Spirit suspend Rodriguez, ask him to leave team for role in brawl

The entire North Shore Spirit organization expressed its apology to its fans for a brawl that marred this past Sunday afternoon’s win over Worcester.Right fielder Carlos Rodriguez, who picked up a baseball and threw it toward Worcester Tornadoes pitcher Alex Pena, sparking a 27-minute melee, has been both suspended and asked to leave the ball club.”Our ballplayers are educated each pre-season as to the expectations of being part of the Spirit team, and as representatives of the Spirit both on and off the field,” an article on the Spirit website reads. “If this code is broken, then they are asked to leave the club, as are fans asked to leave Fraser Field who break our code of Fan Conduct, posted at the park.”
