Re: Patrick Cleburne's Blog: Not Wanted: Young American Baseball Players
Here's one foreign-born baseball player who took a job from an American kid.
Julio Castillo, who Joe Guzzardi first profiled in his August 1 2008 column, and most certainly is a beneficiary of the liberal visa policy for athletes, was convicted of felonious assault and sentenced to thirty days in jail and three years' probation for a throwing a baseball at a fan. [Castillo Gets Jail, Probation, Associated Press, August 6, 2009]
The Dominican Republic native Castillo, who entered a not guilty plea, had been in the U.S. less than one month when his violent behavior caused an innocent fan to be sent to the hospital with a concussion.
