arent some of you form naperville?

Lefthander Ian Krol, No. 26 on the High School Top 100, has seen his season come to an end before he even made a start. According to the Chicago Sun Times, Krol was suspended for the season after his second violation of athletic code of conduct. The punishment came down after he was allegedly found to be in the presence of alcohol.


In an e-mail to Baseball America’s Conor Glassey, Krol explained that he went to a basketball game with another young man that had brought alcohol in the car. Krol said he called his parents to pick him up. The young man was pulled over later by police for allegedly driving under the influence. The driver told police Krol had been with him earlier, which was relayed to the school’s administration.


"Unfortunately I made a poor choice by going to a basketball game with a guy who had brought alcohol in the car," Krol said in the e-mail. "He told the police that I wasn’t drinking but just being in the presence of alcohol is a violation of our school’s athletic code. I shouldn’t have gone to the game."


An Arizona signee and the ace of Neuqua Valley High (Naperville, Ill.), Krol went 9-1, 0.98 in 2008. Baseball America recently featured him in a story about cold-weather pitchers, which subscribers can read here.


Neuqua Valley was set to open its season on March 28, but the game was rescheduled for March 30.


He got monumentally screwed.

This is a joke, if high school athletes can't be in the presense of alcohol, then presumably everytime they enter their own home they are violating the athletic code of conduct. I would love to see how this thing is written, but if he wasn't drinking and made a responsible choice then this seems like an overreaction. Also his friend is a nark, and if I were the kid I would not hesitate to kick his ass.
