The TVs, which show the dugout who is warming up in each bullpen, didn’t survive the assault.
“I kind of wish I did that without cameras being on me,” Porcello said, via ESPN. “I apologize to everyone that had to see that. It’s not a behavior that I feel like is representative to me and my personality. The frustration got the best of me.”MORE NEWS: 'I Don't Want To Be A Vigilante': Mikayla Miller's Mother Demands Justice At Hopkinton Rally
