Video: Bobby Valentine Apologizes for Saying 'Fagged Out' During HR Derby

ESPN baseball commentator Bobby Valentine apologized for mispeaking during last night’s Home Run Derby, after Valentine — in trying to describe participants who swing at too many offerings too quickly — said they become “fagged out.”

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated asked Valentine to explain the statement, and he did via a released statement through ESPN PR, saying “I meant to say fatigued and it came out wrong. I’m truly sorry for my mistake.”

Seems like a logical explanation. No need to write a story that groups him with DeSean Jackson, Joakim Noah and Kobe Bryant.
