In 2007, several members of the De Anza Community College baseball team were accused of raping a then 17-year-old girl at a house party in San Jose.

20/20 looks at the police investigation that failed to produce any criminal charges.

Correspondents also talk with the three women who say they rescued the drunk and unconscious victim.

"A door couldn't stop us, boys couldn't stop us. I mean it was just fight or flight and we were going to get her out of there," says witness April Grolle.

"There were a lot of people who were drinking a lot of alcohol, and a lot of different stories and a lot of fuzzy memories as a result. So as you know it was very controversial and a lot of people were very upset that there was a decision not to prosecute," says 20/20 anchor Elizabeth Vargas.

But, the baseball players aren't entirely in the clear. You can find out about the legal action they still face on this 20/20 special on "Teens and Drinking."
