Former Philadelphia Phillies Pitcher Mitch Williams Wins $1.5 Million Lawsuit
Mitch Williams has been awarded $1.5 million in a wrong termination lawsuit after being fired by MLB Network for his alleged conduct at his 10-year-old son’s Little League game.
According to ESPN, Williams sued the network after it fired him from his analyst job in 2014, claiming he violated a morals clause. MLB Network said it respects the jury’s Tuesday decision but disagrees with its conclusions and is reviewing its legal options.
The website Deadspin reported Williams was kicked out of one game while coaching his 10-year-old son’s team after cursing and ordered a boy to hit an opposing player with a “beanball” in another game.
