Major League Baseball has suspended Los Angeles Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway until the 2022 season ends on Wednesday.
The 46-year-old received the sanction after an investigation into allegations of abuse, abuse and sexual harassment from several women.
“After reviewing all available evidence, I concluded that Mr. Callaway had violated the policies of Major League Baseball,” said Commissioner Rob Manfred in a statement.
“Harassment has no place in baseball in the major league, and we are committed to offering a sacred work environment for everyone involved in our sport,” added the great manager.
Following the commissioner’s announcement, the angels fired Callaway. The California training had suspended the employee in February last year, when the allegations emerged.
According to the sports site The Athletic, Callaway is said to have sent unwanted photos to at least five women who all work in the media world. The acts committed are said to have spread over a period of five years, during the time he was employed by a total of three organizations. He worked as the Cleveland Indians gunners manager from 2013 to 2017. He then piloted the New York Mets in 2018 and 2019, before being hired by the Angels for the next campaign.
