WATCH: Texas Tee-Ball Brawl Spills Onto Field, So One Parent Grabs a Bat
Facebook: The Rio Grande Valley

Youth sports parents fighting at their children’s events is a story as old as time. Despite this being a place for kids to just go out and have fun, something always seems to get in the way of little kids hitting a baseball off a tee and forgetting to run down to first base.

During a youth tee-ball game in Texas over the weekend, some parents decided that it was time to take matters into their own hands. It’s unclear how exactly this fight started, but what’s certain is that the fiasco of sugar-fueled T-ball rage shouldn’t have gotten to this level at all.

The video, which spread like wildfire and has been shared more than 5,000 times from The Rio Grande Valley Facebook page, begins with a few parents scrapping in the middle of the field. Suddenly, more parents pour onto the field to increase the tension. Then, one woman even runs out there with a damn baseball bat, swings away like she’s Bryce Harper (you can hear the sound when she connects with a knee cap), and scurries away as quickly as she came.

A statement from police explained that “an incident between two parents during a youth baseball game in which emotions ran high.”

Duh.

What’s worse is that this isn’t even the first time a melee has broken out at Palmview Municipal Park.

Lt. Arnold Sepulveda of the Palmview Police said that one person was arrested after police responded, and that additional patrols will be made so these brainless fools wanting to relive the glory days stop running out onto the field during Little League baseball games.

Look, people. I feel like this doesn’t need to be said, but here I am, saying it anyway: Don’t get involved in your kids’ games because you want to flex your muscles and defend them. Scenes like this (despite being hilarious to watch because most people don’t actually know how to fight) are tiresome and shouldn’t be happening.

It’s a T-ball game, folks. Get over it.
