McCarver will not be punished for on-air comments

Fox Sports will not discipline MLB analyst Tim McCarver for comments he made during the network’s telecast of Saturday’s Rays-Yankees game.

McCarver likened the Yankees’ understating the accomplishments of former manager Joe Torre with World War II-era totalitarian regimes removing images of certain generals.

Fox spokesman Dan Bell said in a statement that McCarver regrets making the comment.

"We’ve discussed the situation with Tim, and relayed in no uncertain terms that his choice of analogies was inappropriate, which he completely agrees with and regrets using," network spokesman Dan Bell said Monday in a statement. "Given his contrition and flawless 25-year track record, we’re comfortable no further action is necessary."
