Also a word from commissioner Rob Manfred today:
“It is clear by all the stories today that they loved baseball and made an impact on their teammates and the Clubs they represented,” he said, expressing “my deepest condolences to their families, friends and fans, particularly those in their native Venezuela.”
Here’s to hoping these arrests can at least add some justice to these senseless deaths.
