OSU pitcher Heimlich excuses himself from games

OSU pitcher Heimlich excuses himself from games


I’M GOING TO BREAK ALL THAT DOWN COMING UP. JENNIFER: ANOTHER BIG STORY, OREGON STATE PITCHER LUKE HEIMLICH, BENCHES HIMSELF, AFTER REPORTS SURFACED THIS WEEK, THAT HE PLEADED GUILTY TO CHILD MOLESTATION WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL. THE BEAVERS ARE JUST A WIN AWAY FROM THE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES, OUR ANDREW DYMBURT WAS IN CORVALLIS, AND FILED THIS REPORT. ANDREW: THE ROAD TO OMAHA. GOES THROUGH CORVALLIS AND THE NATION’S NUMBER 1 TEAM, THE OREGON STATE BEAVERS. I THINK EVERYONE IS REALLY EXCITED FOR THE GAME. ANDREW: BUT LINGERING OVER THE ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE, A DARK PAST FOR A PLAYER WITH A BRIGHT FUTURE. IT WAS KIND OF A SHOCK. NEVER KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT IT, IT WAS JUST KIND OF THERE. ANDREW: THIS WEEK, KOIN 6 OBTAINED COURT DOCUMENTS THAT BEAVER’S PITCH, LUKE HEIMLICH, PLEAD GUILTY TO FELONY CHILD MOLESTATION IN THE FIRST DEGREE. ACCORDING TO THOSE DOCUMENTS, THE VICITM, WAS A 6-YEAR-OLD GIRL. AMIDST THE SWIRLING CONTROVERSY, HEIMLICH DECIDED TO BENCH HIMSELF. IN A STATEMENT HE RELEASED JUST HOURS BEFORE A CRITICAL SUPER REGIONAL GAME, HEIMLICH SAID IN PART I’M SO PROUD OF OUR TEAM’S , ACCOMPLLISHMENT AND DON’T WANT TO BE A DISTRACTION. THEREFORE, I’VE RESPECTFULLY REQUESTED TO BE EXCUSED FROM PLAYING AT THIS TIME. HERE’S WHAT HEAD COACH PAT CASEY HAD TO SAY, AFTER HEIMLICH DECIDED TO SIT. I THINK THAT IS LUKE’S DECISION. HE IS A TEAM GUY. IN HIS STATEMENT, HE SAID HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE A DISTRACTION. ANDREW: FANS WE SPOKE TO SAY HEIMLICH MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE IN BENCHING HIMSELF. NOW THEY JUST WANT TO FOCUS ON BASEBALL AND A TEAM THAT’S POISED TO MAKE A RUN TO THE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES. I MEAN AS A PERSON YOU KIND OF JUST PUT BASEBALL ON THE SIDELINES IN THAT RESPECT. BUT I’M STILL A FAN AND I’M STILL HERE TO SUPPORT THE BASEBALL TEAM. I’M NOT TRYING TO GIVE HIM A SLIDE ON IT BUT LET BY GONES BE BY GONES TO A POINT AND MOVE ON. ANDREW: HEIMLICH IS A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER. HE IS NOT FACING ANY LEGAL TROUBLE. HE ALREADY SERVED HIS SENTENCE WHILE STILL A HIGH SCHOOLER. MAKING THE DECISION TO SIT, THAT MUCH TOUGHER ON THE FANS, TORN BETWEEN THE MORAILTY OF HIS CRIMES AND THE FACT THAT HE ALREADY PAID FOR THEM IN THE EYES OF THE LAW. JENNIFER: ANDREW SAYS HE WILL NOT PITCH TOMORROW EITHER.
