12 arrested for youth baseball fight

The Lakewood baseball brawl made waves across social and national media

Posted

It was an ugly scene that made waves across the country, including on the Today Show, but Lakewood Police have cited 12 people in connection to a brawl at a youth baseball fight. The ages of those who were cited range between 16 and 55-years-old.

On June 15, police were called to Westgate Elementary School at 8550 W. Vassar Drive as a large fight broke out between adults during a youth baseball game. There were around 15 to 20 people on the field when police arrived. The department’s Twitter page tweeted a video of the fight, asking the public for help to identify those who were involved. The video has 2,918 retweets as of June 30.

Police gave out citations for disorderly conduct, and those who were cited will appear in Lakewood Municipal Court. Two of those who were involved in the brawl are from Lakewood.

A slice of good news

Josh Cordova, a 13-year-old who was an umpire at the game where the brawl occurred, was invited to Coors Field by Chris Guccione, an MLB umpire, during the Rockies game against the Dodgers on June 30. According to Sports Illustrated, Guccione wanted to show support to Cordova.
