Nine more men have come forward alleging they were sexually abused by now-dead former Boston Red Sox clubhouse manager Donald Fitzpatrick. According to attorney Michael Garabedian, that now makes 11 victims claiming incidents of abuse spanning from the 1960s through the early 1990s. Ten of the men worked as clubhouse attendants: eight with the Red Sox and two with the Baltimore Orioles.
"I wouldn't be surprised if there were hundreds of victims of Donald Fitzpatrick out there," Garabedian said. "Pedophiles don't stop until they're caught, or until they pass away. They just do not stop and he had a 30-year reign."
Garabedian is seeking $5 million for each alleged victim from the organizations where they worked. He is also considering asking the state attorney general to conduct an investigation, and has asked the Red Sox to release any information they have on Fitzpatrick. The club re-issued their statement from December when allegations first surfaced.
"The club is unaware of any specifics regarding the matters brought forward recently by these individuals but, given the sensitive nature of the matter, will not have further comment," the statement read.
