I have been a fan of baseball since I was 2. While I wouldn’t speak for all fans I do speak for me. I am a forgiving person. Anger and grudges only hurt the person who holds them. I make a choice each day not to hold on the anger. I am ready to forgive you but your apology needs more.
So here is the apology that I want:
Dear Fans of baseball,
I am sorry, I was wrong. I made decisions that I will regret for the rest of my life. I am not asking for your forgiveness. I’m only asking for a chance to earn your respect. I have changed and I will never be that person again. I will do everything in my power to be the player you can be proud to cheer for.
You have served your suspension. Forgiveness can be had you just have to earn our respect.
