PAGING Mark Downs: Your Table Is Ready Here in Hell
by Scott Long
If you missed this story, here is quick breakdown of what happened.
A Dunbar man, Mark Reed Downs Jr., is accused of offering to pay a 7-year-old boy $25 to injure an autistic 8-year-old teammate before a June 27 game so the older boy would be unable to play the league minimum of three innings, according to state police at Uniontown.
The 8-year-old boy was hit by two throws from the other player prior to a game, police said. He was treated at The Uniontown Hospital and released the same day after a baseball hit him behind his left ear and in the groin, police said.
Maybe I'm extra sensitive to this story, as my daughter suffers from learning disabilities, but this scumbag is a real piece of shite. Personally, I think a fair punishment would be for this classless douche to get the same treatment he inflicted on the boy, with Randy Johnson being the one to deliver it. (Big Unit circa 1998)
Coach Mark suffers from a Downs syndrome that he was not born with, but developed on his own.
