Forget a lifetime ban ...

... Jose Offerman needs to go to jail! What a no-class punk.
Jose Offerman was banned for life by the Dominican winter league for throwing a punch at an umpire during an argument on the baseball field.
Minor compared to what else he's done ...
On Aug. 14, 2007, he was batting for the Long Island Ducks against the Bridgeport Bluefish in an independent minor league game when pitcher Matt Beech hit him with a fastball. Offerman charged the mound with his bat and swung at least twice, striking Beech and Bluefish catcher John Nathans.
Sounds like assault with a deadly weapon to me.

Hell I am just surprised that the winter league even disciplined him. Maybe they could make a bobble head of him flailing around swinging a bat at people to pay the proceeds of Nathan's lawsuit against him.
