Long Live the Bronx Zoo

“A-Hole vs Jeter” is a Joke.

If anyone understands turmoil, the genuine, old-school brand, it’s the ’70s-era Yankees, the champions of clubhouse friction. To hear Reggie Jackson, Graig Nettles and Goose Gossage tell it, today’s dramas barely would register on the Bronx Zoo scandal-meter.

When you consider just how whacked NYC was back then, that team made perfect sense, and the current crap?… is nuthin….

Not when you compare it to the one-punch knockout Reggie suffered at the hands of his third baseman. The Yankees had just beaten the A’s and were drinking heavily in an after-hours get-together. Nettles, who never cared for Reggie in those days, took exception to Jackson bringing too many people to
the party, one of whom had occupied Nettles’ seat.

Words were exchanged between the two Yankees, and a moment later Reggie was flattened. Although Jackson insists that, to this day, “I don’t really remember what happened” Nettles has a clear, concise recollection of the incident.

“Reggie brought some people who shouldn’t have been there and things got out of hand,” Nettles said.

How many punches were thrown?

“One,” Nettles said.

Did you connect?

“Oh, yeah.”

Did Reggie throw a counter-punch?

“Didn’t have time.”
