Delmon Young, outfielder for the Detroit Tigers, was arrested in New York for purportedly attacking a group of men and making anti-Semitic remarks. He now faces a 7 day unpaid suspension causing him to lose in excess of $250,000 during this time according to reports. Young has no plans to appeal the decision to suspend him.
Major League Baseball commissioner, Bud Selig, announced Young's suspension on Monday evening stating: "Those associated with our game should meet the responsibilities and standards that stem from our game's stature as a social institution. An incident like this cannot and will not be tolerated. I think that Mr. Young is regretful, and it is my expectation that he will learn from this unfortunate episode."
Young faces misdemeanor charges of aggravated harassment hate crime. His court date is set for May 29th in New York where he could be sentenced to 1 year in jail if convicted.
Reportedly, a group of tourists staying at the hotel where the incident occurred were approached by a panhandler wearing a yarmulke. Young began with his anti-Semitic comments toward the group and even pushed one of the men.
Young is building quite a reputation with his temper. If you recall, he was suspended for 50 games back in 2006 for throwing a bat at an umpire.
The Anti-Defamation League made the following comment: "Bigoted words are unbecoming for any professional sports player and anti-Semitism certainly has no place in the game, either on or off the field.'
Tigers chief executive officer, president and general manager Dave Dombrowski claims that some of the details of the incident reported by the media are false but there was no clarification as to which ones.
