Hall of Fame second baseman Roberto Alomar is not having a great day. The legendary player has been fired as a consultant by Major League Baseball and placed on the league’s ineligible list after an investigation into an allegation of sexual misconduct.
“Having reviewed all of the available evidence from the now completed investigation, I have concluded that Mr. Alomar violated MLB’s policies, and that termination of his consultant contract and placement on MLB’s ineligible list are warranted,” Manfred said.
News: MLB announced it has terminated its relationship with Roberto Alomar as a league consultant, and placed him on the Ineligible List.
This is in response to a review of "an allegation of sexual misconduct reported by a baseball industry employee" from an event in 2014.

Alomar said on Twitter that he was “disappointed, surprised, and upset” by MLB’s decision.
“With the current social climate, I understand why Major League Baseball has taken the position they have,” he wrote. “My hope is that this allegation can be heard in a venue that will allow me to address the accusation directly. I will continue to spend my time helping kids pursue their baseball dreams. I will not be making any further comment at this time.”
Alomar was inducted in 2011 and his status in the Hall will remain.
“His enshrinement reflects his eligibility and the perspective of the BBWAA voters at that time,” Chairman of the Board at the Hall of Fame said in a statement.
