By now, you may have heard about Jeter and the Banker in the box seats.
In the eighth inning, Jeter continued the argument. “I couldn’t hear his exact words, but the fan was conciliatory and Jeter would have none of it,” Ellenthal said.
A cop walked over to Jeter, and they conferred. Jeter pointed at the banker and made an “out” sign with his thumb.
This is the strange part of the story for me. If you would have told me that Jeter had the guy thumbed in the 6th or 7th inning, maybe I could buy the whole thing. But, the 8th? I have no idea of what Derek’s IQ is, but, I would have to think that he’s smart enough to know that having a guy tossed in the 8th, when you’re losing by 4, is silly. There’s no point. Therefore, that’s why I doubt that he did ask for him to be removed.
