A statement from USSSA
Posted by DW on September 10, 2021, 4:01 pm
USSSA is aware of a viral video circulating that shows a verbal altercation between two teams taking place at a recent slow pitch event. The event was not affiliated with USSSA in any way, however, some of the athletes who can be seen in the video are registered with USSSA. The allegations made in the video are disturbing, and we are working quickly to expedite an internal investigation to gather more information. At USSSA, we have a no-tolerance policy for violent or unsportsmanlike conduct of any kind, both on and off the field, including any behavior displayed at non-USSSA sanctioned events. We will take swift disciplinary action against anyone involved in this incident who is found to be in violation of our policies.
We would also like to acknowledge that USSSA has no affiliation with the TikTok handle @usssa2021, and that USSSA’s official TikTok handles are @playusssa and @usssafloridapride.
