Baseball team severs ties with player after release of domestic violence video

Lancaster Barnstormers release outfielder

A Venezuelan baseball player was arrested, ordered into counseling and has been cut from two professional teams in the USA after a video surfaced allegedly showing him physically attacking the woman he was dating at the time.

Despite the severity of the incident, it appears the woman being beaten in the video has forgiven Vasquez. It shows the now 24-year-old Venezuela resident beating a young woman, striking her at least a half-dozen times as they made their way down the stairs. The video shows a couple enter the stairwell and as soon as the door to the concourse shuts, Danry Vasquez, strikes the victim several times on her head and facial area.

While playing for the Hooks, a minor league affiliate of the Houston Astros, Vasquez was arrested in August 2016 on a misdemeanor assault family violence charge. After the Hooks released him, he spent two seasons in the Venezuelan winter league, according to Sports Illustrated.

Today, we've confirmed the case has been dismissed, and we've obtained video of that assault.

Lancaster Barnstormers Manager Ross Peeples also released a statement about the termination of outfielder Danry Vasquez after viewing the graphic video.

KRIS6 says the case against Vasquez was dismissed after he complied with conditions set by his plea deal.

The KRIS report said police identified the man in the video as Danry Vasquez, a former prospect for the Houston Astros.

Reynolds said they were told about an "altercation" regarding Vasquez but did not have access to the video at the time of his signing and went through their normal vetting process for Vasquez. "Upon being made aware of the nature of the incident, the Barnstormers made a prompt decision to cut ties with the 24-year-old outfielder", the statement adds. The Astros eventually released Vasquez not long after they received an affidavit detailing the incident, and Major League Baseball suspended him indefinitely following the events.

"Neither I, nor the Barnstormers' organisation as a whole, can condone or associate with that behaviour".
