Commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr. announced today that Roberto Alomar has been terminated as a consultant to Major League Baseball and placed on the Ineligible List.
Commissioner Manfred issued the following statement regarding the discipline: “At my office’s request, an independent investigation was conducted by an external legal firm to review an allegation of sexual misconduct reported by a baseball industry employee earlier this year involving Mr. Alomar in 2014. Having reviewed all of the available evidence from the now completed investigation, I have concluded that Mr. Alomar violated MLB’s policies, and that termination of his consultant contract and placement on MLB’s Ineligible List are warranted.
“We are grateful for the courage of the individual who came forward. MLB will continue to strive to create environments in which people feel comfortable speaking up without fear of recrimination, retaliation, or exclusion.”
In order to respect the privacy of the individual who came forward and to protect their confidentiality, MLB will provide no further details on this matter.
