MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The captain of the Minot State University baseball team who allegedly was assaulted over the weekend is out of the hospital.

Authorities say outfielder/first baseman Keith Ailes was taken to a hospital for treatment of facial injuries early Saturday and spent a day there.

Minot State University dismissed one football player and suspended indefinitely two others after the alleged assault on Ailes. No criminal charges were immediately filed against those players. Minot police say they’re continuing to investigate.

Football coach Tyler Hughes declined to comment on the details of the incident but said he’s disappointed in what happened.

The football team’s season-opener is Thursday against Southwest Minnesota State.
