Flipping Out: A Recent History of Little League Parents Going H.A.M.

A Bad Year for Texas City Little League

Date: March 2010

Location: Texas City, Texas

Baseball is policed through a complicated system of player codes. Since you have to teach kids “how the game is played” at an early age, little league coaches Johnathan Kimsey, JD Cooper, and Jose Duran brawled it out after a “trick play” changed the complexion of a game between seven and eight-year-old kids. 

According to Cooper (who allegedly screamed the f-word before entering the field to argue) he was choked out in front of his own child, coming to when hearing the phrase, “Daddy, wake up.” When the fight was finally broken up, both coaches were arrested and suspended for the season. Less than two weeks later Jeremy Delgado (pictured) was arrested from the same little league fields for swearing at an umpire.
