Scottsdale CC baseball player receives cheap shot from Yavapai thug (Video)
Scottsdale Community College came back from a 6-0 deficit to beat Yavapai College 10-8 in their baseball game last Thursday. But the score and action in the game isn’t what’s receiving the attention — the unbelievable cheap shot by Yavapai left fielder Austin O’Such is. Keep your eye on second base around the :20 mark:
We have no idea what led to the fight and cheap shot, but it’s pretty obvious O’Such thought he was going to get away with ramming the runner at second. It should come as no surprise that O’Such, a freshman outfielder from Los Altos, Ca., played football in high school.
Yavapai College’s athletic director, Scott Farnsworth, confirmed to Larry Brown Sports that O’Such committed the cheap shot and was suspended immediately. He issued the following statement to LBS about the incident:
“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.”
UPDATE: O’Such has been suspended for the season.
