Reggie Jackson reportedly banned indefinitely from Yankees for A-Rod comment

Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson has reportedly been banned indefinitely from the New York Yankees clubhouse and events due to a critical comment he made in a Sports Illustrated interview about Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez. Jackson, who is a special adviser for the Yankees, upset the organization when he spoke of A-Rod’s past use of performance-enhancing drugs (PED) while with the Texas Rangers. The 1977 MVP has been told by Yankee officials to stay away the team, but has not been fired. News One has the full story:

Since the New York Yankees are so pissed off at former baseball superstar Reggie Jackson aka Mr. October (pictured right) for his recent incendiary comment made in a Sports Illustrated interview about Alex “A-Rod” Rodriguez (pictured left),  they have reportedly banned him indefinitely from any of the clubhouse and team events, reports The Star-Ledger.

Jackson, who is a special adviser to the Yankees organization and earns a reported $700,000 for his role, recently put A-Rod, one of the team’s star players, on blast in the Sports Illustrated interview.  Jackson spoke to the magazine interviewer about A-Rod’s past use of performance-enhancing drugs (PED) while he was with the Texas Rangers from 2001 to 2003:

“Al’s a very good friend, but I think there are real questions about his numbers.  As much as I like him, what he admitted about his (performance-enhancing drug) usage does cloud some of his records.”
