Youth Baseball team coach hits son after he was ejected from the gameJuly 12th, 2010 - 10:39 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Harrisburg, July 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A youth baseball team coach in Pennsylvania was charged with assault after he punched a player, who was his own son, for being ejected from a game.
The coach - Raymond John Boudreau, however maintains that it is not as it has been made to seem. The 47-year-old coach never actually did wanted to harm his son with that ‘little’ punch.
But the police maintain that Boudreau must be made to face the charge of simple assault because he did hit his 9-year-old son twice in the face.
The attorney of Boudreau however maintains that the coach never hit his son in the face with his closed fist, even though he admits that his client did actually hit his son in the back. He said that, “Ray disagrees with what the witnesses saw. He did not strike his son in the face with a closed fist twice. But he agrees that he struck him in the back.”
However the eyewitnesses said that the coach had hit his son in the face twice with a closed fist. This was during a game for an all-star team. But officials of the minor league baseball declined to comment of the issue.
