Young’s agent, Joel Wolfe, told FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal that Young completed his community service in Manhattan during the month of January. Young’s tasks included “sweeping leaves” and “picking up trash” around different parts of the city.
Young, who shouted an anti-Semitic slur at a man and then pushed him to the ground while intoxicated, also paid a visit to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. The hate crime charge will be vacated at his next court hearing on May 13 as long as he doesn’t get into any legal trouble between now and then.
“The entire experience changed his life,” Wolfe told Rosenthal on Thursday evening.
Young signed a one-year, $750,000 free agent contract with the Phillies this offseason. He underwent ankle surgery in November and is not expected to join Philadelphia’s starting lineup until late April or May.
