Three seat-side servers at Yankee Stadium are suing the park's concessionaire, Legends Hospitality, because they claim they are not getting a share of the 20 percent delivery charge listed on customer's bills. "They wonder where it's going if it's not going to you," server Evelyn Ryan said of customer's inquiries. Legends Hospitality is owned in part by the Yankees.
In another Yankee-related news item, George Steinbrenner assisted the FBI so that he could receive a pardon for his 1972 conviction for illegal campaign contributions, according to documents released Monday.

Before talking about his clutch 3-pointer that tied the game late in the fourth quarter and his defense on Paul Pierce at the end of regulation, LeBron James offered up an apology for using the word "retarded" to describe a question asked of Dwyane Wade following a Game 3 loss to the Celtics Saturday night. James was heard muttering "that's retarded" while Wade was being asked if he had any reaction to those who might think his play on Rajon Rondo was dirty.
"First of all, I want to apologize for using the 'R' word after Game 3. If I offended anyone, I sincerely apologize," said James, who scored 35 points and led the Heat to a 98-90 overtime win at TD Garden Monday night, pushing the Celtics to the brink of elimination Wednesday night in Miami.
Celtics forward Glen Davis acknowledged that his play has suffered against the Heat and in Game 4 he scored only four points on 1-for-4 shooting and no rebounds in 17 minutes. "I've been nowhere to be found throughout this whole series," Davis said after the Celtics lost 98-90 in overtime. "I need to find myself. Asked how he finds himself, Davis responded, "I don't know."
Pressed further, Davis said, "I have to find Glen and I don't know where Glen is at. I have no idea who is playing right now."

Carl Crawford apparently has a flair for the dramatic at Fenway.
The outfielder who entered this month mired in the worst slump of his career collected his second walkoff hit in a nine-game stretch, driving a double off the Wall in left-center to score pinch-runner Jose Iglesias from first and give the Red Sox a 2-1 victory over the Twins in 11 innings.
The Red Sox appeared poised to claim a tidy 1-0 victory, as Josh Beckett logged seven shutout innings and the Sox -- despite squandering most of their opportunities with runners in scoring position -- got a two-out RBI single to left from Adrian Gonzalez in the fifth inning.
But with Daniel Bard out, it was Alfredo Aceves who came on for the eighth inning. With one out, Aceves gave up a swinging bunt single to speedy outfielder Denard Span, then balked him to second. After an infield foul out, the Sox went to Jonathan Papelbon.
The Sox closer could not convert the four-out save....
LeBron James poured in 35 and Dwyane Wade added 28 as the Heat beat the Celtics, 98-90, in overtime in Game 4 Monday night at TD Garden. With a win in Game 5 Wednesday night in Miami, the Heat can eliminate the Celtics and advance to the Eastern Conference finals.
The Heat scored the first six points of overtime and the Celtics never got closer than three after that. One night after scoring 28 points and grabbing 18 rebounds, Kevin Garnett had a nightmare of a game, missing nine of his 10 shots and finishing with just seven points. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 27 while Ray Allen added 17.
The Celtics had a chance to win it in regulation but the Celtics botched the final play and had to settle for a Pierce fallaway over James that rimmed out at the buzzer. Wearing a protective and padded brace on his left elbow, Rajon Rondo started and played 39 minutes. He was generally effective, but was held to 10 points, five assists and two...
