Seven home early – NU baseball players return after incident

Seven members of the Nevada Union varsity baseball team were reportedly sent home to Nevada County earlier than the rest of their teammates, following an undisclosed incident at a tournament in San Diego earlier this week.

“I know some type of incident happened and it’s going to involve an investigation,” said Nevada Union principal Marty Mathiesen Wednesday.

Mathiesen did not elaborate on what the apparent incident entailed.

Ted White, Nevada Union’s head coach, said seven players and a team scorekeeper were sent back to Grass Valley ahead of the team’s scheduled return, which is expected later today.

“Seven kids got into trouble and they were sent home,” White said by phone Wednesday from San Diego. “That’s really probably all I can say until we get back to school and figure things out.”

The Miners were in San Diego to compete in the 55th annual Lion’s Club Invitational Tournament, which began play Monday and concludes with championship rounds today.

Neither Nevada Union nor the Bear River varsity team, which also competed in the invitational, advanced to the championship brackets of tournament play.
