A California man claims Atlanta pitching coach and ex-Mets reliever Roger McDowell made homophobic comments and crude sexual gestures toward fans and threatened him with a bat before the Braves played the San Francisco Giants on April 23.

Thirty-three-year-old Justin Quinn, of Fresno, made the allegations Wednesday during a press conference organized by prominent Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred. Quinn says he was attending the game with his wife and 9-year-old twin daughters at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Quinn alleges that when McDowell was told there were children present, McDowell replied that kids don't belong at a baseball park, picked up a bat, walked up to Quinn and asked him how much his teeth were worth.

Quinn says McDowell and the Braves should be fined and should issue an apology.
