Youth baseball parents are known for being emotional and occasionally confrontational, but what happened recently at a 7-year-old baseball game in Lakewood, Colorado, is beyond insane.
In the video shown below, nearly a dozen parents fought each other in front of their kids.
These adults took over the field and began assaulting each other on 6/15 during a youth baseball game. We're looking for any info, in particular to ID the man in the white shirt/teal shorts. Several people have already been cited in this fight and injuries were reported. pic.twitter.com/ieenhwCrbU

Four people were cited, but none were arrested, according to The Big Lead.
The brawl apparently stemmed from questionable calls made by a teenage umpire. Questionable calls by an umpire of any age should never result in a display like the one seen above, much less in a game between 7-year-olds. A terrible example was definitely set for those youngsters on this day, and some of their family members, particularly the guy in teal shorts, may find themselves in a ton of trouble.
