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.

    Just my opinion, but the name of the cowardly left fielder should be in this article.

    Based on their web site, the coward I think is either Austin O’Such or Kyle Young

    I would think that an appropriate response is for every Scottsdale CC pitcher to nail every Yavapai batter until this crap is fixed by the coach.  Even then, I would be really on guard if I werre the second baseman on a DP, or any other infield play.  Someone needs to teach those players on Yavapai a healthy dose of fear of retribution.

    It’s certainly Austin O’Such.  He’s wearing a light colored glove in the video and Kyle is wearing a black glove.  Take a closer look.

    scott.farnsworth@yc.edu – This is who everyone should email – he’s the Athletic Director for the school and you need to let him know that this punk should be expelled!

    I played baseball with Austin at Los Altos High and in little league. Our junior year he went to juvenile detention. Nobody liked him. He’s not representative of Los Altos. He’s dirty through and through.

    He really should be ostracized everywhere.  Very telling the post from the person who played on the Los Gatos team with him.  A cheating, pjlkjflksfzlbslkzcbzckjjzsckjzsclkZJSC:ZSCbnz

    Actions that are so far a field in sports that they are not remotely recognized as part of the sport, and made with such malice, should be treated as criminal.

    Put a hoodie on O’Such and introduce him to George Zimmerman.

    Relax idiots. When you sign up for sports, you sign away “real” social rules in contact sports, and yes, baseball is a contact sport. The coward O’suck will get his. He’s a .220 hitter. He would have flamed out anyway but this will be a nice exit from the sport :D
