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.

But to make matters worse her ex-husband might be the biggest scumbag we’ve EVER encountered on Turtleboy Sports. Here’s what he’s doing from NECN:

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!!

    I wish George Carpenter the worst. I hope karma is cruel to him. I’m glad this story is out there and getting attention.

    Please. You’re supposed to love your child more than you hate your ex-spouse. And I’m always leery about any parent who ‘lives and breathes’ only for the child, because it’s not about your feelings, Mom and Dad, but about your child, period. When resolving custody disputes the judge has no duty to either parent and must base the decision on what is in the best interests of the child – and generally this means custody is awarded to the child’s primary caretaker. Whether that’s Mom or Dad is irrelevant to the court (barring a major development, such as Mom suddenly robbing banks for a living). And for the record, often that IS Mom – folks, it’s not a conspiracy!! A schedule is always established for continuity of care but that doesn’t mean the custodian can’t be flexible. We can never know what went on in this marriage or in this divorce. From the outside looking in, it certainly seems the mister is acting contrary to his child’s best interests. He should be modeling attributes of a true parent, supporting his child’s mother however he can. I wish Tonya well, I believe she’ll prevail, I’m sorry she has to work so hard while in the midst of a difficult recovery.

    I thought you were going to say how tragic it is that this 7 year old boy only gets to see his father every other weekend. I thought you were going to say that and rant about how tragic that is and how his chances of developing into a stable, compassionate, insightful, and happy young adult would increase because he was allowed because he was allowed continuous and consistent contact with both parents and perhaps they wouldn’t write such hateful, self-revealing drivel. BTW, what do you mean by short haired single women with cats refers to?

      Militant, psychotic misogynists masquerading as feminists. That’s what “short-haired single women with cats” is referring to. AKA, the people who have co-opted the feminist movement into a mouthpiece for man-hating troglodytes to spew their venom about men and any woman who has the audacity to not blindly agree with everything their movement says.

    Well, you need to do your research. The Red Sox did pay for the hotel room for family members while they stayed until Tonya was through the worst part of her hospitalization. It’s not enough, but it is some.

    So for all of you calling this guy a jerk and other names, let’s think for a minute, if the situation was reversed would you be saying the same about her? I wonder how long she would have waited before serving him? We’d likely never know, if the situation was reversed I doubt it would even be a story.

    • Wabbitt
      July 7, 2015 at 12:23 pm

      Well, here’s the thing…

      In this country, the criminal justice system is heavily weighted toward the mother in custody situations. The mother has to be a massive, raging dumpster fire for the father to get primary custody. So if George was the primary caregiver and was the one who got clocked with a bat, and Tonya was the one who was now taking advantage of the situation, the eyes of the general public would be looking on her even LESS favorably than it is George. Because we’d all be wondering just how big of a fuck up she is that she didn’t have custody in the first place.

        Exactly! And mothers not paying child support to fathers is rarely talked about, when it should be viewed the same way: father has custody, you pay support. Women act like men just getting the child is enough and it would be an insult to ask them to contribute! Flawed system

    What a jerk. Only a scum sucking jerkoff would try to take advantage of this situation. He’s clearly a jerk and his children will see this one day and realize what an asshole he truly is.

    As far as the Red Sox go, do you know for a fact that they haven’t “stepped up to the plate”? Maybe they do not want it publicized that they are helping Ms. Carpenter so as not to encourage others who may “accidentally” get injured at Fenway…just a thought.

    • GoneWest

      Why would they not want it known? Seems like a great opportunity for publicity; which would probably be their motivation if they done so in the first place.

    I have known both Tonya and George for many years and I can tell you George is just doing this for the revenge. He’s more interested in drinking that raising a child whereas Tonya has put her heart and soul into raising her son. George is a vengeful ass. I hope our legal system comes through for Tonya.

        can you read? The comment is in response to the writer’s view of the Red Sox efforts with the Jimmy Fund.

        • Wabbitt
          July 7, 2015 at 12:00 pm

          Except that the implication was that the Sox shill for the Jimmy Fund constantly. They implore their fans to shell out for this (admittedly) worthy cause. But when something tragic happens IN THEIR STADIUM, nobody says word one. Not saying they should have offered to pay for her hospital bills, but a supposedly stand up organization would have at least sent a front office lackey with a card to see how she’s doing.

          Because they’re all for their fans giving more money, but they don’t want to open their own check book.

            July 7, 2015 at 3:14 pm

            That tiny little indemnity clause on the back of the tickets probably does stand up in court. Can’t say I recall too many people successfully suing hockey teams after getting cracked in the teeth with a puck.

    Turtleboy, you are 100% wrong on this one. George is an amazing person and father. I’ve known him for my entire life and will vouch for him %100, sorry but you’re not even close on depicting him in the correct light, George is a devoted father and would do anything hing for his son.

    • Meeee
      July 6, 2015 at 9:30 pm

      And I know Tonya and know how she is an amazing and loving mother! Everything she does she has her son’s best interest in hand. There is a good reason why she has custody and he has visitations and its not my responsibility to go there. Let this wonderful mother keep on healing and getting better and let them stay together! I honestly think that separating these two would be worse on BOTH of their recoveries!

      Guess you don’t know his as well as you think. He has put his son in danger at least twice and you probably have no clue. Devoted father? He never asked for any extra time with his son prior to this tragic event.

      Turtleboy is 100% dead on and there’s more he has done recently to rub it in Tonya’s face. Might want to get the WHOLE story next time.

    • Frogshit
      July 7, 2015 at 5:52 am

      Well Carl, by looking at this story one would say that your buddy George is 100% SCUM. No matter the hatred he holds for his ex-wife, there is a reason that she was awarded custody in the first place. Could be due to scheduling. Finance. Work. Living quarters. Who knows? But for this guy to pull this shit to save on his support checks is just low. Sorry, hard sell to tell me this guys got it…

        Any six figure earner paying $250/week is getting the deal of a lifetime. If he is in the six figure club and that’s what he pays then the first thing Tanya needs to do is dump her lawyer because that lawyer SHOULD be mopping floors.

      • Sue
        July 12, 2015 at 4:02 pm

        There’s a reason. She got custody in the the first place: because she’s the mother and she’s alive and not actively incarcerated. That’s ALL it takes to be awarded primary custody as the child’s mother. God forbid both parents love their child and want the majority of time with them. Unfortunately a father cannot just be a great dad to get custody. The ONLY way a father could be awarded primary custody is by tearing down the mother, and it’s just too bad. So try some marriage counseling first because someone’s always going to be disappointed for how the custody agreement plays out.
