Larry Baer Altercation
On March 1, 2019, a TMZ video showed Baer dragging his wife Pam out of a chair and causing her to fall to the ground during a public altercation. According to witnesses, the two were in a loud argument and Baer tried to take a cell phone away from his wife. Two witnesses here at the scene said they intervened during the altercation and separated the two as the wife screamed for help.
Larry Baer told the San Francisco Chronicle in an interview, “My wife and I had an unfortunate public argument related to a family member and she had an injured foot and she fell off her chair in the course of the argument. The matter is resolved. It was a squabble over a cell phone. Obviously, it’s embarrassing.”
Later on Friday March 1, 2019, the pair issued a joint statement through the Giants: “Regrettably, today we had a heated argument in public over a family matter. We are deeply embarrassed by the situation and have resolved the issue.”
Later, the Giants sent a follow-up statement from Baer in which he apologized. The follow-up statement read: “I am truly sorry for the pain that I have brought to my wife, children, and to the organization. It is not reflective of the kind of person that I aspire to be, but it happened and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I never behave in such an inappropriate manner again.”
