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


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — (KRIS) — A domestic violence incident involving a former Texas minor league baseball player was caught on tape.

The Lancaster Barnstormers released the video and announced on their Facebook page that they’ve severed ties with Danry Vasquez.

The video shows a man, identified as Vasquez, and a woman walking into a stairwell and heading down the stairs, when suddenly, the man strikes the woman with his left hand, hitting her in the face.

The video continues to shows the woman being hit twice, then her hair is pulled and the two walk down the stairs, where she is hit a third time.


The Lancaster Barnstormers have released outfielder Danry Vasquez, it has been announced by manager Ross Peeples.

A recently released video out of Corpus Christi, Texas portrays a domestic violence episode involving 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.

“There is no choice but to sever the relationship,” said Peeples. “Neither I, nor the Barnstormers’ organization as a whole, can condone or associate with that behavior.”
