Probe clears coaches after softball player's complaint

An internal Michigan State University investigation has cleared two coaches of any wrongdoing after a former player said one of them intentionally hit her with balls.

Outfielder Alyssa McBride said the coach twice hit her with pitches during practice. McBride says it happened after she made unflattering comments about the struggling program. She says she was struck in the left arm and on a wrist.

The East Lansing school said in a statement Tuesday there was no indication she was intentionally targeted and no evidence of retaliatory conduct.

Ingham and Isabella County prosecutors reviewed police investigations and said in June that they declined to file charges.

McBride started 50 games this season for the Spartans and had a .371 batting average. The team's record over McBride's four years was 66-140.
