High-profile attorney Gloria Allred is holding a press conference at 4 p.m. EDT today to discuss allegations that a Major League Baseball coach hurled gay slurs at a father who was attending a recent game with his children and even threatened the man with a baseball bat.
According to an Allred interview with TMZ.com, which will be live-streaming the press conference, the coach used “homophobic words and sexually suggestive vulgar behavior,” simulating sex between gay men. Allred says the comments and gestures were directed at 3 men whom the coach apparently thought were gay. One of the fans, who brought his 9-year-old twin girls to the game, protested to the coach … and according to Allred, the coach responded by saying, “Kids don’t f**king belong at the baseball park.” She also claims the coach then approached the father “with threatening words and a baseball bat.”
Allred will reportedly be joined at the press conference by the father and his twins. So, yeah, this should be interesting.
