    Thanks for the links.

    I heard the Gutless One, Willie Harris of the White Sox, who stood right in front of the attack and ran away, said something about not helping because Gamboa was not wearing "black and white".

    If you can find a link on THAT one I'd like to see it.

    "I didn't know if I should jump in or not because I didn't know what was going on," he said. "Two of the guys didn't have on a white-and-black uniform, so it's kind of not my business. I didn't want anyone to get hurt, but [the Royals players] handled it. I think we would've done the same thing there."

    Teenager faces felony charge in juvenile court

    CHICAGO -- The teenager who attacked Kansas City Royals coach Tom Gamboa on the field was ordered Monday to stand trial in juvenile court.

    A date will be set Tuesday for a trial on a felony charge of aggravated battery. The 15-year-old boy, who was not identified, ran onto the field at Comiskey Park with his father at the Royals-White Sox game Thursday and attacked Gamboa.

    The teen's attorney, Assistant Public Defender Christopher Swanson, asked the judge to allow the teen to go home with his mother, but the judge ordered him held in a juvenile facility at least until after Tuesday's hearing.

    During Monday's hearing, the boy, wearing blue jeans and a black and blue T-shirt, stood quietly. His mother, grandmother and other relatives stood nearby.

    Assistant State's Attorney Catherine Gregorovic outlined how the teenager and his father, William Ligue Jr., ran onto the field during the game and ''attacked somebody in front of thousands of people.''

    Last Thursday night during the ninth inning, Gamboa, 54, was coaching first, facing the field, when two shirtless men rushed him from behind. They knocked him to the ground, where they continued to punch and kick him.

    On Saturday, the teenager's father was held on $200,000 bail. Ligue, 34, faces the same felony charge as his son.

    During that hearing, Assistant State's Attorney Colleen Daly described the attack as premeditated and that Ligue had even telephoned his sister, telling her to turn the game on her television because he was going to be on.

    It was just a short time after that call, Daly said, that Ligue and his son ran onto the field and attacked Gamboa.

    Daly said the father told police he ran onto the field because he was angry that the White Sox were losing.

    Ligue Jr.'s sister, Kimberly Richardson told the Chicago Tribune on Sunday she would not bail her brother out of jail and that his actions embarrassed her family.

    "I ain't got $20,000 to put up for him," Richardson told the Tribune. "And for what he did, this stupidity? No, he's not getting out of jail."

    Richardson told the Tribune that Ligue had been on edge in the weeks before the attack. He had just bought a headstone for his 1-month-old daughter, who died in May, she said.

    "Maybe this was a cry out for help from him because there was so much going on in his mind," she said.

    She said Ligue was wearing a pocketknife on his waistband when he ran on the field.
    How the hell did he even get into the ballpark wearing that?!?! Great security there in Chicago! :rolleyes:

    Teen charged with aggravated battery

    CHICAGO -- The teenager who ran on the field with his father during a game and attacked Kansas City Royals coach Tom Gamboa will spend at least two more weeks in custody.


    The 15-year-old boy's lawyer was granted a request Tuesday for more time to gather evidence. A trial date has not been set.


    The teenager is charged with aggravated battery, a felony.


    If he is convicted, the boy's sentence could range from probation to five years in a youth detention center, Assistant State's Attorney Catherine Gregorovic said.


    After Tuesday's brief hearing, Assistant Public Defender Christopher Swanson would not say why he didn't ask the judge to release his client from a juvenile facility. The boy's mother refused to comment.


    At Swanson's request, the judge ordered a television station to save its tape of Thursday's game between the Royals and White Sox at Comiskey Park. The lawyer said he would subpoena the tape.


    During the ninth inning, the 54-year-old Gamboa was coaching first and facing the field, when two shirtless men rushed him from behind. They knocked him to the ground, where they punched and kicked him.


    On Saturday, the teenager's father -- 34-year-old William Ligue Jr. -- was held on $200,000 bail. Ligue faces the same felony charge as his son and could be sentenced to up to five years in prison if convicted.

    Gamboa to see specialist about right ear

    Sept. 24, 2002
    SportsLine.com wire reports

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The hearing in Tom Gamboa's right ear has been impaired since two men attacked the Kansas City Royals' coach at Comiskey Park last week.

    Gamboa plans to see a hearing specialist but hopes the condition is temporary. He had an MRI Monday on his sore neck.

    "My neck feels a lot better," Gamboa said Tuesday. "They wanted to check my cervical spine, but I think it's OK."

    Gamboa was standing at first base during the ninth inning of the Royals-White Sox game last Thursday night in Chicago when a man and his son jumped out of the stands and attacked him. They were quickly engulfed by Royals players, who rushed to Gamboa's aid.

    William Ligue Jr., 34, is being held on $200,000 bail. His 15-year-old son also faces a felony charge. If convicted, the father could be sentenced to up to five years in prison.

    Gamboa first noticed the hearing loss several days ago.

    "I was on the phone and kept thinking I had a bad connection. Then I put the phone in the left ear and I realized the right side was where my face was all swollen up when I came into the clubhouse (after the attack).

    "When I was on the bottom of the pile, the right side of my face got compressed into the ground. Our team doctor thinks (the hearing loss) will go away. But I'm going to see a specialist."

    Gamboa has been contacted by several lawyers who told him he could get money from the White Sox, but the coach doesn't plan legal action.

    "The fault is with the two people who did it," he said. "I'm not one who looks to place blame. It's nobody's fault but the two idiots who did it."

    He's also heard from many apologetic Chicagoans.

    "I've gotten a lot of letters and calls from White Sox fans that I don't even know. They all say the same thing -- 'I'm a die-hard Sox fan and I'm ashamed and appalled at what those two guys did to you and please don't take it as a reflection of our city or our fans cause that's not how we feel.' And I know it's not."
