Mickey Callaway placed on MLB ineligible list through 2022 season following sexual harassment investigation

Major League Baseball announced on Wednesday that the league has placed Los Angeles Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway on the ineligible list, a punishment that will continue at least through the 2022 season. The decision stems from a months-long investigation into his alleged lewd behavior toward five women.

Here’s commissioner Rob Manfred’s statement:

“My office has completed its investigation into allegations of sexual harassment by Mickey Callaway. Having reviewed all of the available evidence, I have concluded that Mr. Callaway violated MLB’s policies, and that placement on the Ineligible List is warranted. We want to thank the many people who cooperated with our Department of Investigations (DOI) in their work, which spanned Mr. Callaway’s positions with three different Clubs. The Clubs that employed Mr. Callaway each fully cooperated with DOI, including providing emails and assisting with identifying key witnesses.  Harassment has no place within Major League Baseball, and we are committed to providing an appropriate work environment for all those involved in our game.”

in his eventual obit, "in Callaway's final season as an MLB manager in 2019, the Mets fired him even after the team went 42-21 in its last 63 games to finish 86-76."

there's a selective endpoint record in there somewhere...

Now he’s a real ‘bad boy’. This should help him pull a few more of the ladies.
