    The team name was the Liberal Bee Jays, sounds like something the one straight guy at a PETA gathering would like.

    Glad I scrolled down first because I was going to post the same thing. Loved the Weekly World News in the 90s; so goofy, so fun.

    Fuck. That's just horrible. And the poor kid was wearing a helmet.

    Not sure who I feel worse for - the family of the boy who all must be beyond heartbroken, or the college kid who accidentally clocked him and has to live with the thought of that for the rest of his life. :down:

    They should go to wiffle ball bats. Then we would all be safe.

    This happened to my science teacher in the seventh grade. Her husband and her two sons were practicing baseball in the park and one boy swung the bat and hit the other boy in the chest.

    By some bad luck, the hit was enough to kill the younger boy. It stopped his heart.

    She came back to school after a couple of months and she was a hollow shell of a human being.

    I used to love that paper. I used to buy them for me and my friends to read at the bar Saturday nights before we hit the clubs.

    I actually hit someone in the face like this when I was 10 or so. Kid was standing right behind me and I swung HARD trying to hit a ball tossed at me. Hit him right on his upper lip. He cried and ran home just few doors down and I chased after him cause I was so worried and felt so bad. His mom brought him in and wouldn't answer the door or let him out for hours. Not knowing how he was killed me inside. He came out that evening and his face was fucked but he wanted to play with all of us :jj: Looking back its so crazy parents were never called or checked on at all. It was like his mom told him to sleep it off then didn't worry about it. Anyway, cool story bro tldr.

    Go ahead, read the New York Times if you want to. They get lucky sometimes... ;)
