New York (AP) — Harold Reynolds was fired by ESPN from his job as a baseball analyst after he was accused of sexual harassment, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

The former Gold Glove-winning second baseman, a member of the “Baseball Tonight” team for 11 years, said he didn’t do anything to warrant his dismissal and wants his job back.

“It was a total misunderstanding,” Reynolds told the Post. “My goal is to sit down and get back. To be honest with you, I gave a woman a hug and I felt like it was misinterpreted.”

This scandal, combined with fellow Baseball Tonight analyst Peter Gammons recovering from an aneurysm, means one thing and one thing only for ESPN: John Kruk.
