Dodgers fan arrested for Cincy trespass

‘‘Apparently, he’s been obsessed with the Dodgers for a long time,’’ she said. She said she didn’t believe he had any weapons, but said another attorney would probably be appointed to represent him on the burglary count, which could carry prison time upon conviction.

Sexton is known online among Dodger fans as ‘‘Troy From West Virginia’’ for video postings about the team and its players, including his admiration for former Dodger relief pitcher Joe Beimel and coarse retorts to critics of young Dodger star Yasiel Puig.

There sure is a lot of crazy going around these days.

Derek Jeter makes a mental gaffe to give Mariners a cheap triple

With the Yankees down, 1-0, in the fourth inning of their matchup with the Mariners in the Bronx on Monday, shortstop Derek Jeter committed a mental gaffe that put Kyle Seager on third base with a triple.

Seager popped the ball into no-man’s land in short left field near the foul line. Outfielder Brett Gardner made a diving effort for the ball, but it hit off his glove and rolled into foul territory.

Jeter, apparently thinking the ball was foul, scooped it up and stood with his back to the play for a few moments as Seager hustled around second and headed for third. By the time Jeter realized the ball was live and threw to the base, Seager was safe with a very cheap triple.
