SILO, OK -- New details are emerging in the case of the Silo Junior High baseball coach facing felony charges.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, Roy West allegedly told players to quote square up to the ball during batting practice.

The affidavit states, if students didn't square-up or if they flinched or grabbed the spot where they were struck West allegedly punished the students by making them quote "get pegged".

The affidavit says students had substantial bruises consistent with being struck with "significant force" by a baseball.

The school declines to comment on the matter saying it involves a personnel matter.
