The former Mets manager is under fire after five women have come forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Five women have come forward to accuse Mickey Callaway, former Mets manager and current Angels pitching coach, of sexual misconduct. Brittany Ghiroli and Katie Strang of The Athletic were the first to report on this subject Monday night.

The women, all anonymous, work in sports media.

Behavior allegedly included the sending of unsolicited messages and inappropriate pictures, the requesting of naked photos, uncomfortable comments about their appearance, and the thrusting of his crotch area near a reporter’s face. Callaway also apparently told a female reporter that he would reveal information on the Mets if she got drunk with him.

The women claim this type of behavior has gone on for at least five years, which would encompass three teams and a number of cities. One reporter went on to tell The Athletic that his misconduct “was the worst-kept secret in sports.”

The Angels, who have employed Callaway since October 2019, are teaming up with MLB to investigate the matter.

Callaway took the time to initially address the allegations in a statement made to The Athletic.

“Rather than rush to respond to these general allegations of which I have just been made aware, I look forward to an opportunity to provide more specific responses,” he said. “Any relationship in which I was engaged has been consensual, and my conduct was in no way intended to be disrespectful to any women involved. I am married and my wife has been made aware of these general allegations.”

Callaway’s future in his current role with the Angels is unclear moving forward.
