If you’ve ever played any kind of beer league, then you know it can get pretty rowdy.
I mean, for the most part, we’re talking about unathletic, or washed-up regular Joes who should be happy just to get out and move around with some friendly competition on a Tuesday night, and then head to the bar with their buddies for a few postgame cold ones.
But in towns all across America, you have bozos who act like they’re playing in the Super Bowl.
Whether it’s softball, kickball, volleyball, dodgeball, flag football, or whatever… at some point during the season somebody is bound to blow a gasket and get into a screaming match with someone from the opposing team.
I’ve witnessed this several times myself, but I must say this is the first time I’ve ever seen a full on brawl between both teams go down.
This wild scene occurred in Sacramento, California last Tuesday night around 9 PM at Franklin Roosevelt Park, during an adult league kickball game.
Now, I’ve never played adult kickball, but I’ve always thought it was a more laid back adult sport, considering most of these people probably haven’t played since elementary school and it’s notoriously a recess kids game.
But boy, I was wrong…
In this wild scene, it’s basically a free for all, with one dude ending up on the ground, as a few people begin kicking, stomping, and hitting the person on the dirt, appearing to knock him out unconscious.
According to CBS News Sacramento, the Sacramento Police Department was called to the scene around 9:15, and although it’s unclear what exactly started the fight, a player told the outlet that it involved a spectator.
A spectator? So someone not even playing? Good Lord…
The Xoso Sport and Social League, who puts together the kickball league, said in a statement:
“We are extremely saddened by the event that took place after our games concluded Tuesday night. Our team is committed to keeping Xoso a welcoming, fun, safe environment for all our employees, players and supporters.
In our 15 years of business, we have had very few physical altercations and none of this magnitude. We have a community of 20,000 players annually, and this tragic event is not representative of our community or company values.
We have spent the past few days viewing multiple videos to identify the instigators and participants of the incident so we can remove them from our leagues. We have zero tolerance for this behavior.”
Imagine being a grown man throwing hands over kickball… aren’t you embarrassed?
