Greensboro Kannapolis Fights

There’s been a lot of talk about Thursday and Friday’s events at the Greensboro Grasshoppers game against the Kannapolis Intimidations. The city has gotten some bad press and some of the media is piling on – even the local folks.

For those looking for the videos and audio, you can search YouTube, FOX8 and the News & Record.

Unfortunately, in sporting events, participants are often subject to letting their emotions overtake them in a moment of competition. It happens in most sports.

In one report I read, people were commenting that they would not return to the Grasshoppers. That’s unfortunate, because these things happen in sports as in life. I know that the Grasshoppers organization, the South Atlantic League and even Major League Baseball is concerned about these peoples’ opinions and will do everything in their power to ensure that events like this do not happen in the future.

There will be more fights in the future – you only need look for them…..

Or you can continue to watch sporting events and use these exceptions to teach others.
