SF Giants CEO Baer suspended without pay

San Francisco Giants chief executive Larry Baer has been suspended without pay until July 2 for a domestic incident involving his wife.

The incident was first reported by TMZ on March 1, and Baer has been on leave of absence since March 4.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred announced the suspension on Tuesday.

“At my direction, the Department of Investigations conducted an investigation into the March 1, 2019, video-recorded incident involving Larry Baer,” Manfred said in a news release.

“I also personally met with Mr. Baer. Based on my review of the results of the investigation, I have concluded that Mr. Baer’s conduct was unacceptable under MLB policies and warrants discipline.”
