Let's introduce this guy to a Jason Schmidt fastball

A youth league T-ball coach in Pennsylvania stands accused of paying one of his players $25 to hit a mentally disabled eight-year-old teammate in the head with a baseball so that the boy wouldn't be able to play.

The coach, 27-year-old Mark Downs (no relation, apparently, to the sale items of the same name), reportedly feared losing if he was forced to play the handicapped kid. The league's rules require every available player to participate in a minimum of three innings per game.

If this allegation proves true, I think someone should whack Mr. Downs in the head with a baseball. Repeatedly.
