Florida baseball players punished for 'Harlem Shake' video

TITUSVILLE — Eight members of the Titusville High School baseball team must perform community service before they can play again after making an after-hours version of the "Harlem Shake" dance on campus.

Florida Today reported Thursday a video of the baseball players' version of the dance sensation got nearly 700 views on YouTube before it was taken down.

Brevard Public Schools spokeswoman Michelle Irwin says the students were engaged in inappropriate gestures while wearing portions of their baseball uniforms.

Some students who learned of the suspensions took to Twitter and other social media, demanding the players be allowed to return to the team.

The coach later told parents the players could return after completing a round of community service. They'll also have cleanup duty after games and additional physical training.
