Video: Gloria Allred goes to bat against gay slurs by Atlanta Braves pitching coach and vividly descriptive homophobe Roger McDowell
Then the father of a nearby family of four chastised McDowell, protesting that there were children witnessing McDowell's vulgarity, to which McDowell, according to the father said "Kids don't f**king belong at the baseball park" ... and then approached him with a baseball bat, saying, "How much are your teeth worth?"
Mega-attorney Gloria Allred announced the allegations moments ago in a news conference -- representing a family of four (including two 9-year-old girls) who claim they watched McDowell make the homophobic remark and then use a baseball bat to simulate gay sex.
McDowell subsequently released a blame-the-victims apology: “I am deeply sorry that I responded to the heckling fans in San Francisco on Saturday. I apologize to everyone for my actions. “
A rep for the Braves released an additional statement, saying, “We are concerned by these allegations and the behavior described by a witness today. This in no way represents the Braves organization and the conduct we expect of our employees.”
