His nine-year-old son.

Police charged Ray Boudreau of Enola, Pa. after he allegedly struck his son twice with a closed fist at a game last Monday. Boudreau's lawyer Brian Perry says the boy had been ejected for throwing his helmet after being called out at third base.

Perry admits the dad handled the situation poorly, but claims he hit his son on the back. After that "father-son moment," according to court papers the umpire and scorekeeper called police, who later arrested the coach at his home. An officer says he observed redness on the boy's face.

Not a whole lot of positives to take away for the young Boudreau, but at least none of his teammates can ever claim he gets cushy treatment for being the coach's son.
