A former Boston Red Sox clubhouse manager, Donald Fitzpatrick, now deceased, is again the subject of Massachusetts sex crimes allegations, this time involving two former Boston Red Sox clubhouse attendants, who claim they were sexually assaulted by him in the early 1990’s.
One of the victims alleges he was sexually assaulted in 1991 in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse restroom; the other victim alleges he was assaulted by Fitzpatrick when he was employed by the team as a clubhouse attendant.
Although Fitzpatrick passed away in 2005, the victims are still seeking compensation from the Boston Red Sox organization because he was employed by the team and the alleged assaults occurred on the team’s property.
It has also been reported that 8 former clubhouse attendants had previously accused Fitzpatrick of sexual abuse. The Red Sox settled a lawsuit in 2003 with 7 men who alleged that they were molested during spring training sessions in the 1970’s. In that case, the Boston Red Sox settled for $3.15 million. Additionally, in 2002, Fitzpatrick reportedly pled guilty to Sex Crimes Charges.
