Aichi Toho University informed the media on Tuesday that they had taken disciplinary action against its baseball manager for hitting a member of the baseball team last year.

According to the report, sometime back in October 2009, the manager struck a player in the face 5 to 6 times because he wasn't practicing the right way.  The player fell down and sustained minor injuries to his neck and right hand.

Over 20 of the 50 some odd players on the team approached the university to have them look into the incident.  Upon confronting the manager, he admitted to striking the player and also said that he had hit two other players in the past.

On January 6th, the university handed out a one week suspension to the manager.  The university is still looking into the other two incidents the manager mentioned.
