Glenallen Hill first check to Radomski March 2001. Was not on Yankees after 2000. (Batted .000 in the Series)

"For the investigation, Radomski produced one check from Hill for $3,200, dated March 14, 2001," Regarding Glenallen Hill's 2000 World Series performance: Over all 5 games:
  • 3   3  0  0  0  0  0   0  0  0  .000  .000  .000  0
From Baseball-Reference.com
  • Nevertheless, you see the exact opposite written, such as this from the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
"SANTA CRUZ -- Hometown hero Glenallen Hill -- a key player on the New York Yankees' 2000 World Series championship team -- was named in the Mitchell report released Thursday."
  • A "key player" on the World Series team? Over the 5 games he had 3 at bats, got no hits, no walks, nothing.

  • What about the 16 home runs he hit during 40 regular-season games after the Yankees acquired him that summer? I would say those were pretty key to the Yankees' pennant race, no? Just because a guy didn't hit in the World Series doesn't mean he didn't matter. Otherwise, Bernie Williams and his career .208 BA in the World Series would render him as a minor cog in the title teams.

  • My first point was that Hill's first check to Radomski wasn't until March 2001 by which time he was no longer a Yankee. My second point was the reference in the newspaper to his participation in a world series team.
