Dude, it’s just a kids’ baseball game. Youth coach arrested for stalking rival

Lighten up man! 45-year-old Robert Sanfilippo of Yaphank, NY was arrested for stalking a rival baseball coach and his family.

Sanfilippo, who coaches 10- and 11-year-old boys, got into a dispute with another coach during a tournament in May. He apparently bought an untraceable cell phone and used it to send harrassing text messages to to the man, threatening to harm him, his son and wife.

“I didn’t know it was him at first,” the victim John Reardon told Newsday. “It was nerve-racking. I couldn’t sleep. When he suddenly started mentioning my son by name, it just hit me that it was this guy.”

Newsday/AP also reports that ‘The texted threats included blurry photos that appeared to be taken from a long-distance zoom lens, with one showing Reardon waiting with his son for the school bus and another of his wife taking packages out of the car.’

That’s when it got scary and that’s when I went to the police,”.

Robert Sanfilippo, you sir are a Dick.
