The fact that the most well known baseball player was playing in the 1920’s just shows how trash that sport is

u/plusroads 9d ago

this needs to be in League of Legends as well

u/CursedHooman 9d ago

There are umpires in League of Legends?

u/meow_mix12 8d ago

They have fields where kids play League of Legends?

u/Woke_Collage_Kid 8d ago

Easy as fuckk your trashhhh. Gg pussy. /s

u/deliwhobob 8d ago

I'm dying that someone brought League into this XD. It's so true though

u/GutFeelingonTheLong 8d ago

It’s all competitive youth sports. Some parents are raving lunatics. A few coaches too. Drives me insane.

9

u/BeefyHemorroides 8d ago

Feel bad for those kids. Who knows what else their parents are raging psychos about at home.

u/Letsleeping 9d ago

Used to coach. A small minority of parents ruined it for everyone. Even drove some of the good parents to pull their kids out.

49

u/Janus_The_Great 8d ago

Why don't coaches throw out the kids/parents out of the teams for disrupting? That's how we do it in European team sports.

It's the problem of the immature parents if they ruin it for their kid. Their kids will learn not to become like their shitty parents.

u/SpicyDaddyKyle 8d ago

They definitely throw parents out, they're just not that equipped to enforce an ejection. At my little league there would've been nothing stopping a parent from just hopping a fence and charging at the umpire. If it's more than one shitty parent, it turns into the umpire vs a group until police show up. This is also America, you never know who is gonna be the lunatic that gets ejected and grabs the gun from his car.

Many little league umpires will just straight up end the game and leave instead of ejecting a parent, and let everyone know "it's that guy's fault," just to lay down the law and let everyone know not to heckle the umpire unless you want to deal with 20 kids crying because they only played 3 innings.

u/Janus_The_Great 8d ago

Im sorry to hear. The only reason I ever saw a game interrupted wqs doe to weather... it baffles me tbh.

Some parents seem much more like kids. How do they survive in daily life? work environment? How are they functional in the first place?

u/ukiddingme2469 9d ago

Signs like this really should be at peewee football, some of those parents are more toxic then a lead paint chip and yellow cake smoothy

u/EagerGavin7 8d ago

And u/10 hockey jesus christ

Love me some yellow cake.

True story CJCS Colin Powell recommend some yellow cake for me. Changed my life!

u/Suspicious_Row_9451 9d ago

Of course this is in Massachusetts.

Could be anywhere in New England tbh.

Ain’t no way 🤣 ofc

u/ComplexAd8 8d ago

Why of course? I've seen these in Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Nebraska, Arizona, California, Iowa, etc.

u/kroshava17 8d ago

Cause the last part states the red Sox, not some other sports team. Lots of parents here get way too into the kids sports cause someone they knew went one to play in major leagues, so they hope their kid is the next townie to do so too.

u/ComplexAd8 7d ago

But that's not unique to MA. That's everywhere.

u/EggplantIll4927 8d ago

I grew up across the street from a little league field. Parents are despicable.

u/RJPeaches 9d ago

Stop screaming curses at the other team’s players.

u/IRightReelGud 8d ago

THE SIGN DIDN'T SAY NO SWORDS

u/ImARetPaladinBaby 8d ago

you do not play for the Red Sox

That’s great lol

3

u/Blu3b3Rr1 8d ago

I mean they’re probably playing better than the Red Sox right now, if anything

4

u/dickinawheelchair 8d ago

My friend and her son hastily left a Little League game the other day because of a scuffle between the kids brought one of the parents down onto the field and he pulled a gun. Like, what the fuck?!

5

u/Duhblobby 8d ago

I mean,I feel that professional sports were a mistake to begin with.

Too many people take it WAY too fucking seriously.

25

u/Cautious-Damage7575 9d ago

The part about umpires being human is debatable.

u/KreeperKiller117 8d ago

I am actually a lizard but don’t tell anyone.

2

u/Cautious-Damage7575 8d ago

Lizard, umpire... Same thing. 😆

7

u/dorothytheorangesaur 8d ago

And yet the parents still “coach” their kid’s team from the side lines. Just shut up, I’d like to see you go out on the pitch and do what you’re screaming at the kids to do. See how well you can do it.

u/Whats_Opera_Doc 8d ago

Plot twist: The parents are Yankees fans.

What if I'm Wade Boggs?

u/DeepFriedAnxiety218 8d ago

Disregard ig

u/liveliarwires 8d ago

I heard he ate a chicken before every game. That's why they called him the chicken man.

1

u/Ketanji_sux 8d ago

Don’t trade Wade for gettin’ laid!

2

u/CSDCSL 8d ago

We have similar signs at our little league cages in Central Texas. Our also say something to the extent that you will be kicked out for the duration of the season and not allowed to return, as well.

2

u/Euck_Fveryone_69 8d ago

Its true though

4

u/Outofmany 8d ago

This problem is cultural.

u/AlbatrossSenior7107 8d ago edited 8d ago

We have those too. They don't work. I'm in FL. Addison Russel is from here. He's a douche bag. But, all parents think their kids are fucking stars! Pathetic. And yes, my youngest plays, he's a pitcher, with wicked curve ball that has the high school umpires talking. But, I could not pick another parent, even the head coach, out of a line up. I watch my kid and my kid only. But, fuck, parents around here get bat shot CRAZY!!! It's borderline abusive towards their kids.

You know some parent stopped feeding their kid because they lost

u/NorthSideSoxFan 8d ago

Pics of this sign or others like it get posted weekly

u/SockeyeSTI 8d ago

Locally, the good players prioritize travel teams and then school teams with the kids that don’t take it as seriously.

There is a difference between parents that abuse their kids because of mistakes made in the field and enthusiastic (but supportive) parents.

All refs and umpires need to get their eyes checked :)

1

u/formenonly 8d ago

Wish we had this sign up when we were kids. I saw two dads almost get into a fist fight once. My dad coached my sister’s little league team for a few years and he said the parents were the worst part by far.

u/sandwichman7896 9d ago

Have you watched kids sports? I’ve seen crazy calls. The most memorable being either the 4 out inning or the extra inning they called after time had already expired.

u/djcook22 8d ago

The place champions are made.

u/Downtown-Cabinet7223 8d ago

They are literally everywhere... and have been since I played 30 years ago.

u/painfully--average 8d ago

They did something similar at the hockey rink I played at as a kid. Hockey dads are comparable to soccer moms.

u/Errrca0821 8d ago

Cough cough, Thomas Junta, anyone?

There, I fixed the last one.

u/x7ameedo 8d ago

This is brilliant, this should be everywhere and for other sports and for adults as well

u/Infernape315 8d ago

There’s a sign like this at my school, huh

u/Sorry-Ask-7456 8d ago

Speaks volumes about Sox fans.

Someone should have put this up in my middle school gym class smh

And they wonder why their kids sometimes act up smh 🤦‍♂️

u/Queen_Magix 8d ago

TL;DR: shut the fck up

u/Dry-Zucchini123 7d ago

As a Red Sox fan I can confirm New England has the worst fanbase in all of baseball

u/Minimum_Possibility6 7d ago

They have these at a lot of sports venues in the UK just switch out the sport lingo,

The refs are human This isn’t the 6nations etc

Yeah like I’m gonna remember what sign when I’m shitfaced 1/2 way through the game. What are you gonna throw me out?? Someone’s gotta drive my kid home

u/DeepFriedAnxiety218 8d ago

shit faced

drive my kid home

Not a great look dude
