Red Sox Sex Abuse Scandal Returns to Public Spotlight

Red Sox Sex Abuse Scandal Returns to Public Spotlight. Two former clubhouse attendants have filed for $5 million each from the Red Sox as recompense for the abuse allegedly endured at the hands of Sox clubhouse manager Donald Fitzpatrick in the early 90’s. This is not the first time such charges have been made against Fitzpatrick (now deceased) — the two men are actually the ninth and tenth attendants to come forward with allegations — but it is the first time that the manager is said to have assaulted boys in the team’s clubhouse itself. “I’ve held one of Boston’s darkest secrets all these years, knowing people would have been blown out of their seats if they knew what the Red Sox let happen to me,” Crawford told the Globe.
