Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell returned from his two-week suspension yesterday, a punishment he received from Major League baseball for anti-gay slurs and gestures he made to fans at a baseball game in April.
McDowell has apologized for his remarks but did so again yesterday, this time in front of reporters.
Yesterday's apology in part:
“These past two weeks have been very humbling, emotional, and a reflective time for me and my family to better understand about what has happened. I have and will continue to learn from this and have committed to being a productive member of the Atlanta Braves organization and to this coaching staff. in addition, I would like to apologize to anyone who was offended by my actions. I am not proud of the way I acted and I know it will not happen again.”
