Now, Larry has issued a new statement admitting his behavior was "unacceptable" --- and will take time away from the team.
The Giants board of directors issued a statement saying, "Mr. Baer has acknowledged that his behavior was unacceptable, apologized to the organization and is committed to taking steps to make sure that this never happens again."
"He has also requested, and the board has accepted, his request to take personal time away from the Giants beginning today. The Board has asked the Giants executive team to manage the day to day operations of the Club during this period, reporting directly to the Board."
The team says they are also "closely monitoring the matter" and still gathering information.
"Major League Baseball is taking the lead in gathering all facts surrounding the situation. The organization is cooperating fully with the process."
Baer has been involved with the Giants organization for decades. He was named chief operating officer in May 1996, team president in October 2008 and CEO on January 1, 2012.
He was also considered a key piece of San Francisco's efforts to recruit Bryce Harper.
