Fresno Grizzlies apologize for featuring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as one of America's enemies in video

FRESNO, California -- Many baseball fans are taking to social media after a Memorial Day tribute video played during the Fresno Grizzlies double-header Monday.

The video featured the voice of late President Ronald Reagan and as he spoke about America's adversaries, a photo of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared in between images of Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and late Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

The Fresno Grizzlies have issued an apology for the video, and the way it was edited.

They tweeted a statement explaining that the video was pre-produced from outside of their front office.




The Grizzlies were the Houston Astros' Triple-A affiliate from 2015-2018.

Last September, the Washington Nationals agreed to become the team's Major League Affiliate for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
