Yanks reportedly bothered by Troopers mid-game

BALTIMORE -- The Yankees were reportedly bothered by two Maryland State Troopers who asked for autographs in the dugout during Sunday's 7-2 win over the Orioles in Game 1 of the American League Division Series.

The New York Post reported that Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter were approached by the troopers during the top of the ninth inning, and the newspaper quoted a source who said Swisher "was livid" at the in-game request.

Manager Joe Girardi did not witness the incident, but pointed out the obvious in saying, "That shouldn't happen."

"It shows you maybe some of the caliber of our players and what they've done over the years," Girardi added, with a laugh.
