Fourteen members of the Baylor baseball team have been suspended for parts of the upcoming season due to a hazing incident that took place in February 2019. The suspensions were announced by Baylor vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics Mack Rhoades Friday through a press release.

Each student-athlete involved will be suspended two games over the next three weeks, beginning with the season opener against Nebraska next Friday.

Rhoades said the university does not take hazing incidents lightly.

“Our priority is to provide a safe and caring environment for all student-athletes,” Rhoades said.
