The Yankees had their first kangaroo court session of the year yesterday, with the Hon. Mariano Rivera presiding. It took about an hour for the players to get through the list of offenses which have been compiled over the first three months-plus of the season. Most of them are silly ways for teammates to write each other up, and many never see the light of day to the public.
When Tony Pena was interviewing for the Yankees’ managerial position last winter, we wrote several times that he won the 2003 American League Manager of the Year award while piloting the Kansas City Royals.
It didn’t help him beat out Joe Girardi, and apparently Pena has decided to part with it. eBay user blueshirts1199 brought it home with a winning bid of $200 (plus $15 shipping and handling).
The item was sold by a collectibles company up in Bourne, Mass. – Red Sox country. The description listed it as “one of a kind” and “heavy,” with a “few small nicks on the edges” but otherwise mint condition. Can’t wait to ask Tony about this in Spring Training.
