Nelson, Garcia sued by Fenway groundskeeper

Postby WebHamster » Wed Feb 25, 2004 1:00 pm

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Former New York Yankees relief pitcher Jeff Nelson and outfielder Karim Garcia are being sued by a Fenway Park groundskeeper for an incident that took place during the American League Championship Series.

The Fenway employee, Paul Williams, Jr., is suing the two players for lost wages and medical bills.

In the middle of the ninth inning of Game 3 of the ALCS, Williams apparently got into a shoving match with Nelson in the Yankee bullpen. Garcia, who was warming up in right field, jumped over the bullpen fence to join the melee.

Williams acknowledged openly rooting for the Red Sox, waving a white rally towel and pumping his fist in the ninth inning after Boston turned a double play.

Nelson has claimed it was Williams who provoked the fight after the pitcher politely asked him not to cheer for the Sox.

New York won the game, 4-3, and the series in seven games before losing to Florida in the World Series.

I wouldn't say that. None of us know the true story, so it's hard to tell what's what. It's a he-said-she-said fight, and it may never be resolved fully in our minds.

Has anything come of this? I'm curious to see how it all ends up.
