Lenny Dykstra to fight ‘Bagel Boss’ Chris Morgan in Atlantic City boxing match

The winding post-baseball tale of Lenny Dykstra has another strange new chapter.

The three-time All-Star and World Series champion is slated to fight “Bagel Boss” Chris Morgan in Atlantic City. The two will square off in a boxing ring at the Showboat Hotel on Sept. 7 in a deal announced Monday.

At the rate it’s going, within the next five years Lenny Dykstra will be fighting his fellow hobos for a can of baked beans under the pier.

Ron Darling: Lenny Dykstra made racist taunts to Red Sox in ‘86 World Series

Ron Darling has a story to tell about the 1986 World Series, and neither Boston Red Sox fans nor New York Mets fans will like it.

The former Mets pitcher recently published a new book titled, “108 Stitches: Loose Threads, Ripping Yarns, and the Darndest Characters from My Time in the Game,” that includes an ugly anecdote about teammate Lenny Dykstra’s actions during Game 3 of the ‘86 World Series between the Red Sox and Mets in Boston.

After taking the first two games of the series, the Red Sox started Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd in Game 3, and Dykstra led off in the top of the first inning. According to Darling, as Boyd was finishing his warmups, Dykstra yelled “ugliest piece of vitriol I’ve ever heard” in the pitcher’s direction.

Would that I could be surprised, would that I could.

Lenny Dykstra cleared of charge he threatened to kill N.J. Uber driver, admits to minor offense

Charges that Lenny Dykstra threatened to kill an Uber driver in a wild, late-night ride that ended at a police headquarters in New Jersey last year were dropped Friday after the former baseball great agreed to plead guilty to disorderly conduct.

Superior Court Judge Lisa Miralles Walsh reduced a charge of third-degree terroristic threats to a petty disorderly persons offense and dropped drug possession charges during a hearing in Union County.

Dykstra ‘s attorney, David Bahuriak, had argued a Linden police search of Dykstra’s belongings was improper and that there were no witnesses who could say Dykstra threatened the driver.

No matter how bad things get for Lenny, at least he can always look back to a decade ago, when he proved several folk to be fools….
