BOSTON — Nine more men have come forward to say they were abused by a now-dead former Boston Red Sox clubhouse manager.
The men, including two former Baltimore Orioles bat boys, are in addition to two former Red Sox clubhouse attendants who said in December they were abused by Donald Fitzpatrick, who died in 2005.
Lawyer Mitchell Garabedian said Monday the statute of limitations for legal action has expired, so the men are seeking $5 million settlements from the Red Sox or Orioles. He's exploring possible legal action in two cases.
Fitzpatrick pleaded guilty in Florida in 2002 to attempted sexual battery on a child under 12. The Red Sox settled a lawsuit with seven Florida men claiming Fitzpatrick molested them. He resigned from the Red Sox in 1991.
