Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced Wednesday that Mickey Callaway has been placed on the Ineligible List after the Major League Baseball investigation was completed.
Commissioner Manfred issued the following remarks regarding the punishment: “My office has completed its investigation into the allegations of sexual harassment by Mickey Callaway. After reviewing all the available evidence, I have concluded that Mr. Callaway violated MLB regulations and that his inclusion on the Ineligible List is justified. We want to thank the many individuals who cooperated with our Department of Investigations (DOI) during its work, spanning Mr. Callaway’s positions with three different teams. The teams that employed Mr. Callaway fully cooperated with the DOI, including sharing emails and assisting with the identification of 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. “
Callaway has been placed on the Ineligible List immediately and will continue there until at least the end of the 2022 season, when he may be eligible to apply for potentially reinstatement.
The Los Angeles Angels issued the following statement:
“Effective immediately, we are ending Mickey Callaway’s employment with the Angels. We appreciate Major League Baseball’s diligent investigation and support their decision. ”
