No witty header here

This is just depressing.
A father is accused of punching his 9-year-old son after a baseball game, apparently because he was upset by his son's performance.

The boy suffered a black eye and bruises, according to a police report filed by the boy's mother. The mother took out a protection order, and according to that affidavit, the father swung his right fist at the boy while they were riding home in the car after a baseball game. The boy had struck out twice in the game.

The report said the boy suffered a fat lip, black eye, bruised brow and bruised ear. The mother said she confronted her husband and asked him what she should tell the boy's teachers. He allegedly said to tell them that the boy doesn't listen.
