LAKEWOOD, Colo. — A day meant for youngsters to enjoy some fun outside on the baseball diamond ended in a violent fight between adults in Colorado.

Several injuries, including one serious, were reported Saturday at a youth baseball game in the town of Lakewood.

The game involved children age 7.

The Lakewood Police Department said on Facebook that "coaches and parents, unhappy with a baseball game involving 7-year-olds and a 13-year-old umpire, took over the field and began assaulting each other."

Four people were charged with disorderly conduct and fighting in public.

Police are still working to identify the man in a white shirt and teal shorts.

There were no reports of any children getting hurt.
