MLB official thought Manfred would nix Hernández for Series

NEW YORK (AP) — A major league official testified he suggested Ángel Hernández be removed from consideration for the 2015 World Series because he did not think Commissioner Rob Manfred would approve the umpire to work baseball’s premier event.

Hernández sued Major League Baseball in 2017, alleging race discrimination and cited his failure to be assigned to the World Series since 2005 and MLB’s failure to promote him to crew chief.

Documents and depositions from pretrial discovery were filed late Friday night and early Saturday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan as part of Hernández’s motion for a partial summary judgment.

A member of the big league staff since 1993, the Cuba-born Hernández worked the World Series in 2002 and 2005. He was not picked after Joe Torre was hired in 2011 to head baseball operations.

A discussion of a current lawsuit involving an umpire of note for all the wrong reasons- and something of interest to read in full, as, even in short form, there are quite a few details of interest that are neither included in the quote or involve that subject.

Talk about chutzpah. Manfred should decree that from now replay challenges should be referred to as the Angel System since Hernández was so instrumental in making challenges necessary.
