Adventures In Crime / T-Ball Hitman

The human capacity to find new modes of criminality always thrills me. This from L.A. Times, July 16, 2005, p. A-8:
"Pittsburgh - A T-ball coach allegedly paid one of his players $25 to hurt an 8 year-old mentally disabled teammate so he wouldn't have to put the boy in the game, police said Friday.
... The boy was hit on the head and the groin with a baseball just before the game, and did not play... 'The coach was very competitive,' [an officer] said. 'He wanted to win.'"
Memo to secretary: if this guy calls to hire me to defend him, I'll be on vacation.
