This fight broke out in Denver the other day over a call that the 13-year-old umpire made at a baseball game for 7-year-olds.

Are they freaking kidding?

Clearly not, as you can see that a dozen or more PARENTS are so heated by the COMPLETELY INSIGNIFICANT CALL that they're punching at anyone and anything that moves, all while their SMALL CHILDREN ARE SEEN RUNNING THE OTHER WAY.

There is even a manhunt on for the guy in a white shirt and teal shorts who totally sucker punches the other guy in the side of the head near the end. (Make sure to call the tip line if you happen to know this fool!)

Thankfully, the police were called and broke up the ridiculousness, citing several people for disorderly conduct. But they're hoping to get Mr. WhiteShirtTealShorts for assault, and others may face charges for child abuse as they endangered the crap out of their poor kids.

And no, this is not an April Fools in June joke.

These parents are really this absurd and, unfortunately, they're not alone.

Morgan Scalley, a football coach at the University of Utah, talks about the fact that—even at a collegiate level—he often sees parents getting in the way of their BASICALLY GROWN children handling their own athletic lives.

You guys, this was a baseball game for SEVEN-YEAR-OLDS (are the all caps getting old yet?).

I'm disgusted, right alongside the Lakewood Police.

Parents: GET OUT OF YOUR KIDS' WAY AND LET THEM FREAKING PLAY BALL.

It's not about you. And, honestly at this level, it didn't even need to be about who won. Get over yourselves, and let your kids have a normal freaking life where a baseball game doesn't end in parental-induced psychosis and emotional scarring.

Apps to Watch Out For 2019

10 Apps Parents Should Watch Out For in 2019

It's a new year, and that means new apps on your tweens' and teens' phones. While the old standbys like Snapchat and Instagram are still going strong, there's no shortage of social media, video-sharing, and homework-help apps that are popular but not necessarily household names. Of course, it's nearly impossible to keep up with every hot new app, which makes knowing the risky features -- like interaction with strangers, anonymity, privacy concerns, and iffy content -- a solid first step. But it's still important to know the specifics of what's on your kid's device and whether or not you'll allow it to stay there.
