Blue Jays Center Fielder Kevin Pillar Suspended For Yelling ‘Fag’ at Braves Pitcher: VIDEO
Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar has been suspended for two games after yelling an anti-gay slur at Braves pitcher Jason Motte.
Following his suspension, Pillar apologized, saying he was “completely and utterly embarrassed” by his actions during the Wednesday night fixture. He added:
“I regret saying it. I’m going to use myself as an example of how there are words out there you can’t use. It’s not a word I use ever.
“[I] helped extend the use of a word that has no place in baseball, in sports or anywhere in society today. I’m completely and utterly embarrassed and feel horrible to have put the fans, my teammates and the Blue Jays organization in this position.”
