Baseball player Danry Vasquez is now engaged to the girlfriend he beat viscously in a stadium stairwell.

People have been shocked by footage of the 24-year-old outfielder striking his girlfriend multiple times across the face in 2016.

The horrifying footage was released by Corpus Christi Police Department and quickly went viral.

The couple have been dating since they were teenagers and have reportedly been engaged since November 2017.

Sources have told TMZ Sports how the pair are now describing themselves as a ‘happy couple.’

Vasquez’s girlfriend reportedly stuck by her partners side following the brutal attack, pleading with prosecutors not to press charges for what she has claimed was an isolated incident.

Vasquez’s attorney has made the following remarks to TMZ Sports:

I recall conversations about the extreme stress he was under and the pressures to perform that he was young.

Came to USA at a young age with no parents [accommodating him] and no guidance … just his dreams.

She never excused his behaviour just loved him enough to believe they could move forward.

Vasquez was arrested on charged of domestic violence back in August 2016. However, despite video evidence, he avoided any serious punishment.

Nueces County District Attorney, and prosecutor in the case, Mark Gonzalez, advised the girlfriend refused to cooperate with prosecutors; preferring the case be dropped.

This lack of cooperation created difficulties for prosecutors. For his penalty, Vasquez to was required to undertake anger management courses; a punishment many believe to be inadequate.

Vasquez has reportedly now completed the terms of his probation, with the case being formally dismissed as of March 6.

Gonzalez told KRIS TV:

At that point, probation checked with us, and he had done everything we asked him to do so I was forced to dismiss the case.

It was an assault that occurred, we had all the evidence to prove it we just allowed this individual to hopefully get the training and education so he wouldn’t continue to assault people who he has relationships with.

Gonzalez added:

Yes I’ve seen the video, that’s what happens in domestic violence cases. Every time a man or woman hurts each other that’s what it looks like, and it’s ugly and what I’m trying to accomplish is to stop that from happening…

I’m hoping Mr. Vasquez will be the poster boy for our program and never hurt somebody that he’s in a relationship with and only time will tell.

Following the public outcry over the despicable footage, Vasquez’s former team, the Lancaster Barnstormers, have sacked him.

Lancaster Barnstormers manager Ross Peeples said:

There is no choice but to sever the relationship. Neither I, nor the Barnstormers’ organization as a whole, can condone or associate with that behaviour.

According to Fox, General Manager Mike Reynolds said:

Half of our front office staff are females, many of us are married with wives…I have two young daughters.

That is just not something that we will accept, that we will tolerate, that we want part of either the Barnstormers organization or the Lancaster County community
