McCabes Launch Effort to Prevent Referee Abuse
Pete McCabe Jr. is on the road to recovery one month after he was slammed in the face with a football helmet after refereeing a semi-pro game in Rochester.
Helping McCabe recover are the get-well-wishes from hundreds of people, many of which hang in McCabe’s living room.
McCabe Jr.â€™s son Pete McCabe III said, “Whether it’s sitting here or laying down right here on the couch watching TV, just looking up, he’s able to see the support he’s got behind him. It’s been phenomenal.”
While theÂ father recovers, the son is hard at work on changing the law.
Through facebook he has attracted nearly a thousand supporters of legislation aimed at stricter penalties for assaults on sports officials.
