College baseball coach beat me with bat in pre-game rage, player says in suit – NJ.com

A 21-year-old baseball player has filed a lawsuit alleging his former coach at a New Jersey college beat him with a bat in a pre-game rage last year.

Andrew Phillips, 21, of Collingswood, said he was assaulted in 2018 by Camden County College associate head coach Frank Angeloni when Phillips was a member of the team.

The suit says the team was doing warm-up drills before a game at Northampton Community College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on April 15, 2018 when Angeloni “became angry with the baseball players"

“That was kind of one of those things where I just had to take a second and understand what was going on and appreciate that moment and not take it for granted,” Mike said after the Giants’ 7-6, 15-inning win over the Red Sox. “I made sure to kind of keep my head up and look around and soak it all in because you don’t really get an ovation at an away or opposing park for your home run.”
