Baseball Coach Suspended After Forcing Players To Spit In His Face

A high school baseball coach in Currituck County, North Carolina, has been suspended after he forced his players to spit on him.

Justin Hill, who coaches at Currituck County High School, was suspended for one game on April 17, almost two weeks after the spitting incident on April 6, WAVY.com reports.

Sources told the station that Hill was angry when nine players skipped practice on Friday, April 3.

At the next practice, Hill ordered all the players to spit in his face, which was his way of calling their tardiness disrespectful, according to FayObserver.com.

Hill eventually apologized to the team, according to WKBN.com.

Neither Hill nor school officials have responded to media inquiries.
