It appears that he was trying to snatch a cell phone out of her hands, TMZ says. After the struggle, Baer walks away with the phone in his hand telling his wife, “Stop Pam. Stop.”
Baer’s wife told the media outlet, “We were having a family fight about someone in my family and that’s it’s.”
The couple issued a joint statement that read: “Regrettably today we had a heated argument in public over a family matter. We are deeply embarrassed by the situation and have resolved the issue.”
The Major League Baseball Association released the following statement regarding the incident: “Major League Baseball is aware of the incident and, just like any other situation like this, will immediately begin to gather the facts. We will have no further comment until this process is completed.”
Baer issued his own statement Friday evening saying: “I am truly sorry for the pain that I have brought to my wife, children and to the organization. It is not reflective of the kind of a person that I aspire to be, but it happened and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I never behave in such an inappropriate manner again.
Pam released a statement through her attorney that read: “I would like to clarify the events of today, My husband and I had an argument in public about which we are quite embarrassed. I took his cellphone. He wanted it back and I did not want to give it back. I started to get up and the chair I was sitting in began to tip. Due to an injury, I sustained in my foot three days ago, I lost my balance. I did not sustain any injury based on what happened today. Larry and I always have been and still are happily married.”
