Braves still investigating McDowell incident
ATLANTA (AP) - Braves general manager Frank Wren said Saturday the team is still gathering information on allegations that pitching coach Roger McDowell made homophobic comments and crude gestures toward fans before a game in San Francisco last weekend.
The Braves will forward results of their inquiry to commissioner Bud Selig.
“We are still working on it,” Wren said.
The team placed McDowell on administrative leave Friday, a day after he apologized in a statement.
The allegations against McDowell came from Justin Quinn, who said he was in the stands with his wife and 9-year-old twin daughters before the April 23 game at San Francisco when he noticed McDowell ask three men “Are you guys a homo couple or a threesome?”
Quinn said McDowell made crude sexual gestures with his hips and a bat. Quinn said he shouted, “Hey there are kids out here.” According to Quinn, McDowell said kids don’t belong at a baseball park, picked up a bat, walked up to Quinn and asked him, “How much are your teeth worth?”
