The Los Angeles Dodgers received some criticism from their fans after Julio Urias was edited out of his final World Series video after the pitcher was arrested for domestic violence. Urias, the 2020 World Series-winning third baseman, was arrested for assault for the second time since 2019 after the franchise then gave him a second chance.
Although he wasn’t charged four years ago, MLB suspended him for 20 games for violating its domestic violence policy, and now he’s been arrested again, this time on Sunday, September 3, on suspicion of aggravated domestic violence.

The Dodgers then took another step. On Thursday, September 14, it was announced that the franchise cleared the player’s locker and plans to move on. The move has encouraged his fans, who believe that despite his transgressions, he is still a part of Dodgers history and cannot simply be hidden away.
“I’m all for removing someone like Uria from all future Dodgers stuff and stuff, but the WC was in the past and a very important moment,” one user wrote on Twitter. “Maybe it’s an obvious touchy subject now, but finally get rid of those things. It affected other men too!”
