Disturbing video shows Texas minor league baseball player hit girlfriend


Graphic surveillance video has been released showing a minor league baseball player repeatedly hitting his girlfriend inside a Corpus Christi stadium.

The video shows Danry Vasquez walking into a stairwell with a woman, who he then hits forcefully several times as they go down the stairs, while pulling her hair

The surveillance video was taken on Aug. 2, 2016 inside Whataburger Field, the home of the Corpus Christi Hooks baseball team.

KTRK in Houston says Vasquez completed a pre-trial program and served no jail time for charges stemming from the abuse. 

The outfielder was released from his new team, the Lancaster Barnstormers, this week after the Pennsylvania team’s management became aware of the video, according to WPVI in Philadelphia.

If you or someone you love is the victim of domestic abuse, you can contact the Family Crisis Center at (865) 637-8000.
