Giants CEO Larry Baer taking leave of absence in wake of domestic incident
Major League Baseball is investigating a video that showed Larry Baer involved in a physical altercation with his wife in public last week, and the San Francisco Giants CEO is taking a leave of absence in the meantime.
The team announced the decision on Monday, noting that Baer has “acknowledged that his behavior was unacceptable, apologized to the organization and is taking steps to make sure that this never happens again.”

The footage, which was captured by TMZ, showed Baer aggressively grabbing something out of his wife Pam’s hand at a public park in San Francisco. Pam Baer could be heard screaming before going to the ground.
Police were not called during the incident, and the person who recorded the video said he helped break things up. Even if no charges are filed, it seems likely that Baer will be facing disciplinary action from MLB.
