, 24-year-old Vasquez, a #Venezuela
native, was released by the #AtlanticLeague
after footage of the 2016 incident surfaced late Tuesday. Stating that a lot has happened since he assaulted #FabianaPerez
Field in #CorpusChristi
“This incident happened almost two years ago,” Vasquez said. “I’ve truly changed. I’m engaging in activities that have helped me change. I’ve matured as a person and I know what I did, or at least what was seen, which shouldn’t be seen as an example or anything that can be amended.”
Vasquez has completed requirements of his probationary sentence in connection with the attack, including a 52-session batters intervention course.
“I’m actually married, and not with the woman with whom the incident occurred,” Vasquez said. “I respect, value and love my wife. She has supported me throughout all of this and has been there for me unconditionally the whole way.”
Vasquez also acknowledged that the footage is hard to watch. “I also realize that scenes from this incident were powerful,” Vasquez told the outlet. “As a public figure, I should be setting a better example. Today, I ask for forgiveness and want to show that this will not happen again. I understand there will be more backlash and I’m leaving everything in God’s hands.”
Meanwhile, Fabiana spoke to #Univision
about her relationship with Vasquez. Saying she didn’t want to press charges at the time, which she said she now regrets.
“Now, when I watch the video, I remember things and I say: ‘How could this have happened, why did I not do anything, why did I not react?’” Perez said, according to a translation of the interview.
“May God forgive him, only he knows what he did,” Perez said. “If I had the conscience I have now, I would have made another decision.”
