Lawn Guy Land Ballcoach Beatdown..

...for benching his boy.

Two loutish Long Island brothers were arrested after they beat a baseball coach in front of the coach's son and the other terrified 11-year-olds on his team, cops said Wednesday.

Frank Basile, 48, and Roger Basile, 43, both of Bellmore, were charged with third-degree assault after beating coach James Edge so badly that he was taken to a hospital with a concussion and other injuries, police said.

"There were several witnesses there, including adults, who saw this guy (Frank) Basile go up and pummel the coach," said Sgt. Anthony Repalone of the Nassau County Police. "He didn't even have a chance."

Edge, 45, said the fracas at a Bellmore park erupted on Tuesday evening after he benched Frank Basile's son for swearing during batting practice.

"He's a great kid, but he has a foul mouth," the coach said.

Fly, tell me they are not your kin!
