League commutes suspensions for Lachance, Lebron

The League commissioner has announced that the 10-game suspensions previously given to Brett Lachance (Ohio) and Miguel Lebron (New York) have been reduced to just 5-games, and they may rejoin their teams as of tomorrow.

The decision was made after an appeal by the Oxen manager. Also factoring in is the fact that both teams are in pennant races and the length of the original suspension would have had a detrimental impact to both clubs going into the final stretch of the regular season.

Lachance is hitting .349 this year since joining Ohio from Hamilton, with 7 homers and 24 RBIs. Lebron is 3-3 with a 5.40 ERA, 3 saves and 21 Ks in 21.2 innings in 2016.

Rowdy Players Suspended by League


Both benches got involved in a rowdy fracas during the Ohio-New York game at Oxen Ballpark, on an incident sparked by a brush-back pitch. The two main culprits have been suspended by the league. The Oxen Brett Lachance and the Minutemen Miguel Lebron were each issued 10-game suspensions for their unsportsmanlike behavior and aggressive actions.

This year Lachance is batting .288 with 55 hits and 11 home runs. He has scored 27 times and has batted in 36 runs.

Crunching the numbers on Lebron for the year, he has made 18 relief appearances, recorded 3 saves and compiled a 3-3 won-lost mark and 5.40 ERA. In pitching 21.2 innings, he has totaled 21 strikeouts and 18 walks.

New York was also involved in a bench-clearing fracas during yesterday’s game against Kingston.
