Del Campo Players, Coach Suspended After Investigation Into JV Baseball Brawl
CARMICHAEL (CBS13) – Five students and one coach on Del Campo High School’s junior varsity baseball team have been suspended in the aftermath of a brawl against Yuba City, according to a school district official.
The fight, a video of which was posted on YouTube and has generated thousands of views, took place during a tournament game April 2 at Granite Bay.
Del Campo’s principal and athletic director conducted an investigation that concluded Tuesday afternoon, according to a spokesman for the San Juan Unified School District. The school suspended two players for two games, three players for one game, and the coach for one game, spokesman Trent Allen said.
Yuba City Unified previously suspended eight players for the entire season for their actions in the incident, according to the Appeal-Democrat. Those players also suspended five days from school, the newspaper reported.
The Yuba City players appeared to be the aggressors in the video, and the fight reportedly started when Yuba City’s pitcher threw a ball at Del Campo’s first-base coach after the coach yelled at the pitcher’s mother.
