    Default Coach paid kid to hit disabled teammate

    If this was MY kid, the MF wouldnt have been in any shape for the police to arrest him....

    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A T-ball coach allegedly paid one of his players $25 to hurt an 8-year-old mentally disabled teammate so he wouldn't have to put the boy in the game, police said Friday.

    Mark R. Downs Jr., 27, of Dunbar, is accused of offering one of his players the money to hit the boy in the head with a baseball, police said. Witnesses told police Downs didn't want the boy to play in the game because of his disability.

    Police said the boy was hit in the head and in the groin with a baseball just before a game, and didn't play, police said.

    "The coach was very competitive," state police Trooper Thomas B. Broadwater said. "He wanted to win."

    Downs has an unpublished telephone number and couldn't immediately be reached for comment Friday. It was unclear whether he had an attorney.

    He was arrested and arraigned Friday on charges including criminal solicitation to commit aggravated assault and corruption of minors. He was released from jail on an unsecured bond.

    The alleged assault happened June 27 in North Union Township, about 40 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, authorities said.

    The boy's mother asked state police to investigate her son's injuries because she suspected Downs wanted to keep the boy off the field, despite a league rule that required each player to participate in three innings a game, Broadwater said.

    Eric Forsythe, the president of the R.W. Clark Youth Baseball League, said Downs had two daughters on the T-ball team.

    League organizers investigated accusations against Downs before the T-ball season ended earlier this month but could not prove that he did anything wrong. If Downs is convicted of any crime, he won't be allowed to be a coach next year, Forsythe said. The league is not affiliated with Little League International.

    I'm at a lost for words. I have a son who is mentally and phyically challenged and will never get the chance to play with other kids. Ignoring that, all these kids want to do is be able to be like other kids and play and feel normal as they possibly can. At first, I wish bad feelings towards this coach, now I feel sorry for him. How on Earth someone could even come up with an idea like that scares me.
    Very sad.

    I would make sure everybody in the state knows this dickless-wonder's face and exactly what he did. He should look over his shoulder for the rest of his life and fear the day someone fixes his sorry ass.

    The state should look into taking away his kids. This prick has mental problems.

    I'm sure this dickwad is one of those little league coaches who check out girls my age and always smell like booze. I hope he burns in hell.

    That story made me sad.

    People like the coach should never be allowed near children period.

    We were talking about this yesterday at lunch. I coached soccer for the first time this year. The organization is AYSO affiliated which promoted sportmanship and the fact that every kid played. I enjoyed it. I work with an attorney who is blind and coaches baseball. The shit that goes on with parents and coaches who live vicariously through the kids is sick. Most of them never played baseball and if they did they sucked real bad. This guy has problems. I feel real bad for the kids having to deal with an asshole like this. I agree with ChrisTheEdHead.

    What happened to just playing the game for the enjoyment of it? Sure, its nice to win, but winning isn't everything. Besides, this is LITTLE LEAGUE. Its not like there are large amounts of money at stake or the fate of the world is hanging in the balance. This has been one fucked up week of news stories.

    I'm not a 'wild west hang every bastard who spits on a sidewalk' kind of guy, but there are exceptions...

    I have an autistic son and once, at a party, a friend's son tried to get other kids to throw things at my boy who was just watching a video game being played...My boy was 2 at the time an oblivious that this other boy was so mad...The kid then went up to my son and screamed at him to get out of his room...

    I've felt anger before and rage a few times...

    This was different...and when my buddy beat his kid's ass, I was happy and content that justice had been done...

    There's only one remedy for those who prey on people who are challenged in some way...

    The best part is this "coach" most likely has a kid, thus continuing his ignorant line of thinking. It's fucking 8 year old tee-ball. Are there even winners or loser in those games? Fuck him let's blame society.
