Gotta love the New York Post: Fenway Punk was their cover headline, above a picture of a young and trim Pedro Martinez standing over – well, let’s let the Post describe the scene for you as Zimmer lumbered out of the Yankee dugout headed in poor helpless Pedro’s direction:
The lovable, roly-poly Zimmer headed directly for Martinez, awkwardly lunging for the hurler. Martinez sidestepped Zimmer,
grabbed him by the head with both hands and tossed him to the ground like a rag doll.
“I was just trying to dodge him and push him away, and too bad his body fell,” Martinez insisted afterwards.
Too bad indeed, Pedro.
