MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Apologizes For World Series Trophy Comments

Rob Manfred has not had the greatest few weeks.

Major League Baseball’s commissioner has been roasted by players across the league for his handling of the Houston Astros’ sign-stealing debacle, but Wednesday’s criticism was for a different reason.

Manfred recently referred to the World Series trophy as just a “piece of metal,” and Los Angeles Dodgers’ third basemen Justin Turner is just one player that had a scathing response to the remarks.

The commissioner apologized for his comments, saying, “There is no excuse for it. I made a mistake.”
