The opposing player had just hit a home run Wednesday and was rounding the bases when the pitcher charged the player from North Central Texas College.
The baserunner — who was ejected for taunting — was suspended for two games. Additionally, other players from both teams were suspended due to their roles in the aftermath of the incident.
The conference suspended for two games “all team members for NCTC that were in the dugout or bullpen” and any assistant coaches who stepped onto the field. It also suspended four additional Weatherford players and assistant coaches for two games.
The Weatherford College Student Services Office also handed down additional disciples to the player, a Weatherford athletics department statement said Thursday, though the department declined to release details, citing college policy and federal regulations protecting student privacy. After the Wednesday incident, the athletics department said in a release that the student faced potential expulsion from the school.
Both teams ultimately forfeited the game, which was the first of a four-game series between the schools, NTJCAC said Thursday.
Games two and three are considered North Central Texas College forfeits because the college can’t field enough players for the games due to the suspensions, a release from Weatherford College said, adding that the fourth game is scheduled to be played Saturday.
The Weatherford College Police Department is investigating the incident and has taken statements, the Weatherford statement said.
The athletics department said Wednesday the pitcher faces potential disciplinary action, including expulsion from the college.
“The unfortunate events at Weatherford College will be used as a teaching moment for our student athletes to help ensure these incidents do not occur in the future,” the NCTC statement added.
CNN reached out to both schools Thursday but did not immediately hear back.
