On September 18, 2002, William Ligue, Jr and his minor son, the infamous Shirtless Father and Son Duo, attacked a visiting baseball coach during a game at Chicago's Comiskey Park.
Royals first base coach Tom Gamboa had his back turned toward home plate when the Ligue family rushed onto the field and attacked him.
They were then beaten senseless by the entire Royals team and promptly arrested.
Yes, these guys are a couple of low life scumbags, but at least they did things together as father and son. My dad and I never participated in the highly publicized cowardly beatdown of a much older man; we were never on Sportscenter together.
Actually, I think they did it to get on television. They claimed to have been taunted by Gamboa, but witnesses say otherwise. I imagine this conversation:
"Wanna be on Sportscenter?"
"Let's beat the ass off that first base coach."
I also bring them up to prove that not everyone who does this sort of thing is from the South. We have a bad reputation out there. Some people think we are ignorant of the tapas restaurant phenomenon, for God's sake! It's refreshing to highlight the brutal stupidity of folks from a big ol' sophisticated place like Chicago.
UPDATE: Where are they now? What has become of our shirtless ne'er-do-wells? Well, the father is in prison for violating his parole and the son was recently arrested for planning a drive-by shooting. A drive-by? Why does that kid think it's okay to just randomly attack someone?
