Watch out for the mall cop

In previous springs, I’ve posted about the security at Steinbrenner Field. It’s harder to get in there than it would be to bust out of jail. I saw a woman put her feet up on the dugout roof today and I thought they were going to taser her.

Anyway, the head of the security army is this guy. He rides around on a Segway like Robert E. Lee on Traveler during the Battle of Gettysburg. He routinely — and I kid you not — zips around the warning track of the outfield when there is nobody on the field.

Some folks in the organization this year have dubbed him “Paul Blart: Mall Cop.”


Meanwhile, the son of Felix Lopez is a convicted steroids distributor. Lopez is George Steinbrenner’s son-in-law. That has not been a position with a lot of job security.
