New York Yankees special advisor Reggie Jackson released a statement through the team regarding recent comments made to Sports Illustrated:

"In trying to convey my feelings about a few issues that I am passionate about, I made the mistake of naming some specific players."

"This was inappropriate and unfair to those players, some of which are very close friends of mine. I think there are ways to speak from the heart without hurting people, and I’m disappointed that I didn’t take greater care in expressing my views.

“I have been proactively reaching out to make personal apologies to those within the Hall of Fame community that I offended, and to the Yankees organization for any disruption that I caused in the clubhouse. I continue to have a strong relationship with the club, and look forward to continuing in my role with the team. As always, I remain dedicated to the great game of baseball."
