Found October 08, 2012 on The Other Paper:

Two Maryland state troopers sure picked a bizarre time to ask New York Yankees star Derek Jeter for his autograph — while the shortstop was in the dugout during Sunday's playoff game against the Baltimore Orioles.

In the top of the ninth inning of the Yankees 7-2 win in Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Orioles at Camden Yards, the troopers asked Jeter and teammate Nick Swisher for autographs in the dugout, according to The New York Post.

"Swish was livid," said a spokesperson who witnessed the Super Troopers' request.

Asked if that ever happened before, Jeter said, "What do you think?"



Law enforcement officials are in the dugouts to serve as deterrents to abusive and annoying fans, but after Sunday's night's pesky behavior don't count on seeing those two cops anywhere near the dugout for Game 2.



Maybe Rabbit and Farva are available.
