(Provo-AP) -- A University of Utah baseball player facing charges in connection with vandalizing a white block Y above Provo was in court yesterday.

Jason Price is one of eight baseball players facing felony criminal mischief charges for painting red Us on the Y above Brigham Young University. The 20-year-old appeared in court before Judge Anthony Schofield yesterday.

Six others were also scheduled to appear in court but Schofield says most of the players had not received summons. Another player's court date was postponed until July because of attorney conflicts.

The players were arrested after an employee developing pictures of them applying the paint called police.

If convicted, each student faces up to 15-years in prison and up to a 10-thousand dollar fine.
