The altercation, according to a Sacramento Bee report, came following a Division III Sac-Joaquin Section playoff game in Carmichael where Del Campo High School defeated Buhach Colony High School 3-2 in an exciting walk-off win.

Video obtained by the paper showed Buhach Colony parents and the game's umpires involved in a tense back-and-forth after the game in the parking lot. Eventually, the situation escalates to where one of the participants is seen swinging a backpack at someone, who retaliates by throwing a right-hand punch back.

Buhach County baseball coach Kevin Dawidczik told the Bee the scuffle made him "sick to his stomach."

"I had a parent tell me umpires were getting attacked," Dawidczik said. "I sprinted as fast as I could to get those umpires. I can't believe that would ever occur at my facility."

"We need more coaches who understand umpires are there to help our kids. They are going to get calls wrong and right. We aren't always going to agree with them. We have to support these guys. We have to," he added.
