KINGSPORT, Tenn. – Video shows a brawl that broke out between parents and fans of two North Carolina girls softball teams at a Tennessee park.
The fight happened Saturday during a 12-and-under tournament sponsored by USA Softball, according to reports by the Kingsport Times-News. Canton’s Blue Ridge Explosion team was playing the East Wilkes Cardinals at the field.
Todd McLemore with Kingsport’s Parks and Recreation Department says a verbal confrontation between two sets of spectators escalated into a chaotic brawl after someone got pushed.
A video shows more than a half-dozen fans tackling each other to the ground amid a flurry of punches and kicks.
No injuries were reported, and no one was arrested, but both teams were disqualified from the tournament.
