  • Video shows a brawl that broke out between parents and fans of two North Carolina girls softball teams at a Tennessee park

There's no fighting in softball, either.

A brawl erupted between parents at a 12-and-under girls softball tournament in Tennessee last weekend, the Kingsport Times News reported Tuesday (June 19).

The clip shows almost a dozen adults involved in the altercation, as punches are thrown, while others tussle on the ground.

Mobile phone footage of the incident posted on Facebook showed a gaggle of parents rolling around on the side of a hill near the field, while others stood to the side, reports the New York Post.

"I just felt like everybody was really immature", said Lesli Hicks, a mother. "It didn't benefit their children anything, and it just really shows poor sportsmanship".

Gale said local administrators with USA Softball are still investigating this incident but as of right now both teams have been removed from any future tournaments. "I'm a screamer at baseball games. There are parents that are out of control but for the most part what I see locally, everyone keeps themselves well in check", added Hicks.

Witnesses say a call made by an umpire during the game is what sparked the fight. Both teams were disqualified from the tournament at Brickyard Park in Kingsport, Tenn.
