He wanted to win (

    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."

Funny, sick, and sad all at the same time.

It's freaking T-Ball!

You know that makes zero sense. I have been attending/coaching T-Ball for the last four years and we don't even keep score.

Absolutely sick. I watched all four of my nephews play T-ball, and they never kept score. I don't know of any Little Leagues in San Diego that keep T-ball scores. It's just for the wee ones to have some fun.
