LITTLE SILVER, N.J. (AP) — A benches-clearing brawl during a high school baseball game in central New Jersey ended with both teams getting ejected and a parent facing a simple assault charge for allegedly attacking a player.
The Asbury Park Press reports that Saturday morning’s brawl started when a Red Bank Regional player tried to score on a bunt play and collided with the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional catcher. The two players began fighting and other players from both sides soon joined in.
During the scuffle, authorities say a 49-year-old Rumson man went on to the field and attacked a Red Bank player, who was not seriously injured.
The game was tied at 1-1 when the fight broke out. After order was restored, the umpires immediately ended the contest.
