Manny Ramirez Apologizes for Shoving Sox Official

Manny Ramirez apologized in private to a Red Sox travel secretary after an altercation Saturday in Houston. Manny allegedly approached the secretary, Jack McCormick, looking for 16 tickets personally for the game that day. McCormick told him that he may not be able to accomodate him.

Manny’s response?

“Just do your job!”

Things escalated from there, and it ended with Manny shoving McCormick, allegedly around 60 years old, to the ground. Both men had to be separated by teammates and other officials in the clubhouse.

McCormick accepted Manny’s apology in private.

When asked on Sunday about it, Manny replied:

“It’s in the past. It’s a new day.”

Remember…this all comes after Manny and Kevin Youkilis got into a scuffle in the clubhouse. Personally, I don’t think the incidents are related, but Manny has been more aggressive as of late, which contrasts his personality.

There was no word whether McCormick was able to fulfill Manny’s request (I would assume not…).
