The Miyazaki High School Baseball Federation announced that Miyazaki Kaiyo High School was pulling out of the Miyazaki Tournament due to a school-related issue.  School officials confirmed that drinking within the team was the reason.  The incident came to light when members of the board of education were informed about a photo that was posted to Twitter that showed a number of students drinking at a hotel when the team was in Fukuoka in June for an away practice game.

Eight male students from Amagasaki Sosei High School, including one member of the baseball team, were confirmed to be drinking in a photo that was posted to Twitter.  According to school officials, the image revealed a number of students, including one member of the team, sitting at a table with mugs of beer and ashtrays that contained cigarettes butts.  The photo was reportedly taken in June.

Individuals that saw the photo contacted the board of education on the 4th.  The school followed up with the student and contacted the Hyogo High School Baseball Federation.  They are still planning to compete at the Hyogo Tournament, though the student will not be allowed to participate.

Five male players and four female student team managers complained of feeling sick during the opening ceremony and the first game of the Yamanashi Tournament on Tuesday.  None of the nine students were in serious condition and did not require hospital care.  The Yamanashi High School Baseball Federation believes the individuals may have been suffering mild heat strokes.

Two male players and four female managers were not feeling well during the opening ceremony that started at around 8:45am.  Three male players complained of cramps in their legs during the first game that started at 10:30am.  The nine were given water and cooled off at the infirmary.
