Braves Coach Tossed Gay Slurs at Giants Fans

Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell allegedly used some pretty nasty language with fans in San Francisco before Saturday’s game. McDowell allegedly asked three Giants fans “Are you a homo couple or a threesome?” and “Are you three giving it to each other up the ass?” McDowell apparently didn’t use the f-slur that got Kobe Bryant fined $100,000 by the NBA, but he had more to say.

Oh, and he also allegedly made some sexual gestures. Then, another fan who was there with his wife and kids yelled at McDowell that there were kids present. McDowell allegedly responded with “Kids don’t f*cking belong at the ballpark.” And allegedly threatened the fan with a bat and asked if he valued his teeth. The fan has lawyered up and is asking that MLB fine McDowell, which seems more than appropriate.

Commissioner Bud Selig says he finds it all very troubling, but wants to wait for the Braves to conduct their own investigation. The Braves have said something like they don’t endorse McDowell’s behavior if he indeed behaved that way.

And McDowell, who was a pitcher for the 1986 Mets, has issued a generic apology without getting into any specifics and especially without mentioning homosexuality: “I am deeply sorry that I responded to the heckling fans in San Francisco on Saturday. I apologize to everyone for my actions.”
