Roger McDowell Placed On Administrative Leave

Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell has been placed on administrative leave while they investigate allegations he made homophobic comments and sexual gestures towards fans at AT&T Park in San Francisco last weekend.

General manager Frank Wren hopes to conclude the team’s investigation this weekend. Manager Fredi Gonzalez doesn’t think McDowell will lose his job as a result.

“In my opinion, it shouldn’t. It really shouldn’t,” Gonzalez said. “I’m sure there’s some hoops he’s going to go through, some apologizing, which he should have to go through. But for a person to lose their job, I wouldn’t think so. I hope it doesn’t.”
