Alabama youth baseball coaches and umpires brawl during game

A youth baseball coach and umpire had to be separated during a game Saturday in Alabama.

A Facebook post said the commotion broke out between a base umpire and the coach of the D.C. Patriots at the Grand Slam Sports Tournament.

The DC Patriots are an under-11 team in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, according to the Grand Slam website.

The video of the incident does not show what started the fight, but viewers soon encounter a screaming match between the coach and the umpire near the pitchers’ mound.

The two appeared to make contact and the referee wrapped his arms around the coach. The home base umpire then tries to pull the partner away from the coach, and the two fall to the dirt.
