Maryland state troopers in Yankees dugout asked Jeter and Swisher for autographs during game

OK, this is a weird one.

George King of the New York Post reports that two Maryland state troopers assigned to the Yankees dugout for Game 1 of the ALDS last night asked Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher for autographs … during the game.

In the ninth inning, to be exact, although it’s unclear if the request was made before, after, or during the Yankees’ five-run outburst.

Jeter was asked afterward if he’d ever experienced something like that before and replied: “What do you think?”

And according to King’s unnamed source Swisher “was livid” about the whole thing. Pretty safe to assume they won’t be in the dugout for Game 2 tonight, although hopefully they’ll at least take the George Costanza “was that wrong?” route just in case.

Between state troopers asking him for autographs and missing Russell Martin‘s homer because he was in the bathroom, Jeter had an interesting night at Camden Yards.

    Right because being asked for an autograph is so distracting, get over it

    C’mon, These overpaid prima donnas are complaining that these two cops are what, breakin’ their ballplayer kharma by asking for a measly authograph? Yep, the officers should have waited until after the game; and I bet their sergeant is just thrilled at all the bad press they might be getting about now. But really, for Jeter and Swisher to be pissed is beyond me. Let’s see who asks for their autographs (especially Swisher’s) in a few years.

    Lol at some of you calling for a cop to be fired because he asked for an autograph who gives a shit I’d ask jester for his John Hancock, I’d just do it after the game

    Aww poor Jeter and Swisher……..maybe the cops should ignore you when you’re getting carjacked or your home broken into. It’s them and their willingness to uphold the laws of society that protect you from people taking what you have by force. Poor babies.
