The Kansas Wesleyan baseball team found paint thinner in their water coolers during a game at Bethany, erupted for 33-2 victory
Here’s an interesting update from college baseball. The Kansas Wesleyan baseball team absolutely destroyed Bethany College last Sunday, winning 33-2.
Unfortunately, that’s not the reason for this post. Bethany College is currently investigating an allegation that someone within their baseball program deliberately tampered with the water coolers that Kansas Wesleyan was using during their doubleheader.
According to Kansas Wesleyan University athletic director Steve Wilson, a staff member on their team discovered a “foreign substance” that had been mixed into the team’s water during the doubleheader on Sunday.
Kansas Wesleyan and Bethany are 22 miles apart in central Kansas and are longtime rivals in athletics. Both teams are NAIA schools that play in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference.
Is that enough reason to put paint thinner in your opponents’ water cooler? Probably not, but I’m not surprised a group of kids tried to kill their opponent by poisoning them. Middle America is a wild place.
A question that no one seems to be asking is what the hell did the paint thinner do to the Kansas Wesleyan offense that made them avoid a 3-game sweep and erupt for 33 runs in a seven-inning game?
Is it possible that they added the paint thinner themselves knowing that it would act more like a steroid/stimulant to power their team to one of the greatest offensive outputs in collegiate baseball history?
I don’t know. Honestly, if the 76ers blow a 3-0 lead, I was planning on drinking paint thinner anyways but I thought it would kill me. I had no intention of giving it a try and becoming an offensive powerhouse but maybe it’s still an option to take my mind off of NBA basketball.
