Colin Cowherd Clarifies His Comments About Dominican Baseball Players


Colin Cowherd has recently come under fire for his statements about Dominican baseball players.

After the ESPN radio host made an issue about the sport not being too complex and that a third of the league is Dominican, Jose Bautisa demanded an explanation. Cowherd has finally responded.


"I could've made the point without using one country, and there's a sorts of smart people from the Dominican Republic. I could've said a third of baseball's talent is being furnished from countries with economic hardships, therefore educational hurdles. For the record, I used the Dominican Republic because they've furnished baseball with so many great players. I understand that when you mention a specific country, they get offended... Was I clunky? Perhaps. Did people not like my tone? I get it. Sometimes my tone stinks."

That's as much of an apology as one is going to get out of Cowherd.
