Color commentator F.P. Santangelo, a former major-league infielder, has been pulled from Washington Nationals broadcasts following allegations of inappropriate behavior that included sexual misconduct, multiple outlets reported.
Santangelo has been on and off the air since April 30 and was not part of the team that called the Nationals’ 4-3 loss to the New York Yankees in extra innings on Saturday.
Allegations from an anonymous woman were posted on social media recently. The same woman, who is 31, also told The Athletic that Santangelo, 53, made an “unwanted advance” many years ago and she repeatedly told him to stop. She alleged he sexually assaulted her.
