Late Red Sox clubhouse chief accused of '90s abuse


BOSTON (AP) -- Two more men are accusing a now-dead former Red Sox clubhouse manager of sexually abusing them.

Boston attorney Mitchell Garabedian says he has informed the Red Sox of the allegations and is asking for a $5 million settlement for each man.

The men were teenage clubhouse attendants in 1991 when they say Donald Fitzpatrick molested them in the clubhouse of Fenway Park. The statute of limitations has expired to file a lawsuit or seek criminal charges.

Fitzpatrick died in 2005. In 2003, the team settled a lawsuit with seven Florida men who said Fitzpatrick molested them during spring training beginning in the 1970s.

Garabedian said team lawyers have asked to meet with the two men. A message was left with Red Sox attorney Daniel Goldberg.

The allegations were first reported by The Boston Globe.
