This is absolutely disgusting, and all the players involved should face charges, and banishment.
The Texas Rangers are investigating an incident — after eight prospects took hazing to a new, and awful level.
The eight prospects were questioned and told by police not to leave the Dominican Republic after a Snapchat video surfaced of players allegedly masturbating an underage teammate in a hazing incident, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan.
Eight Texas Rangers prospects were questioned by police in the Dominican Republic after a video showed a group of players sexually assaulting an underage teammate in a hazing incident that targeted players new to the team’s Dominican complex, sources familiar with the case told Yahoo Sports.
While prosecutors in the Dominican Republic have yet to press charges for the alleged assault, they told the court they intend to charge at least four players who held down a teammate and masturbated him, sources told Yahoo Sports.
To make matters much worse — the brother of Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor, also named Rougned, is expected to be charged, along with Yohel Pozo, one of the franchise’s top prospects.
Both players are only 19-years-old.
The incident — which took place at the end of October — was snapchatted in a 10-second video, in which the alleged victim was pinned down on the bed by four men, while four other men assaulted him.
In the incident, the accused players, and the victim for that matter, were seen laughing about the whole thing.
