Trevor Bauer apologizes for ‘childish, unprofessional’ behavior

Trevor Bauer

Trevor Bauer had an embarrassing outburst before he was removed from Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Royals, and the Cleveland Indians ace apologized for his actions immediately after the game.

Bauer, who angrily threw the ball over the center field wall when Terry Francona came out to pull him, admitted his frustrations got the best of him and there is “no place for it in the game.”

“I owe a sincere apology to all my teammates, my coaching staff, the organization, and all of our fans for how I conducted myself today,” Bauer said. “It was unbecoming, childish and unprofessional. There’s no place for it in the game. I’m happy it didn’t result in any physical injury for anybody else.”

Bauer also said he wanted to make it clear that his frustration was with himself, not any of his teammates or Francona. The Indians manager was visibly upset, and Bauer appeared to apologize to him immediately following the stunt.

Considering he had surrendered seven runs against a team he has dominated in the past, it’s easy to believe Bauer was angry with himself. Still, the way he acted was embarrassing and showed Francona up — whether intentional or not.

Bauer has been the subject of numerous trade rumors over the past several weeks, and one report claims teams that are interested in him may have been turned off by Sunday’s antics.
