Yuba City stays mum on brawl discipline

Although Yuba City Unified School District officials report they have conducted a "thorough investigation" into Monday's fist-swinging brawl between Yuba City High School and Del Campo JV baseball players, they do not indicate what, if any action, they have taken against the players involved from Yuba City.

A video that has gone viral on YouTube shows more than a dozen Yuba City players sprinting across the field at Granite Bay High School toward first base after the Honkers' pitcher threw a ball at a Del Campo assistant coach in the sixth inning with the game tied.

At least three Yuba City players can be seen throwing punches at a handful of Del Campo players as they try to turn their backs to dodge the blows.

"Due to state and federal confidentiality laws, the district cannot release information specific to any student," the district said in a press release. "… However, the behavior displayed at the game will, in all applicable circumstances, subject players to both removal from the team and suspension or expulsion from school."

The Yuba City team already has been suspended from play until Monday.

San Juan Unified School District spokesperson Trent Allen said the district is still conducting an investigation of Del Campo's behavior during the incident and expects to have "something early next week."
