Diagnosis: Little league parent syndrome.
The mother, who had custody of children, sought to keep the father from his son’s little league games due to inappropriate and public “criticism and disparagement” of the coach’s decisions.

The court directed that both parents were to follow all league rules concerning parental conduct.
