Knight fights at daughter's game
The Associated Press
ALBANY, Ga. Former Reds manager Ray Knight was charged with disorderly conduct after striking a spectator during an argument after his daughter's softball game.
Knight and Jimmy C. Smith were both charged.
Smith told the Albany Herald that Knight told one of his players who had been walked to run before the umpire signaled ball four. Smith yelled from the stands for Knight to let the umpire do his job.
Knight approached Smith after the game; an argument ensued, which included name-calling by both men. Smith said he told Knight: You couldn't play with the big boys and couldn't coach up there, so you have to ... coach a girls' softball team.
The comment prompted Knight to strike Smith in the ear with his fist, opening a small cut, Smith said.
