Texas Wesleyan Baseball Coach Mike Jeffcoat turned down a Colorado high school student who was interested in being recruited to play on his team. Coach Jeffcoat told the player he no longer recruits any players from Colorado because they have had trouble passing the Fort Worth school’s drug test. He then wrote to the player that he could thank his liberal politicians in Colorado. Texas Wesleyan fired Coach Jeffcoat.
