Mitch Williams won't be talking about baseball on TV for a while.
"Mitch Williams has decided to take a leave of absence from his role at MLB Network at this time," a representative for the network wrote. "We are continuing to look into the matter."
It might be a good idea if Williams also takes some time off from coaching youth baseball, at least if reports from a recent tournament are true.
On Friday, Deadspin.com posted reports of Williams being ejected from a game after a profanity-laced tirade, ordering one of his pitchers to hit an opposing batter and harassing coaches and players on the other team, including calling one boy a horrible, unprintable name.
Days before the story broke, Williams wrote on Twitter: "I regret what happened at this weekend’s tournament & apologize. I love baseball & coaching" and "I did not curse at the umpire & will walk away in the future. Again, I apologize."
