Commissioner's Statement regarding Suspension of Ozzie Guillen

|

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today regarding the Miami Marlins’ suspension of manager Ozzie Guillen:

“Major League Baseball supports today’s decision by the Marlins to suspend Ozzie Guillen.  As I have often said, Baseball is a social institution with important social responsibilities.  All of our 30 Clubs play significant roles within their local communities, and I expect those who represent Major League Baseball to act with the kind of respect and sensitivity that the game’s many cultures deserve.  Mr. Guillen’s remarks, which were offensive to an important part of the Miami community and others throughout the world, have no place in our game."
