The Saitama High School Baseball Federation announced on Thursday (7/7) that Koshigaya Higashi High School was withdrawing from the Saitama tournament after they found a number of second and third year students beating first year students.

According to the high school, on the evening of the 5th, three third year students and two second year students used physical violence (kicking in the stomach, striking buttocks with bats) in order to "discipline" nine first year students (improper greetings and bad attitudes during practice).  The details were uncovered when a guardian/parent consulted with a teacher the same night.
