Coach Makes Play To Save Boy From Potential Abduction

A coach in San Diego recently made a good play.

A Little League coach reportedly stepped in-between a young player and a man who allegedly attempted to grab the child.

NBC 7 reports the incident happened last month during a little league practice at a field in San Diego.

Coach Scott Hedenkamp says they were in the middle of practice when he noticed a man watching one of his players.

Hedenkamp told NBC 7 says the man watched the boy from behind home plate and, at one point, joined the group on the field.

“He had a one track mind, and he was going to take my player,” Hedenkamp said. “I wasn't going to let that happen.”

The player informed the coach the man was not his father despite the suspect saying that it was time for his ‘son’ to go home.

Hedenkamp said he put his body between the man and the boy, making it clear the 7-year-old wasn’t going anywhere.

Lt. Kevin Mayer with the San Diego Police Department says, “[The coach] did exactly the right thing. This situation he’s the guardian of these children. He stepped up and took action,” said Mayer.

Police arrested 28 year-old Jarrod West for attempted kidnapping and resisting a police officer.
