According to CBS Denver, the fight broke out over a disagreement concerning a call from a 13-year-old umpire, who claimed one of the young players had gone up to bat out of turn.

Speaking with the outlet, Concepción Rivera — whose son plays in the league — noted that “Parents shouldn’t be acting like that.”

“It’s a game, it should be fun,” she added.
