Mike Schmidt came under fire for two comments he made during a Philadelphia Phillies broadcast on Sunday. (Reuters) Baseball Hall of Famer and broadcaster Mike Schmidt came under fire from some fans Sunday after an attempted joke was deemed inappropriate and sexist. The Philadelphia Phillies TV broadcaster made two cringeworthy comments about his wife and the #MeToo movement, according to the New York Daily News. “I’ve got a dishwasher at home myself: my wife,” Schmidt said. “That was bad, huh?” Schmidt attempted to clarify his comment, but ended up throwing in a dig at the #MeToo movement. “Actually, I do the dishes most of the time ... You’re staring at me,” Schmidt said. “’Me Too’ movement, where does that fit in?” Many social media users immediately took to Twitter to criticize Schmidt's remarks. “Mike Schmidt is a clown and an embarrassment,” one user wrote. “Get … [Read more...] about Hall of Fame baseball player Mike Schmidt under fire for inappropriate ‘Me Too’ remarks during game

Look, I am sincerely happy for Mitch Richmond. And please don’t pelt me with any of his bobblehead dolls for saying what I am about to say. However, when Richmond’s selection to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame was announced Monday . . . well, it was another illustration of why the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is not in the same class as the other halls of fame in the major sports. Richmond was an excellent basketball player. I’m not feeling that he was a Hall of Famer.

(AP) NEW YORK - Hall of Fame baseball player Eddie Murray has agreed to pay $358,151 to settle civil charges of profiting in stock trades by using confidential information passed to him by a former teammate. The Securities and Exchange Commission is also announcing related charges against James Mazzo, former CEO of Advanced Medical Optics, and businessman David Parker. The SEC says Mazzo provided illegal tips about a planned acquisition of Advanced Medical Optics by Abbott Laboratories in January 2009. Mazzo passed the information to Doug DeCinces, who tipped off Murray and Parker, the SEC alleges in a civil lawsuit. DeCinces settled the SEC's charges a year ago by agreeing to pay $2.5 million.
