Does this mean Baseball is evil and should not be tolerated?

Caught this attention grabbing headline on Drudge,
According to the article, Mets fan Michael Anthony was none too happy that his team lost a ballgame. So he did what any human being would do when faced with the outcome of something which will never matter: He started banging on the walls of his residence.
His father objected and young Michael allegedly punched his old man in the face, which led to Anthony’s mother to get involved. Mr. Anthony then allegedly stabbed his mother and beat her to death with a 20 pound barbell.
Any thinking human being knows that the game of baseball had nothing to do with this man’s alleged actions, but in the spirit of Professor Dawkins’ polemics, a couple of questions must be asked:
- Why should something (in this case Major League Baseball ) which may incite such acts of brutality be tolerated by society?
- Are all fathers who teach their boys to play baseball, guilty of child abuse?
Maybe we should just say no!
