Five members of the Richmond Spiders baseball team have been suspended by the NCAA for... playing fantasy football.
According to a report by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the University of Richmond first announced on February 17th that five baseball players had committed secondary violations and would be ineligible until the NCAA completed the reinstatement process.
But today it was revealed that all they had done was play a little fantasy football.
Of course, the super strict NCAA considers fantasy sports with an entry fee to be a form of sports wagering, and apparently an infraction worthy of a multiple game suspension.
The Spiders are currently 3-4 on this season, playing without suspended right-hander Keenan Bartlett, who is regarded as the 3rd best MLB prospect in the A-10 Conference.
