This is one of the stories that only seems to get better with each paragraph: via the New York Observer, suspender-clad septuagenarian and CNN icon Larry King decides to intervene in the baseball game of his 9-year-old son, with less than successful results:
According to this source, Mr. King was told by the umpire in question to “regroup” and calm himself, and he did not respond well to this. Rather, the informant said, he continued arguing and was then relegated to the bleachers, where he continued to make noise, and was finally forced to watch the game from the outfield’s periphery.
On the scene witnesses dispute the severity of the charges, laud King for “spiciness!”:
“He absolutely did question an ump’s call,” said this spy. “He was asked to cool it.” But there was no profanity used, nor was subsequent disciplinary action brought against the celebrity dad. “He’s one of the valued volunteer coaches; I’m pretty sure that he’s coaching today,” Mr. King’s champion said. “I like his Bronx spiciness!”
But wait, there’s more!
Chance is the son of Mr. King, 74, and his sixth wife, actress Shawn Southwick, 49. They were married on September 5, 1997, in a Jewish–Mormon interfaith ceremony.
