Saturday was the 64th annual Old-Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium, but the story was A.J. Burnett. The streaky right-hander cut both hands in an act of frustration but covered it up by telling trainer Steve Donohue he slipped on the stairs. Burnett fessed up after the Yankees 10-5 loss to the Rays and said he will apologize to teammates today.

The Old-Timers’ Day celebration brought more stories about the complex life of George Steinbrenner. No player seemed more conflicted than Reggie Jackson, who said he’d have rather skipped the celebration. Also, Yogi Berra could not attend because of a fall at home on Friday.

Steinbrenner’s body was laid to rest on Saturday outside of Tampa, according to this AP story. It was one of two major losses the Yankees were forced to deal with this week, writes Sam Borden in this week’s Baseball Beat. Both Steinbrenner and Bob Sheppard left a lasting legacy within the organization.
