(Newser) – Eight more men have claimed abuse by a Boston Red Sox clubhouse boss in what the Boston Globe is calling "the worst sexual abuse scandal in Major League Baseball history." The men—among them two former Baltimore Orioles batboys—join two ex-clubhouse attendants who recently filed a lawsuit against the Sox, saying they'd been sexually molested by Donald Fitzpatrick, now deceased. With the statute of limitations for legal action expired, each of the latest accusers wants $5 million in damages from the teams, the AP reports.
