Sports Minute: Manfred: No tolerance for beanballs in wake of Astros' scam
By MARK DIDTLER
NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) - Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred says he won't tolerate any pitchers throwing at Houston hitters in the wake of the Astros' sign-stealing scam. Manfred says he's personally delivered that message to several big league managers. Baseball has been inflamed by the Astros' scandal and several top stars have been making threats, accusations and barbs. Manfred says the back and forth is hurting the game. Manfred was at spring training in Florida on Sunday for a previously scheduled news conference involving teams. The main topic quickly focused on the sign-stealing scam.
