Yankees End Worker's Attempt To Jinx New Stadium, Consider Lawsuit

NEW YORK (AP) -- So much for the curse. The New York Yankees have ended a construction worker's attempt to jinx their new stadium with a buried Boston Red Sox jersey.

Team officials watched Sunday as construction workers removed the jersey, with slugger David Ortiz's name on it, from 2 feet of concrete in a service corridor of the stadium that's under construction.

The team says a construction worker - who is a Red Sox fan - recently buried the jersey there while on the job. Two other supervisors found the tattered shirt Saturday.

The Yankees plan to donate the jersey to charity, and may pursue a lawsuit against the construction worker.

    They had to stop construction and dig a hole... he should have to pay for that cost he caused while in the process of trying to terrorize America's New Cathedral of Baseball

    Forget suing the bum... Maybe the Yankees should look at what is in the foundation of other stadiums in New York and go that route Cough (Jimmy Hoffa) Cough (Giants Stadium) Cough (under the endzone)
