Back in June, Paxton resident Tonya Carpenter was hit with a broken bat at Fenway Park. The flying piece of wood hit her in the face at 110 mph while she was attempting to help her seven year old son clean up the ketchup he had accidentally dumped on himself. Because that’s what seven year olds do. They make messes.
Her road to recovery has been long and hard. This is the type of story you would think the Boston Red Sox, the man she married, and the community would rally around. So far only one of those has shown that they give a fuck.
Brett Lawrie, the Oakland Athletics player whose splintered bat struck her directly in the face, has been the only MLB player to acknowledge what happened. He sent a floral arrangement to her hospital room when she was in intensive care.
But guess who hasn’t said a PEEP? Your Boston Red Sox. Not one single player, coach, or member of the organization has so much as sent her a card, or a message of condolences. This coming from an organization that pretends to have a soul by pushing the Jimmy Fund every year. If they really cared about people in their community, then why aren’t they reaching out to Tonya Carpenter? Oh yea, because she already paid for the tickets, so she’s served her usefulness to them.
The answer is of course, that the owners of the Boston Red Sox are human garbage. The Red Sox are only the third piece of pie in John Henry’s portfolio, after Roush Racing and Liverpool FC. Larry Lucchino and Tom Werner have no souls. They gladly accepted her money for such good box seats, but they were too busy writing $20 million checks to the worst pitcher in baseball to bother with sending Tonya Carpenter a card. And honestly, Tonya Carpenter could probably pitch better than Rick Porcello too.
A woman who battled for her life after being severely injured at a Boston Red Sox game is now facing a new fight: a custody battle with her ex-husband.
After spending time in rehab for a traumatic brain injury, Carpenter is now recovering at home.
Now, her former husband is seeking to take custody of their 7-year-old son, according to court documents obtained by necn.
George Carpenter alleges in the court documents that his former wife “is on numerous medications, is not able to drive due to her condition and requires 24/7 supervision.” He is seeking physical custody of the child — permitting his former wife parenting time “upon her ability and the best interest of the minor child” — and child support payments.
The couple divorced in 2014. At the time, documents show Tonya Carpenter was given physical custody, while George Carpenter was allowed parenting time every other weekend and he was ordered to pay $250 a week in child support.
Tonya Carpenter says in court documents that her ex, who was caring for the child while she was in the hospital and rehab, has now refused to return the child to her care. The child, who was at the game when the mother was hit, is currently undergoing counseling.
Tonya Carpenter slammed her former husband’s actions on Facebook.
“I was hit by a bat at 110mph at Fenway watching my son’s ketchup drop on his lap eating his hotdog…my EX-husband decides since this traumatic experience his opportunity is to take MY only child away and get full custody…I have spent the entire week in Worcester court and finding strength somewhere some how fighting for life, strength and the power of him to never ever take away what I live and breath for,” the post reads.
Does it get any lower than this guy?
I mean, I’ve seen scumbags before, but taking advantage of a freak accident to take a child away from his mother? George Carpenter is the king of all dooshnozzles. You have to have no soul to do something like that.
Look, men and women aren’t equal, despite what short haired single women with cats have told you. Women are naturally superior parents, and as a result kids love their Mom more than they do their Dad. That’s just a fact. I realize there are exceptions, but kids have completely different relationships with their Mom’s than they do with their Dad’s.
I mean, imagine being this poor seven year old kid. You’re at a game with your Mom and you see one of the most horrific things possible happen. You’re already somewhat damaged emotionally because you are witnessing your parents go through what appears to be a nasty divorce. Now your Dad is trying to take you away from your mother, who you just witnessed being hit in the face by a baseball bat? What the fuck is wrong with this poopsmooch?
So why is he doing this? Tonya Carpenter is clearly well enough and alert enough to write a coherent and scathing Facebook post about this Dooshnozzle McGee over here, so we know it can’t possibly be because he thinks she won’t be a good enough Mom. Does this look like a woman who isn’t physically able to care for her child?
Nope. She looks like a fully capable mother to Turtleboy. As usual, we say follow the money. This guy has to pay $250 a week in child support. Now he sees a way out of it, and he can fuck over his ex-wife at the same time. Sure, you have to completely sell your soul to do that, but when you’re George Carpenter and you have no soul, it’s really not that hard at all.
Unfortunately, this is one problem Turtleboy Nation can’t solve. I would imagine her lawyers will wipe the floor with his asshat in court. The only thing he’ll have on her is the fact that he’s a six figure union stooge, and she’s unable to work until she fully recovers. A REAL man in this situation keeps sending the checks, and adds a little bit more on top. But this clown isn’t a real man. He’s just an asshole who wants to get revenge on his ex-wife and is willing to use his seven year old kid as a pawn in his game.
I can’t wait to watch him get destroyed in court. Some old school, Kramer vs. Kramer shit. Go Tonya!!
