Fox fires Lyons for remarks

15 October 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Fox Sports fired baseball analyst Steve Lyons, hours after he made ethnically inappropriate comments on the air during the Detroit Tigers-Oakland A's championship game Friday. Lyons is a former baseball player who has been working for Fox Sports since 1996. He also is an analyst for the Los Angeles Dodgers broadcasts. Lyons ran afoul of Fox Sports for comments he made during the game after analyst and former manager Lou Piniella said expecting a player to repeat his performance was like "finding a wallet on a Friday night and looking for one on Sunday and Monday, too." A little while later, Piniella said Oakland A's infielder Marco Scutaro was "en fuego," to which Lyons responded: "Lou's hablaing some espanol there, and I'm still looking for my wallet. I don't understand him, and I don't want to sit close to him now." »
