In a community college baseball game last week pitting Scottsdale (Ariz.) Community College against Yapavai CC (Prescott, Ariz.), Yapavai left fielder Austin O'Such took an unbelievable cheap shot at a Scottsdale runner on second base while running off the field (seen about 20 seconds into the video).
It's unclear why players from both teams nearly came to blows after a Scottsdale player dropped a bunt down the first base line in the top of the ninth inning, as that part of the play happens off camera. What is clearly visible on camera is that O'Such ran full speed towards the Scottsdale runner at second base with his back to him and using his shoulder to take him out. The Scottsdale player was down for almost a minute before getting back up.
"Yavapai college and our Athletic dept. support and encourage good sportsmanship and fair play, we do not condone the actions of our LF displayed in the video. Austin O'Such was immediately suspended and continues to be as we work through this most uncharacteristic incident."
