The media learned on Saturday that a second-year student on the Seiryo High School baseball team struck a first-year player in the face back in September that caused injuries that required stitches inside the mouth.  The Japan High School Baseball Federation issued the school a stern warning, dated back to October 16.

According to school official, the incident took place on September 2 during a player meeting that took place after practices.  The second-year student punched the first-year student in his left cheek with his right fist.  The first-year student suffered a chipped tooth and a cut inside his mouth that required four stitches.

The second-year student told officials that the first-year student had a bad attitude during the meeting and that he lost his patience.  The next day, the two players told the manager the injury was caused by a errant ball.  On October 9, the Ishikawa High School Baseball Federation received an anonymous tip and contacted the school to conduct investigations.  Practices were suspended for a week, beginning on the 11th.
