I read about the incident that caused an early end to the championship game in the Bantam League (GVN, Aug. 18).

The answer to keep the game going appeared o have been almost elementary; someone at the game {should) use the cell phone, dial 911, wait till the police arrive, point out the “cockroach” who was … “heckling, threatening, intimidating, using profane remarks, and threatening to spit at someone,” and the police will take this person away.

Then the game resumes. Gardena’s finest does the job. Everyone is happy.

But in conclusion, I wonder how many people, adults, coaches, and players did not have a cell phone handy? And why the reluctance to phone the police?
