Bret Boone is backtracking his sexual harassment comments.

The former Mariners second baseman on Wednesday apologized in a statement on Twitter following an exchange with a reporter in which he made light of sexual harassment.

"All, there are zero excuses for what I said earlier. None. It was 100% wrong," Boone wrote. "It was offensive. It was inappropriate. It was not remotely productive to any conversation regarding harassment. I apologize and it will never happen again."

Earlier Wednesday, Boone came under fire for the messages he sent to reporter Stephen Cohen, who shared screenshots of their conversation on Twitter.
