Crystal Goes Down Swinging

BREAKING NEWS: Leading off the bottom first inning for the New York Yankees, Designated Hitter Billy Crystal struck out swinging against Pirates SP Pat Maholm on a 3-2 pitch.

Before going down on strikes, the lovable actor/comedian fouled a pitch down the first base line, which will go down in history as his claim to fame along with City Slickers and his unusually large forehead. The Yankees signed Crystal today to a 1-day contract to honor the long-time fan the day before his 60th birthday. Crystal received a standing ovation from the crowd at Legends Field that included fellow actor, friend and cocaine addict Robin Williams.
