a tough season in such a way.

Beer should not be allowed in Little League games either. Since some parents who drink, beer or other alcoholic beverages, cannot control themselves it sets a bad example for all of the minors participating. Beer or alcoholic beverages are not allowed at high school games; why should they be allowed in Legion games?

Did you know most colleges have stopped alcohol/beer sales at their sporting events because of drinking related issues? According to CBSSports.com , out of the 120 Division-I football programs, just 21 sell beer to all fans of legal age. Of those 21, just 11 of them are on-campus university-owned stadiums (the other 10 are where the college is a tenant in another building).
