Cities photographer makes assault claim against Twins' Miguel Sano

Miguel Sano Of Minnesota Twins Accused Of Assaulting Female Photographer

Major League Baseball said it is investigating allegations by a woman who worked as a photographer at Minnesota Twins events that she was sexually assaulted by third baseman Miguel Sano in 2015.

In the post, which was tweeted and posted to her Instagram account, Betsy Bissen states after an autograph signing at a store she was volunteering at, Sano grabbed her wrist and attempted to pull her into a back door.

On Twitter, Bissen detailed the assault charge.

Sano is listed at 6-foot-4, 260 pounds and Bissen said trying to fend him off left her, "sore all over from having to fight off this athlete that thought he was entitled to take advantage of me against my will".

"He then leaned down and tried to kiss me, more than once", she said. 'Every time he did, I said no and kept pulling back.

"I was in a squatted position with my wrist throbbing".

She said Sano "finally gave up" after 10 minutes "of fighting to pull me thru [sic] that door".

Sano, in a statement reported by TMZ Sports, said the alleged assault "never happened".

The Twins released a statement Thursday, saying the organization is aware of the allegations against Sano and take them "very seriously".

"Every time I have to hear about how great people think Miguel Sano is, I'm reminded of how terrible he actually is and how he hurt me", she concluded.

"We are aware of the allegations and are now in the process of looking into it", Major League Baseball spokesman Mike Teevan said in a statement posted on ESPN's website.

Bissen also shared the story of harassment from a Twins first base coach, whom she does not name - a man she states hit on her almost every game she attended.

The Minnesota Twins and Sano have been contacted for comment on the allegations. However, Bissen said on Twitter that, "The Twins knew nothing about what happened to me".

Bissen, who now works as a photographer for the St. Paul Saints, said that she did tell some who are close to her about the incident but was not ready to make it public until Thursday.

In a separate Twitter post, Bissen said, "I want nothing more than to feel free of this burden I've carried with me since 2015". This past season, he was selected to the American League All-Star team.

"I'm so sorry about this". There have been enough #metoo stories that illustrate why women wait to speak out'. "I understand why you didn't, but I wish you would have come to me", he tweeted.

Sano, 24, set career highs last season with 28 homers and 77 RBIs while making his first All-Star team.
