[7/27/2014] Kikugawa Nanryo High School withdraws from Shizuoka tournament

by on Jul.28, 2014 @ 12:52 am, under High School

The Shizuoka High School Baseball Federation announced on Friday (July 25) that Kikugawa Nanryo High School withdrew from the Shizuoka tournament because of violent behavior within the team.  Kikugawa Nanryo won its first three games of the tournament and was scheduled to play in its next game on the 26th.

The high school reported in June that five first-year players on the team were caught smoking.  The Japan High School Baseball Federation (JHBF) later learned that two players resorted to violence when warning the players about smoking -- one third-year player struck one first-year player and one second-year player struck two first-year players.  The first-year player struck by the third-year player suffered a broken front tooth.  The third-year player told school officials he was worried the team was not going to be able to play in the tournament because of the smoking incident and was upset the first-year players were not showing more remorse for their actions.

The high school did not report the incident because the fathers of the players managed to work things out.  The JHBF found out about the incident when they received a tip and called in to the school on the 24th to confirm the events.
