AROUND THE WEB:

— Major League Baseball has created an Anti-Hazing and Anti-Bullying Policy that bans the baseball tradition of hazing rookies by dressing them up as women and making them wear offensive costumes.

The Associated Press reported this change in policy Monday night. The new policy forbids “requiring, coercing or encouraging” players from “dressing up as women or wearing costumes that may be offensive to individuals based on their race, sex, nationality, age, sexual orientation, gender identify or other characteristic.”

Forcing players “to consume alcoholic beverages or any other kind of drug, or requiring the ingestion of an undesirable or unwanted substance (food, drink, concoction)” is also prohibited under the new bargaining agreement.

So this is no longer allowed:

— Former Jets running back Joe McKnight was laid to rest on Monday in New Orleans and several of his former teammates attended the funeral and even served as pallbearers.

Antonio Cromartie, Bart Scott, Sione Po’uha, Willie Colon and D’Brickashaw Ferguson were in attendance and carried McKnight’s casket along with former USC running back LenDale White.

Former Jets Mark Sanchez and Demario Davis also attended the funeral.

“There’s a brotherhood and a camaraderie that we shared,” Sanchez said. “And so it’s tough to lose someone like that. So we just wanted to show our support.”

McKnight was shot and killed during a road rage incident in Terrytown, Louisiana on Dec. 1.

“You think about teammates and what that means. It’s an extension of family. You become family,” Scott said. “You’re here to support him as an extension of his family. Support for his son, who’s gonna need guidance and memories and stories of the type of man that his father was.”

McKnight played for USC before being drafted by the Jets in 2010. He played for New York until he was released before the 2013 season. He signed with the Chiefs in 2014 before injuries ended his NFL career that season.

— Rapper and former Nets part-owner Jay-Z introduced LeBron James at the 2016 Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year awards show and couldn’t resist taking a shot at Phil Jackson’s “posse” comment about James.

“He’s a dedicated family man who married his high school sweetheart, Savannah. Has three lovely children. The son who honors and worships his mother, Gloria. The friend who put his ‘posse’ in position,” Jay Z said.

Based on James’ reaction, it seems he didn’t like that reference too much.

 

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I had it. I had it. Sometimes there’s one slice of pizza left and there’s two hands to reach into the box. I’m always going to get the last slice.” — Martellus Bennett, on his 19-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter of the Patriots 35-31 win over the Ravens Monday night

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Ferguson Jenkins (74), Steve Farr (60)
