Boone happy for Red Sox fans
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Aaron Boone is happy he no longer has to feel the wrath of Red Sox fans.

BooneÔŅĹs eleventh-inning homer in game seven of the 2003 American League championship series put the Yankees past the rival Red Sox and into the World Series.

But he says some Boston fans have already said heÔŅĹs off the hook

now that Boston finally won a World Series title.

Boone hasnÔŅĹt played since injuring his left knee in a pickup basketball game last January.

He says at the time, he didnÔŅĹt realize his five-point-seven-five (m) million dollar, one-year contract with New York prohibited him from playing basketball. He only got 30 days termination pay from the Yankees.

But donÔŅĹt feel too bad for him. That totaled just over 917-thousand dollars.

Boone signed a two-year contract with Cleveland as a free agent in June, but needed another knee operation.
