The Evil Batman of Little League Disputes
Imagine if you were Bruce Wayne. But instead of dedicating your life to defeating crime by becoming a terror of the night, you put all that time and money towards creating an unstoppable Little League team. You’d be this guy, is what:
“Angered after his own son failed to flourish on the Long Island Infernos traveling baseball team for 10- and 11-year-olds, Robert Sanfilippo used his own money [$50,000] to create and fund the Long Island Vengeance to even the score against his boy’s former squad, a law-enforcement source said.
Obsessed with vanquishing the Infernos, Sanfilippo aggressively recruited players in newspaper ads and appealed to kids cut from other teams, sources said.”
Is he a hero? No, probably not. Is he crazy? Yeah, I’ll give you that.
