Little League WS: Ten Things I Hate About You

Sure, there are plenty of things I like about Little League: For example, it keeps kids off of my lawn. Also it promotes exercise … unless the player in question is in the outfield. But when the final week of August rolls around, I expect to see children in football pads and cleats, or at […]

Jim Rice Rips Manny, A-Rod; Makes Children Cry

If there’s one thing I hate about the Little League World Series … well, there are a lot of things. But if there’s one thing I love about it, it’s when old Major Leaguers show up and tell the youngsters grouchy yarns about how things were better in the old days. Kids love that! You […]

Texas Woman Beats Disabled Kid For Soccer Ball

Americans might not all be fans of the game of soccer, but there’s no denying the sheer breathtaking violence and passion of the sport’s more extreme fans. Soccer hooliganism is something we’ve (thankfully) never really duplicated here in the States. Sure, a college town couch might go up in flames from time to time or […]

Bowling Coach Munsons His Child Porn Taping

I guess they have coaches for everything, but I’ve never really heard of a youth bowling coach. The closest thing I could think of to a bowling coach was Woody Harrelson as Roy Munson in “Kingpin,” and I don’t think you would have wanted his character within 500 feet of children of any age.

Parent Sues When Son Injures Self Sliding, Wins $

Here below we see another unfortunate Little League Slide Fail. It’s reminiscent of the way I did it — once injuring my butt, ripping my pants and killing a squirrel during the same slide into second.

Sorry Kids, Game Called On Account Of…Lawsuit?

It’s stories about Little Leaguers that cause me to hearken back to my own younger days and the things that I love most about baseball. The freshly-mowed grass, the sound of the bat hitting the ball, the law firm of Moscowitz & Moscowitz filing writs with the law firm of McCready & Schwartz. And now, […]

William Jacobsen, a youth baseball coach from Little River-Academy, will spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibilty of parole for sexually abusing two boys, one who played on his Little League team.

Youth Soccer, On The Scale Of Theft Awfulness

Rather jarring news from the world of children in Umbro shorts today, as La Quinta AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organiziation) regional commissioner Sharon Schumaier was named in a felony embezzlement investigation over a sizable chunk of missing money, according to the PALM SPRINGS (CA) DESERT SUN.

Coach Arrested For Playing A Little Pocket Tennis

It’s the story you’ve heard so many times before: Youth tennis coach gets arrested for pleasuring himself in the parking lot of a sexual health clinic while watching a group of 14-year-old girls at a nearby bus stop, and then driving past them slowly about eight times. Bonus fact: Apparently he’s a New York Giants […]

Lucky HS Baseball Player Survives Freak Accident

I can’t imagine anything more horrifying than this: going to your son’s high school baseball game and seeing him collapse while trotting to first after being hit in the chest by a pitch, and finding him lifeless when you get to him - with his eyes wide open and not breathing.

That’s exactly the awful situation […]
