Rockies First To Face The MLB’s Domestic Abuse Policy
The Colorado Rockies are the first team to face a new Major League Baseball policy meant to address players accused of domestic violence.
MLB commissioner Rob Manferd put Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes on leave last week following a charge that he assaulted his wife in Hawaii. He'll likely face a suspension after courts decide his case.
Colorado Matter's Nathan Heffel spoke to journalist Kiley Kroh. She's covered baseball and domestic abuse for ThinkProgress, which describes itself as a nonpartisan but progressive news site.
