Latest MLB News

MLB executive, Bob Bowman was fired after accusations of misconduct. Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal was the one to report this story. Bowman walked away from his contract this past November and now allegations stemming from the past few decades have come to life.

Bowman made lewd comments towards his female coworkers and “engaged in a pattern of behavior that included propositioning female colleagues, allegedly having consensual relationships with subordinate co-workers.”

He also had physical and verbal altercations with his other colleagues. Given how long this has been happening, there must have been some amount of complicitness from the commissioners office. Bud Selig declined to comment on the situation. Good riddance to Bob Bowman from major league baseball.

Bowman led Major League Baseball’s multi-billion dollar digital media empire for 17 years.
