Xaverian Baseball Coach Charged With Assault And Battery For Moving His Argumentative Player Away From Ump So He Wouldn’t Get Ejected

Fox 25 News: A baseball coach at a private school in Westwood has been suspended after an allegation of assault during a game. Xaverian Brothers High School confirms Gerry Lambert, a teacher, and graduate of the school was involved in “a physical altercation” with a student-athlete. Lambert has been charged with one count of assault and battery. The incident happened during a baseball game against St. John’s Prep. A witness told Boston 25 News the student was arguing with the umpire and Lambert walked out, grabbed him by the neck and pulled him off the field. 

“We do not condone aggressive behavior by any member of our school community,” the school’s headmaster, Daniel Skala, said in a statement. 

Lambert has been placed on leave and the school says it is cooperating with authorities. The victim is a 17-year-old and a junior at the school. 

“Last night he was okay to the extent that we could see visibly, and by that I mean it wasn’t the type of case where we show up and someone has broken bone, thank god, or bleeding or a black eye, something that required medical attention,” Westwood Police Chief Jeffrey Silva said. “It was an unconsented to touching, and therefore it’s an assault and battery.”

Police say they haven’t seen any video of the incident. Lambert is charged with “simple assault,” meaning he won’t be arrested unless the assault is witnessed by a police officer. 

Oh for fuck’s sake. We’re doing this again? It’s Xaverian. They turn boys into men, and they don’t put up with crappy behavior. It’s why parents shell out top dollar to send their crotch fruits there – because they’re allowed to discipline kids in ways that public schools can’t. And Fox 25 News is showing up at this guy’s house like he’s a child molester, shoving a camera in his face.

The kid was arguing balls and strikes. If you do that you get ejected. The coach wanted to save his player from getting ejected so he walked up behind him and pushed him towards the dugout, and in order to have leverage he used ONE HAND to grab the BACK of his neck, not the front. When people kill other people by choking them do they ever choke the back of their neck? Nope. Because you can’t kill someone that way.

This is the most insane thing I’ve ever heard and shame on the Westwood Police for CHOOSING to do this. Normally I support law enforcement but this is a gross misuse of police powers. Some idiot parent called up and complained about this, but they didn’t have to arrest him. They chose to. No one got hurt. There was no bruising or cuts. An adult at a sporting event just saved one of his players from getting ejected.

Here’s my question – if the player had refused to leave the field what would’ve happened? Eventually the cops would’ve been called. And if he refused to move for them they would’ve grabbed him, possibly by the neck, in order to bring him into custody. So it’s OK when they do it, but it’s ASSAULT AND FREAKING BATTERY when the coach does it. Makes sense.

Gerry Lambert is another one of those coaches who has been at his school since the beginning of time, leaving a long legacy of players behind him who vouch that he was a fundamental part of who they are today. Read all these glowing things other coaches are saying about him hereThis is exactly what helicopter parents and society in general doesn’t want today. They would prefer we raise an army of pussies, and want coaches and teachers who let kids “express” themselves. Instead of being a hard ass they want coaches to sit down and talk to kids about why they’re misbehaving. Public Schools have no choice but to buy into this because they work for the public, but if private schools like Xaverian have to as well then we have completely lost the culture wars.

If you know who the parent was that actually called the cops to complain about this then email us at or message TBNews on Facebook. We’d love to make them Turtleboy famous. This type of behavior from parents needs to end before it turns this country into an army of soy drinking beta males.

    Kid should have been ejected. Maybe it could have been a teachable/coachable moment. Coaches there are rule/player handbooks follow them. Most of all protect yourself from helicopter parents and entitled athletes with tempers. There are other athletes out there that may never have the opportunity to be coached by you. So many people lose in this situation.

    The School did not call the police, as that would never happen in a situation like this one-This isn’t public school people. The parent of the player involved in this story called the police.
    The player told the opposing bench/umpire to f*** off.
    The coach then went to get his player to escort him back to dugout so the situation would not escalate.
    Coach Lambert is a great teacher, coach and man. Give me a break.

    The judge better do the right thing and dismiss this case with prejudice. And Xaverian better step up and suspend the kid for being a Richardhead.

    This is such fucking bullshit. The kid should’ve been suspended for at least for 3-5 games for arguing balls and strikes which is against MIAA High School Baseball Rules. The coach still should not have grabbed him but the the kid deserves to be punished too.

    Good luck coach, you did the right thing with a smug little piece of shit. If his mother comes to his defense I will be glad to give her a donkey punch. Luckily I coached rugby where violence was the norm and the pussies just quit.

    He wasn’t arrested. Did you bother to read the article? Simple A&B is not arrestable is MA. He was CHARGED with A&B. Thats different than being arrested. He’ll be summonsed at a later date. It’s only arrestable if it occurred in the presence of the police.

    This is a major crime and felony. Jail this whiteman pronto.
    This isnt his culture so why is he culturally appropriating black behavior he should know better and as a result should get jail time in my humble opinion.

      EXACTLY. Wtf tb? You reported wrong. The cops did not arrest him. Clear it up. You piss all over msm for doing exactly what you just did.

        Usually, TB gets the inside scoop and calls it what it is. A little overdramatic, but everyone needs a hook. I get it. This time, way off base! The kid said one thing about the call only after the coach screamed and swore at him. Normally, the coach is a good dude. This day, he freaking snapped. Bad day? I don’t know. Who knows? But he snatched the kick by the back of the neck as the kid was walking off the field on his own, face planted him into the netting it went ballistic. So the cops should do what? Nothing? Yeah, ok. Choke the kid like a chicken in front of a stadium full of people. “911 can I help you?” “Yes, a coach just grabbed a kid by the neck and shook him like a chew toy.” “Sorry, TB says that a school matter. Got to go, donuts are on sale. Two for a dollar.” Give me a break, TB! “Usually I support the cops…” until I make up my own false narrative, print wrong shit (he wasn’t arrested) and then requote snippets of other news outlets who probably taped a full blown explanation, but picked what they thought was the juiciest. You shit the bed on this one, TB. Love you generally, but this is fakenewzapalooza.

    At my prep school the shitty hockey coached bragged about drinking and smoking weed with his players at the annual dinner. No biggie. If you don’t like it then go to public high school.

    And now the coach’s career is probably ruined, and if they pursue legal assault charges against him, his life will be over as well.

    Attention Football Coaches: Do not yell and your players to run faster because you might hurt their feelings. Never try to get them to do any better than they are already doing, and NEVER tell the guys they run like a bunch of girls.

    Meanwhile in Boston’s thug and mug high schools teachers, cops and adults are terrorized on a daily basis and slapped around by the kids and no one does anything especially when the kids overrun the red and orange lines.

    I wonder which parent who’s major league prospect kid isn’t getting enough playing time reported this. All those hitting sessions and AAU seasons to be picking splinters out of your butt cheeks

    17 year olds are full of testosterone and are hot tempered. You have to break a colt before he becomes your trusted horse.

    Same thing here. Give the guy his job back

    You would think the kid would be out front supporting the coach. I know I would because I’ve been there.

    Coach should be reinstated, kid kicked out of school, his right hand cut off, presented to the parents in a little box along with note stating “World needs more bartenders.”

    We have to stop using the word “pussies” to describe people~
