52-year-old Boyd Waldmann was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct. He had faced up to six months in jail for the misdemeanor charge.
Witnesses told police officers the teams were exchanging high-fives after a lopsided defeat of Waldmann’s team on Sept. 24 when Waldmann grabbed an opposing player by the shirt and lifted him nearly off his feet, yelling at the boy. Waldmann later said he was angry because the boy slapped his hand too hard.
Waldmann has been banned from Omaha Suburban Athletic Association events.
