Sadly, Mr. October can no longer be Mr. March for the Yankees this year. Major League Baseball, still in a tizzy about the continuing ticklefest between the Yankees and Rays, has ordered Reggie Jackson to take off the Yankees pinstripes for the remainder of this season’s spring training games and fined Jackson the grand sum of $250.
(Make love not war, Reggie)
Jackson claims to have only been wearing his Yankees windbreaker and cap when he stepped onto the field for the latest fracas, clearly confusing the uniform violation for jogging out during a flight just to show the old man’s still part of the team. The best part of his ‘explanation’, though? Don Zimmer did it, so I can, too.
