The media learned today that four first- and second-year students on the Kagoshima Josei High School baseball team poured hot water on a first-year teammate that required a one-week hospital stay.

According to high school officials, on August 20, four students obtained hot water at the cafeteria in the boys dormitory and poured it on a first-year teammate in a bath area.  The first-year teammate attempted to contact his parents, but had his mobile phone taken away from him.  Concerned about getting caught, the four students agreed to tell people the first-year teammate chafed his skin.

The school suspended the four students indefinitely.  The Japan High School Baseball Federation issued one-month suspensions to the four students and gave the school a stern warning.  The first-year teammate filed a report with police.
