The Los Angeles Angels fired pitching coach Mickey Callaway after Major League Baseball announced he was being placed on the Ineligible List as a result of its investigation into sexual harassment allegations against him.
Callaway was previously suspended on Feb. 2 after multiple allegations were made public.
"Having reviewed all of the available evidence, I have concluded that Mr. Callaway violated MLB’s policies, and that placement on the Ineligible List is warranted," MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement, noting that the investigation spanned three of Callaway's employers through the years.
Investigators spoke to at least 50 people, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the details were not made public.
"The Clubs that employed Mr. Callaway each fully cooperated with DOI, including providing emails and assisting with identifying 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.”
