30 Apr
Not in Hall of Fame

Roberto Alomar has been placed on Major League Baseball’s ineligible list following an investigation of a sexual misconduct incident in 2014. 

Alomar, who had been working as a consultant with MLB and was also a special assistant with the Toronto Blue Jays was immediately terminated from both roles.   The Jays, whom he won two World Series Titles with, announced that they will sever all ties with their former Second Baseman.  This includes removing a banner that honors his retired #12, and also his name from their ring of honor.  

The Baseball Hall of Fame, who inducted Alomar in 2011, will not be removing him.   He also will not be expelled by the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, but they did state that they would not be inviting him to future events, nor will they do any work with his foundation.

Alomar played 17 seasons in a career spent with San Diego, Toronto, Baltimore, Cleveland, New York (NL), Chicago (AL) and Arizona.
