He was first arrested in May 2013.

WTVD reported that Ayers began the relationship with the student when she was under the age of 16.

The victim in the case told a judge in court Monday that she became a victim shortly after meeting Ayers.

“He victimized me from the moment I set foot on the softball field,” she said.

The victim also told the judge that he introduced her to his daughter and they were close “like sisters.”

    I think this is not that abnormal for softball players. These guys can’t let go of the dream of playing baseball, so they play a dumbed down version of the game well into their 50’s…

    As a female, I disagree. I had male coaches in basketball and softball. They were better coaches. They pushed us harder and didn’t take any BS.
