Coaches under fire after argument with umpire caught on camera

WILTON - Two Little League coaches are under fire after being caught on camera in an ugly confrontation with an umpire.

Artie DiRocco and James Longo were ejected from a Little League baseball game in Oxford last weekend for verbally assaulting the umpire.

Parents say this isn't the first time DiRocco and Longo were ejected from a game for this behavior.

Wilton Little League issued a statement that they are fully investigating all the facts surrounding the situation and that there have been disciplinary actions levied against the coaches involved.
