Toyama Shogyo High School was invited to play in a series of games by the Toyama High School Baseball Federation. The media learned on Friday that the high school declined the invitation after they found out a second-year student on the team was exercising violence against a first-year teammate. The incident was reported to the prefectural high school baseball federation.
According to reports, school officials learned late last month that a second-year student was exercising violence against a first-year teammate during practices. The first-year teammate did not suffer any injuries. The school has not released any other detailed information regarding what happened.
The second-year student has been punished and has apologized to the first-year teammate.
