Mitch Williams Reportedly Called a 10-Year-Old a “Pussy” and Then Had His Pitcher Throw at the Kid

Deadspin has obtained video and additional eyewitness accounts of Mitch Williams’ behavior at the Ripkin Baseball youth tournament last week. In addition to getting into a heated argument with an umpire and being ejected, Williams also reportedly called the opposing team’s 10-year-old pitcher a “pussy” and ordered his pitcher to throw at the kid:

While video of the Saturday ejection is still suspiciously unavailable, we were able to acquire footage from Sunday’s championship game between the Williams-coached Jersey Wild and SJ Titans, another elite 10U baseball team from New Jersey. The film at the top of this post shows an interaction between Williams and some SJ Titans players. Multiple witnesses report that interaction consisted of Williams calling the SJ Titans pitcher “a pussy.” Children on the team heard this, and one asked his parent on the ride home what it meant. The comment sparked a meeting behind home plate between SJ Titans coaches, umpires, Williams, and a handler (one witness called him a “babysitter”) assigned by Ripken Baseball to keep Williams in line after Saturday’s ejection.

Here’s video of an incident that happened in the fifth inning, when the SJ Titans pitcher came to bat in the leadoff position. Watch as Williams says something to his catcher, after which the catcher goes out to the mound to say something to his pitcher. SJ Titans coaches and players overheard this interaction, and report that Williams ordered his pitcher to intentionally hit the SJ Titans batter with the first pitch. One witness told us it was in an attempt to knock the SJ Titans pitcher out of the game.

Deadspin has video of both incidents, though the quality and lack of audio makes it difficult to tell exactly what’s going on. But judging by the video of Mitch confronting Lenny Dykstra at an autograph signing, I’d say he was in his hostile stance here.

  1. I haven’t seen chin music like that since k@cie mc-dong-le met andrew wiggins

  2. In Mitch Williams’ Defense, the kid was named Joe Carter.

  3. Yeah pretty much every member of the 93 team was and continues to be white trash, a drunk, literally insane, or all of the above. Well, probably not Milt Thompson. He seems normal.

      Boy, did you nail that fact . They were all trash and the only decent guy on the team was Eisenreich. On photo day, only Fregosi and Eisenreich interacted with the fans, Dykstra, Kruk. Williams and Daultonn blew the fans away like they were distractions. 21 years later, I am glad Carter took Williams long. Williams cost them at least two games in that series, and now he is held in high regard. He is a bum and a lousy pitcher in his time.

      As to Dykstra, he and Daulton survived that car crash, and never learned a lesson. I am sure Mikey Miss took sloppy seconds as I am sure Dykstra went to WIP first and got a “no way in the world” reply. As the saying goes, …”Never learned to say hello until it was time to say goodbye.”

  4. Doesn’t Scott realize how douchey he looks in this pic?

    Sleeveless tops with deep necks and long slits are extremely trendy and favorites for the younger generations.

    Yeah that’s not good at all. Hope Mitch’s health is Ok given all the serious problems many Phillies have had. Should probably get a full medical check up just to be safe,

    what the fuck are these people constantly yelling at… fucking cheering warm up pitches? i think the NJ water gives residents brain tumors…

  8. Saw this guy in person once and he is the ultimate douchebag!!! You would think he won the 93 series instead of blowing it. He’s always been a weirdo.

  9. I once yelled “brush him back” at the tv, while watching the little league World Series, but that was for America.

  10. Thanks 4 taking my call

    I blame the red kool-aid drinking Phillies fans for keeping the steroid taking,beer guzzling “93” Phillies relevant.

    Red Sox & Yankees fans wouldn’t acknowledge past teams that have come up short,but in Philly 2nd place teams r celebrated.

    2001 Sixers
    1993 Phillies
    2010 Flyers
    2004 Eagles

    What do they all have in common,they didn’t win the big one.

    Philly fans,stop celebrating these runner up teams like they’re world champs,you guys are embarrassing yourselves.

      You’re a fn jerkoff!!! The yanks cheated the last 3 titles with AROID,rocket and Andy. Ted Williams, Jim rice, Yaz and Fisk are still treated like gods. Get your fucking facts straight before you open your mouth pussy!!!! You’re probably from S jersey with no affiliation with any team. Get a clue you POS who probably never played a sport on your life!!! SCUMBAG FUCK!!!

    My son happens to play for the Titans now (actually playing in Ripken now…). I’ve had the pleasure of seeing good ole Mitch digging his wisdom teeth into children under 12. He called the kid a pussy? He’s a pussy and sucks at life. Great way to raise the youth.. to be little pricks and have a general lack of integrity for the game. He should be fired from Comcast because much like being a loser closer he sucks at broadcasting too.

    One Love – Joe Carter

    • He still works for comcast? I got directv so I wouldnt know the answer to that, thought he was just mlb network.

        I’m standing here talking with people about this whole thing and I’ve been informed the Wild Thing no longer works at Comcast (my apologies for being out of the loop). Actually nobody could really say where he works because frankly nobody gives a fuck.

        On a last note somebody I know had a bbq and used Wild Sauce. My son ate a bunch of coincidentally Gave up 2 HRs the next time he played.

  15. Yell at me like I'm a ten year old

    May 18, 2014 at 5:09 pm

    Mitch losing his MLB Network job over this is ridiculous. This type of behavior at Little League games is normal.

  16. Mitchie Poo is a piece of human excrement who needs to be flushed.

    Will someone please knock this fucker’s teeth out?
