All this talk about bullies and bullying I decided I'd start my own thread.
My parents divorced when I was 10 and was raised primarily by a single mother we didn't have much money and I didn't have very nice clothes or gear when I played sports. So like all these kids do the kids who did have a father in the house and nice clothes and gear would pick on me because I was wearing second-hand clothes.
I managed to save up enough money to register for Little League baseball I had a second hand glove and old cleats but I was happy just to be there.
Well after a few weeks of practice it was time for opening night all the teams would show up in their new uniforms and gear and line up on the fields and we would have a opening ceremony.
There was these twin brothers on one of the other teams who obviously were better off than me and had brand new McGregor gloves cleats looking pretty good and there I was with my second hand gear they started chewing on me pretty good.
All the parents were up in the stands and the coaches were up front close to the Baseline while all the kids were in the field so there were no parents or adults close by. So I had enough I freaking bum rushed their ass throwing Haymakers knocked the first guy down with one punch then proceeded to ground-and-pound the other one till he was a bloody mess by the time the coaches got there I had destroyed these two guys
Then these kids parents ran to the field called me an animal and demanded I be thrown off the league they rushed me up into the league president's office.
Well by the time I got up there I was crying pretty good and the league president a real hip Cuban dude ask me what happened when I told him that they had been making fun of me because I had used clothes he immediately took my side and told the parents that they needed to teach their kids some manners
So no more problems from people at the baseball park that year or any other year for that matter
