The Kansas Wesleyan University baseball team believes that they may have been poisoned. The team found a substance in their coolers as they were playing Bethany College.
Lindsborg Police Chief Michael Davis said that the substance could be paint thinner. He confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation into the matter.
“We are looking into it and both schools are cooperating with us,” Davis said to Kansas.com.

KWU Barstool – which is not affiliated with the school or Barstool Sports – posted a picture on Sunday. The caption of the post said, “Putting paint thinner in our water coolers to get our baseball players sick and still getting toasted by 31 runs is WILD. Stay classy! Glad all our players are okay #buckfethany”
A police report was made on Monday by the school. The home team, according to Davis, provided water for the opponents.
We do not know if that was the case this weekend. Davis was not able to confirm that.
