Player: coach pressured me to fake injury
A minor league baseball player in Louiseville, northeast of Montreal, is accusing her coach of forcing her to fake an injury in order to improve the team's chances of winning a game.
15-year old Amelie Girard was so upset about what happened, she told the opposing team.
She told the Journal de Montreal that she took a ball to the shin during the game and although she wasn't hurt, her coach made her claim a serious injury so her turn at bat would be taken by a stronger player.
Her team won the Bantam-A game but the victory is now under investigation by the local baseball association.
