Lancaster Barnstormers release player for alleged domestic violence incident
LANCASTER, LANCASTER COUNTY -- The Lancaster Barnstormers have released a player for his alleged involvement in domestic violence.
The team made the announcement about outfielder Danry Vasquez on Facebook, saying a recently released video shows a domestic violence incident in Corpus Christi, Texas that involved the 24-year-old.
The team says once it was made aware of the nature of the incident, it made the prompt decision to cut ties with Vasquez.
“There is no choice but to sever the relationship,” said manager Ross Peeples. “Neither I, nor the Barnstormers’ organization as a whole, can condone or associate with that behavior.”
