"Women Don't Belong In The Dugout"

Why are there athletes and men in general who still feel this way? Get over it but he loves us gals, always has. Bravo to the Padres manager for speaking out.

SAN DIEGO -- New York Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez's comment that women "don't belong in the dugout" drew criticism Sunday from San Diego Padres manager Bruce Bochy, who supported the female member of his training staff and said he was surprised her gender even came up.

Hernandez made the remark during the second inning of New York's 8-1 victory in San Diego on Saturday night. Mike Piazza homered for the Padres and exchanged a high-five in the dugout with 33-year-old Kelly Calabrese, the Padres' massage therapist.

"Who is the girl in the dugout, with the long hair?" Hernandez said. "What's going on here? You have got to be kidding me. Only player personnel in the dugout."

Hernandez found out later in the broadcast that Calabrese was with the Padres training staff.

"I won't say that women belong in the kitchen, but they don't belong in the dugout," Hernandez said.

Hernandez, a former Mets first baseman and "Seinfeld" guest star, then laughed and said: "You know I am only teasing. I love you gals out there -- always have."


"Calabrese said she was flabbergasted by Hernandez's comments.

"It amazes me that somebody of that caliber that has obviously played the game before and is in front of an audience of millions of people would say something like that," she said of Hernandez. "It's a little shocking. But you know what -- it happens. He not only discredited me as a person, but he discredited women."

He should not be allowed in the dugout. He should also have to watch "A leauge of thier Own."

Well, his opinion certainly hasn't changed since his playing days.

I saw a news clip of it, he really sounded upset. I bet Keith doesn't mind the cute ballgirls or Hooters ballgirls-just stay the heck out of the dugout! Sexism is so attractive in a man

You should have heard his reaction when women reporters started coming into the lockerroom.

I don't think it's THAT big of a deal.....He didn't realize that she worked for the team.....and he apologized.

As a woman I think it's a big deal if someone displays a sexist attitude like that-the way he said it in the video I saw, you'd think he was outraged over it. The other announcer even said something like "I don't think you should be saying that". If he had some issues with female reporters too, well that indicates a pattern of sorts to me. I Googled it but couldn't find anything.

Sure it's one instance but there is still a boys club mentality amongst some athletes and other people in sports. The woman said she felt discredited and I agree that comments like that (which most guys then tend to apologize for and/or say they were joking) discredit women too. Think before you speak, or before you display your sexist leanings over the airwaves.

After all, how many years did it take for baseball to allow an African American in the dugout?

I definitely see your point. But Keith didn't think she was part of the team.....she could have been a wife of a player or a security guard, or a groundskeeper for all he knew.
