Man Who Attacked Kansas City Royals Coach Going to Jail

March 11, 2006 - Posted at 12:25 p.m. CST

CHICAGO (AP) _ A judge in Chicago has ordered a nearly five-year

prison term for William Ligue Junior, a Chicago-area man who

ran onto the field at White Sox Park in 2002 and socked kansas City

Royals first-base coach Tom Gamboa.

Ligue had been sentenced to probation for the attack, but

Circuit Court Judge Joseph Claps ruled yesterday that Ligue had

violated his probation terms when he was arrested in 2004 for

reportedly breaking into a car and stealing its radio.
