Toronto Blue Jays hitting coach Brook Jacoby made the following statement regarding the April 29th incident with the umpiring crew following the game with the Boston Redsox…

  “Unfortunately, there was a verbal altercation with the umpiring crew following a tough loss in Boston.  Frustrations escalated, leading to an altercation in which I was wrongly accused of contacting an umpire in the runway following our game, I’m in no way going to apologize for what happened and feel that the penalties were very biased, harsh, and unfair.  I feel vindicated by the fact that everyone very near to the incident corroborated my actions when interviewed.  This is all I am going to say about this issue and I will not answer any questions concerning this incident from this point forward.  The game we play isn’t about the coaches or umpires, but about the players that play it.”
