Red Sox Jersey Dug Up at Yankee Stadium

clipped from
With dust swirling around them, construction workers Frank Gramarossa and Rich Corrado used bright yellow jackhammers Sunday afternoon to extract a Red Sox jersey that another worker had buried at the site of the new Yankee Stadium. After breaking through about two-and-a-half feet of concrete, Gramarossa and Corrado pulled out a dusty, torn David Ortiz jersey.
Levine said the extracted shirt will be cleaned up and sent to Boston along with a Yankees Universe T-shirt. There, the Ortiz shirt will be auctioned to benefit the Jimmy Fund, the Red Sox primary charity that is affiliated with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Trost said the Yankees were speaking with the Bronx district attorney’s office about whether there was any criminality involved in the act, and the team would decide whether to file charges against the construction worker, identified by The Associated Press as Bronx resident Gino Castignoli.

“We take great pride in hiring Bronx residents,”
“He abused the privilege.”
