LAKEWOOD | The season is over for a group of young baseball players in Colorado because of the fist fight that broke out among adults during a game.

The Bear Creek Junior Sports Association said Wednesday that it has zero tolerance for such behavior and canceled the remaining games for both teams of 7-year-olds.

Video released by police shows men exchanging punches on the field during Saturday’s game in suburban Denver.

Lakewood police are hoping it helps identify a man show punching the side of another man’s head, knocking him to the ground.

Others have already been identified and cited for disorderly conduct.

Police spokesman John Romero says the fight broke out because some coaches and parents were angry with the umpire, who is 13.
