Spike Lee hits the memorabilia jackpot
There’s nothing like a game-used souvenir, just ask Spike Lee.
The Oscar-nominated director hit the memorabilia jackpot in the first inning of Sunday’s Angels-Yankees game when Mark Teixeira’s bat slipped from the slugger’s hands and practically landed in Lee’s lap.
Lee took cover from the flying bat before snagging it from the stands’ floor. Always an entertainer, the actor showcased his left-handed swing for those in attendance.
Lee, a long-time New York sports fan, is known for his courtside appearances at New York Knicks games and is often seen interacting with NBA players.
While Lee walked away from the game happy, Yankees fans were less than pleased to see their team fall to the Angels 10-8. The first-place Bombers kickoff a three-game set with the Blue Jays tonight; coverage begins at 6 p.m. on YES.
