A video of a high school softball game in Texas has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. The video, posted by Facebook user Dustin Ferguson, possibly shows McCamey’s Lady Badgers’ catcher intentionally hitting Cisco Lady Lobo’s batter in the head with the ball after catching a pitch.
Did McCamey’s Catcher Intentionally Throw Ball at Face of Cisco’s Batter During Texas Softball Game?
The incident is raising eyebrows, because when McCamey’s catcher threw the ball at the Cisco batter’s head, there was no one on third base, so there was really no reason to even throw the ball in that direction. The video has been viewed over 1.5 million times, and has sparked outrage and condemnation from many people who have commented on it.
According to Jenna Elique of Newswest 9, the University Interscholastic League (UIL), which governs high school sports in Texas, is investigating the incident to take appropriate action. The UIL has not yet released any official statement or decision on the matter.
Some people have claimed that McCamey’s catcher allegedly threw the ball at the heads of two other batters during another game on April 27. McCamey’s coach and principal have not publicly commented on the matter at hand. Was it a dirty play or a mistake, take a look.
The video of the incident has raised questions about sportsmanship, ethics and safety in high school softball. Many people have expressed their sympathy and support for Cisco’s batter, who was reportedly not seriously injured by the hit. Some have also called for McCamey’s catcher to be suspended or expelled from the team and the school.
What do you think of this incident? Do you think McCamey’s catcher should face any consequences for his actions? How would you react if you were in Cisco’s batter’s shoes? This is almost like the softball version of that horrific wrestling match incident.
