SJ - May 22, 2022

A playoff baseball game between Del Campo High School and Buhach Colony in California ended up in the news after some parents got into a fight with the umpires after the game.

Apparently there was a homerun that was overturned after the batter missed first base.  And a close play at the plate that decided the game, leading to a heated confrontation in the parking lot.

You know, typical high school baseball game stuff, via CBS Sacramento:

The game drew controversy this week after Buhach Colony fans engaged in a fight with umpires in the parking lot after the game.

The CIF previously decided to move the remaining games to neutral sites with no fans allowed to be in attendance, but that was overturned.

The San Juan Unified School District said the remaining games in the series will be played at their previously scheduled sites with fans allowed, however, Buhach Colony fans who were involved in the post-game fight will be banned from attending. Additionally, strong administrative presences are mandatory for each game.

I'm going to say there isn't a whole lot going on in these people's lives.  I get that it's the playoffs and all, but it's high school baseball.  There's more to life than high school baseball.
