Appeals court skeptical of Ángel Hernández lawsuit vs Major League Baseball


AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals expressed skepticism of umpire Ángel Hernández’s attempt to reinstate his race discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball. The Cuba-born Hernández, hired as a big league umpire in 1993, alleged he was discriminated against because he had not been assigned to the World Series since 2005 and had been passed over for crew chief.
