Mike Bacsik assault charges!
« Topic Start: July 16, 2017, 10:39:36 AM »
Mike Bacsik, a former Texas Rangers pitcher and current talk show host for The Fan KRLD-FM (105.3), tried to hit another man during a coaching dispute at a youth baseball game last August, police say.

According to a police report, third-base coach Gilbert Roblez, 59, told police he was helping a new player when Bacsik — the opposing team's coach — complained to the umpire.

Roblez said he told Bacsik to calm down, and then Bacsik reportedly charged at him.

Police say Bacsik pushed Roblez to the ground, then swung at him without making contact. He then got up in Roblez's face saying, "Come on let's do it," in an attempt to fight, according to the incident report.

Bacsik then reportedly pushed Roblez to the ground a second time, twisting his ankle and injuring his neck, police said. Roblez did not seek medical treatment at that time, police said.

Two witnesses confirmed Roblez's account, police said.

Bacsik faces trial later this month on a charge of assault by contact, a class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500.
He did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Too bad he wasn't such a tough guy against Bonds.

If he'd really tried he could have gotten that 84 mph fastball up to 86 and caught Bonds by surprise.

There is a display with his cap in the HoF regarding him and Bonds.  I took a picture, but it's pretty useless...  :icon_frown:

He could well represent our pitching nadir.

Mike Bacsik absolutely seems like the kind of guy who would assault someone at a youth baseball game.
