Coming on the heels of yet another witness coming forward to complain about Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell's behavior before a Braves/Giants game on April 23rd, Major League Baseball suspended McDowell for two weeks without pay.
McDowell got into an exchange with Giants fans when some heckled Braves backup catcher David Ross. According to reports, McDowell made obscene gestures with a bat, shouted profanities, and threatened a fan who told him that he should watch what he says in front of kids. After the Braves placed him on administrative leave, it was expected that MLB would take additional action.
McDowell has been the pitching coach for the Braves since the 2006 season, taking over for rocking icon Leo Mazzone.
