Arizona Diamondbacks television analyst Bob Brenly will take a voluntary leave of absence from Bally Sports Arizona while he takes sensitivity training following his comment earlier this week about Marcus Stroman.
"I want to apologize again for my insensitive reference on Wednesday, as it does not reflect my values or who I am," Brenly said.
"Beginning today, I have voluntarily decided to take some time off to listen, reflect and devote my attention to awareness training related to diversity and inclusion to enhance my understanding and appreciation of others. I plan to return to the booth next homestand, hopefully a better person."
Brenly made what he later called an "insensitive" comment during Tuesday's broadcast about the head covering worn by Stroman, who is Black and has been outspoken on issues concerning race and social justice.
