The Iowa Games, a kind of Little League World Series for girls softball in Ames, Iowa, had a little extra entertainment on Sunday when a brawl broke out after the Centerville Hot Shots defeated the Nevada Cubs. Of course it was parents and coaches who were involved, reportedly all from the Hot Shots, in a dispute over one of their daughter’s playing time. Photos of the aftermath here.

Officers said 32-year-old Angela Sales, of Centerville, punched coach Todd Sebolt. The coach is also accused of punching Sales. Sales sister, 19-year-old Stephany Summers, was also arrested for punching Sebolt’s wife.

The fight happened in the parking lot following the game.

Bourke said the Iowa Games is all about sportsmanship and having fun.

“A number of (Centerville) parents and coaches did come up to us and profusely apologize for what happened,” Bourke said. “It should have been a happy time for them and unfortunately it wasn’t.”

There is nothing like having your police mug shot taken while wearing both a bandage on your head and a youth softball t-shirt. That is America to me.
