    Dad denies threatening to shoot his son's LIttle League coach

    Wade Campbell told a court that he was sorry for comments at a Little League game, but that he would never use violence.

    By PAT PHEIFER, Star Tribune

    Little League coach Noe Ambriz was visibly scared Thursday as he sat in the witness stand in a St. Paul courtroom, fewer than 20 feet from the man who he said threatened in June to shoot him "down like a dog" after a confrontation at a game two days earlier.

    Ambriz's voice shook and his eyes stayed fixed on the prosecutor as he gave his version of what happened at the Parkway field on St. Paul's East Side on June 22 and over the next two days.

    Wade Campbell, the man charged with making terroristic threats, began to cry when it came time to tell his side of the story. He admitted being angry when he said, "Send this guy back to Mexico," after Campbell was kicked out of the dugout, and muttering "Get a job," when Ambriz's relatives glared at him in the bleachers.

    "I'm sorry I said that, I'm sorry," he said as he struggled to compose himself.

    Its all a joke until someone gets hurt.

    Yeah right.

    I've got an 8 yr old and its sad how worked up parents get over baseball games. And here we go again this year.

    I think its all about whether the parent had a life before instead of thinking that the kid's performance was a personal reflection of the parent.

    There's no crying in Little League Baseball trials.

    That face is enough to give nightmares.

    Even a mother wouldn't love that.
