The Athletic has broken a story, where former New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway allegedly sent explicit messages to members of the media. The Athletic said that Callaway — who now is employed by the Los Angeles Angels — sent explicit messages to at least five women.
The report claims that the messages were “uninvited and sometimes unanswered.” The women felt uncomfortable by his advances.
Even in one instance, he allegedly put “his crotch near a reporter’s face.”
Five women spoke with The Athletic via anonymity. Callaway could face ramifications in the coming days from this story.
These women said that the incidents happened over a five-year time frame. He was reportedly with three teams during this time.
“Rather than rush to respond to these general allegations of which I have just been made aware, I look forward to an opportunity to provide more specific responses,” the 45-year-old Callaway wrote to The Athletic in response to an email, according to the outlet. “Any relationship in which I was engaged has been consensual, and my conduct was in no way intended to be disrespectful to any women involved. I am married and my wife has been made aware of these general allegations.”
Callaway was employed by the Cleveland Indians from 2013 through 2017. He spent two seasons leading the Mets.
He completed his first season as the Angels pitching coach in 2020.
“The behavior being reported violates the Angels organization’s values and policies,” Angels spokeswoman Marie Garvey said. “We take this very seriously and will conduct a full investigation with MLB.”
Former Mets GM Jared Porter lost his job after it was revealed that he sent explicit messages to a reporter. The Mets fired Porter less than 24 hours after his story came to light.
