Why Did Domingo German Hit His Wife?
Due to his intoxication, Domingo German became physically hostile towards his wife and hit her.
At a charity dinner hosted by former teammate CC Sabathia in 2019, New York Yankees pitcher Domingo German is said to have slapped his fiancée, according to reports.
The revelation was first reported by Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, who noted that the specifics are part of Major League Baseball’s probe against German.
A domestic violence investigation on charges against the right-hander resulted in him being placed on administrative leave in September 2019.
He was suspended for 81 games for breaching the National Football League’s domestic violence policy and was forced to sit out the remainder of that season as well as the entire truncated 2020 season.
Many of German’s 2019 teammates and their families attended the charity event, according to Adler.
The focus of the league’s inquiry, however, was on the pitcher’s alleged domestic violence incident with his girlfriend later that night. Claims that German was inebriated and abusive toward his fiancée were made by numerous league sources .
The wife of another Yankees player apparently phoned German’s girlfriend, and they both showed up at the house with their husbands. As a last resort, German’s friend stayed with the pitcher while his wife stayed with the victim.
