A high school baseball coach in Utah is on administrative leave now after he tried to dry out a baseball diamond by pouring gasoline on it…and lighting it on fire.

Now the Environmental Health Department is involved and the team is without a coach and a home field!

He got the genius idea when he saw someone do it in a YouTube video from six years ago.

Officials say they have to dig down and test the dirt, to see how much of it’s contaminated and needs to be replaced before anyone can use it again!
