Little League umpire, Wilton coach drawing flack for fight

WILTON - A video showing a Wilton baseball coach arguing with an umpire is drawing ire from local parents and the Little League community. The video, posted on YouTube, was taken in Oxford as the Wilton 11-year-olds competed in their summer tournament. The manager can be heard screaming at the umpire, who walks away from the confrontation. The league says it addressed both men and has since reminded the rest of the league of its code of conduct. Wilton Little League officials say they are launching a full investigation to see if additional punishments should be enforced. Wilton Little League argument video goes viral
