Little League Coach Sues his own Player
A little league coach has sued a 14-year-old former player. According to this report from KCRA TV:
“Paris said his son was racing toward home plate to score the winning run during a Lakeside Little League game last spring when the boy threw off his helmet in celebration.
“He was so excited,” Paris said.
In legal papers filed in court, the teen’s former coach, Alan Beck, contends the boy “carelessly threw a helmet, striking Plaintiff’s Achilles tendon and tearing it.”
The dickhead is suing the player and the league for $500,00 which seems slightly misaligned with the Little League Baseball values of courage, character, and loyalty.
