Right after striking out in the seventh inning of a game on Wednesday, Blue Jays’ Kevin Pillar lost his temper and called Atlanta Braves pitcher Jason Mott a “fag.”
He’s already apologized for the gaffe, which occurred during the seventh inning.
“It was immature,” he says. “It was stupid. It was uncalled for.”
“It’s part of the game. It’s…I’m a competitive guy. You know, heat of the moment. Obviously I’m going to do whatever I need to do to reach out and apologize. He didn’t do anything wrong. It was on me.”
