Officials at a New Jersey high school are upset after the outfield fence at the school's softball diamond was moved back about 20 feet without permission.

Freehold Township High School principal Alicia Scelso wrote a letter to parents, expressing outrage over the secret alteration.

“It is extremely disheartening to know that members of the community would interfere with the daily operations of the high school,” Scelso wrote, per Daniel LoGiudice of the Asbury Park Press. “And, I hope, that no member of the softball community was involved in this outrageous incident.”

The move was discovered on April 28, and video surveillance from the evening of April 27 showed multiple cars entering the school parking lot.

Scelso claims the school's athletic director had received several complaints from parents, who claimed the outfield fence was too close to home plate, which was hindering the team's performance on the field.

It is unclear whether or not the fence has since been moved back to its original position.
