SAN DIEGO — The San Diego Padres today released the following statement from Padres President and CEO Mike Dee in response to the findings of Major League Baseball’s investigation.
"The Padres wish to thank Major League Baseball for its work this week, and are pleased that its findings confirm the facts that we discovered during our own internal investigation. As we have done this week, we will continue to work with San Diego’s LGBT community to strengthen and expand the club’s relationship with them.
Based on MLB’s findings, as well as the support of the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus, DJ Art Romero has accepted our invitation to continue to provide services for the team, in a role to be determined.
Finally, and most importantly, we appreciate the collaboration we have had this week with the LGBT community, and once again apologize for what took place during the performance of the National Anthem on Saturday night"
