Pic of the Week

Oakland outfielder Billy Burns had company in
centerfield last week.
This photo reminds me of the day in 1983 when Dave Winfield, playing centerfield for the Yankees in Toronto (pre-Skydome), hit a seagull with a throw during between-innings warmups and killed the bird. Winfield was arrested after the game for cruelty to animals or some such charge, which was later dropped.

Yankees manager Billy Martin: "First time he's hit the cutoff man all year."
