- For those that like the Yankees (or Tigers for that matter), the Yankees-Tigers tonight will be televised at Bryant Park, in what they are dubbing "Pinstripes in the Park". In addition to the game, former Yankees Goose Gossage and Graig Nettles will be on hand, there will be drawings for free airplane trips, and first 2000 fans will receive a free blanket. "Gates" open at 5:30 and the game starts at 7:05. Unfortunately, no alcohol allowed, but they will be selling "ballpark food".
- As we mentioned yesterday, Roger Clemens is re-joining the Houston Astros. Clemens and the Astros agreed to a $22,000,022 contract when the 43 year-old former Yankee makes the Astros roster. Assuming he joins the Astros in late June, the prorated contract would be worth about $12 million.
