    This guy, if guilty, should be beat over the head with a baseball bat:

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — A T-ball coach allegedly paid one of his players $25 to hurt an 8-year-old mentally disabled teammate so he wouldn’t have to put the boy in the game, police said Friday.

    Mark R. Downs Jr., 27, of Dunbar, is accused of offering one of his players the money to hit the boy in the head with a baseball, police said. Witnesses told police Downs didn’t want the boy to play in the game because of his disability.

    Under league rules, if he’s convicted, he won’t be allowed to coach next season. I hope that really means “for life.”

    Sterilization doesn’t seem to drastic a penalty in this case.

    the poor boy was hit in the head and the groin with a baseball?
    I almost want to believe in hell, so that I can be sure he’ll end up there.
    and that woman, twisted, twisted…
    I guess it just goes to show, “for everything that it is physically possible for a human to do, you can find a human to do it.”
    poor kids.
