The Washington Nationals have fired an employee for throwing two cups of hot coffee in the face of a woman in the Dominican Republic, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Kiley McDaniel, and Enrique Rojas.

Morel was the administrator of the Nationals’ baseball academy in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic, which has featured current Washington players such as Juan Soto and Victor Robles.

Nats president of baseball operations and general manager Mike Rizzo issued a statement to ESPN on Saturday, saying that the organization “learned of this horrific incident earlier today and immediately terminated the employee.”
