Video: Softball game ends abruptly after pitcher purposefully hits umpire with ball

A recent game between the Cal Cruisers and Minors Gold was ended prematurely when an umpire appears to have been hit in the facemask with a softball on purpose.

As you can see from the video, the incident occurs on the very first pitch after the coach calls a team meeting around the mound. It is hard to say with certainty that the coach ordered his pitcher and catcher to purposefully plunk the umpire, but the video evidence sure looks conclusive.

If intentional, this spectacle epitomizes a bush league play.
