Softball’s a civil sport, right? With well tempered fans? Evidently not in the Carolinas, where the parents of players still haven’t figured out to get along.
As first reported this morning in BUSTED COVERAGE, the closed circuit cameras from last weekend’s game between Western Carolina and Furman got a gem of a brawl behind home plate between a woman named Cindy Beatty — the mother of Western Carolina third baseman Stephanie Beatty — and some unidentified victims from the Furman Palladin faithful. We call the second protagonist “victim” because Beatty is so big, she’d be seen as preying on anything smaller than Jabba the Hut. Check out the video for yourself after the jump, and it’s pretty clear who the victims (the fairly attractive college-aged Furman fans) and the aggressor (the elder Beatty) were.
