NEW YORK (WFAN) — Hispanics Across America president Fernando Mateo joined WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” program on Thursday to put the Yankees and Major League Baseball on blast for what he calls an “injustice” against Alex Rodriguez.
HAA has been protesting outside MLB’s offices on Park Avenue in Manhattan since Monday, when A-Rod began appealing his 211-game suspension related to baseball’s latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal in front of arbitrator Fredric Horowitz.
Mateo went on the attack against the league, the Yankees and team president Randy Levine. And at times he even got testy with radio co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton.
“A-Rod deserves to be punished, but he does not deserve to be crucified,” Mateo said Thursday on WFAN. “That’s all we’re saying.”
