Atlanta Braves Coach Roger McDowell Hurls Gay Slurs at Giants Fans

Ironically, McDowell and John Rocker are probably a secret couple.

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/nationa...UR31X2XaOAxDDM


Mets 1986 World Series hero Roger McDowell — the “second spitter” in a famed “Seinfeld” episode — before a recent game in San Francisco made anti-gay slurs and lewd motions with a bat at fans, then threatened a dad who had complained in front of his terrified twin daughters and wife, it was revealed today.

“He came toward me with a bat, and he was pointing at me and asking how much my teeth were worth,” said Justin Quinn, 33, about McDowell’s major-league meltdown during batting practice for last Saturday’s San Francisco Giants-Atlanta Braves game.

Quinn said the Braves pitching coach also barked, “Kids don’t f—ing belong at the baseball park” after Quinn pointed out that kids had heard McDowell saying to three male fans, “Are you three giving it to each other up the a—?”

McDowell apologized Wednesday over the allegations, the Atlanta Journal Constution reported.

In a statement Wednesday, McDowell said, "I am deeply sorry that I responded to the heckling fans in San Francisco on Saturday. I apologize to everyone for my actions."

In a statement, Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said, "Although I do not yet have all the facts regarding this incident, the allegations are very troubling to me."

Quinn and his lawyer Gloria Allred demanded that Major League Baseball fine McDowell and the Braves, and order him to undergo sensitivity training.

Quinn also reported the incident to San Francisco Police.

McDowell played in the majors from 1985 until 1996, breaking in with the Mets and staying with them until he was traded to the Phillies during the 1989 season.

I was thinking the same thing, did they really think that guy was gonna climb into the stands and beat them with a bat? Grow up. I want to know what they were saying to the coach before he lost his sh1t. It's ok to heckle the players, but if they respond then they're the bad guys? Come on.

Many people care. And while they might be "sensitive" in your opinion, they also have something the Braves and MLB want... money. It's not good business practice to piss off your customers.

i guess i was raised in a pretty liberal household where a few swear words didn't make anyone get crazy, even when I was young.

but, i think people are getting a little too sensitive on some things, that's all. just my opinion, not saying i'm right.

correct, and in this particular case, MLB is survive and thrive just fine without those offended in this instance. but i understand your point.

i also understand why MLB and the braves org need to respond swiftly, i just think as a society we're pretty sensitive about words now.

I honestly couldn't care less. But if that guy is impacting my bottom line, I have no problem ramming somethnig up his ass to make sure he doesn't do it again. The punishment would be ironic. Muhahaha.

very true; didn't the "victim" taunt the crap out of the manager though? Who knows what he said but it probably wasn't too nice... pretty un-classy thing to do in front of your own kids... nice role model... assuming that is what really happened
