The former pillow player and Hall of Fame member served as special counsel for both organizations. On Friday, the major leagues put their name on the list of people who were not qualified for a job in the circuit or one of its formations.
It came after Major League Baseball hired an outside law firm to investigate allegations of sexual harassment. A few months ago, a woman filed a complaint against the 53-year-old man for an inappropriate act that allegedly took place in 2014.
The Blue Jays have also indicated that he will be removed from the “Floor of Excellence” and that his banner will be taken down from the Rogers Center. For its part, the Hall of Fame will still retain plaque on Cooperstown, which was introduced there in 2011.
Alomar played 17 seasons in the major leagues, wearing the uniforms of the San Diego Padres (1988 to 1990), the Blue Jays (1991 to 1995), the Baltimore Orioles (1996 to 1998), the Cleveland Indians (1999 to 2001), the New York Mets (2002 -2003), Chicago White Sox (2003-2004) and Arizona Diamondbacks (2004). During his long period in the majors, he won 10 gold gloves and two World Series with the Jays.
