Braves' McDowell back from suspension

BY foxsports • May 13, 2011

An emotional Roger McDowell has returned from his two-week suspension and is vowing he won't repeat the inappropriate comments and crude gestures he made to fans that led to his punishment by Major League Baseball.

McDowell's eyes were red as he apologized Friday ''to anyone who was offended by my actions.'' He struggled to remain composed while he talked about his return as the Braves' pitching coach.

The suspension came after Justin Quinn made McDowell's actions public. Quinn, who was attending the April 23 Braves-Giants game in San Francisco with his 9-year-old twin daughters, says he saw McDowell ask three men ''Are you guys a homo couple or a threesome?''

McDowell says he has apologized to Quinn's family and is in sensitivity training.
