The Boston Globe’s Gordon Edes confirmed with his sources within the Red Sox organization that Manny Ramirez was fined between $10,000 and $15,000 (though closer to $10k) for shoving the Red Sox traveling secretary instead of the six-figure estimate reported on the radio.
Everyone involved (Manny, the Red Sox, Scott Boras, and the MLBPA) signed off on the fine without filing a grievance and his money is reportedly going to charity.
As you may remember, this fine is related to an incident in late June in Houston when Manny shoved traveling secretary Jack McCormick to the ground after McCormick said he couldn’t fulfill a ridiculous ticket request (16 on the day of the game).
There’s still no word on whether McCormick was able to fulfill Manny’s ticket request.
