POLS PEPPER YANK REGGIE
By FRANKIE EDOZIEN
March 29, 2006 -- City Council members tangled yesterday with former Yankee slugger Reggie Jackson, as the team tried to win approval for its plans for a new stadium.
The legislators branded the Yankee presentation as insulting and lambasted the organization for routinely failing the South Bronx.
The Hall of Famer urged lawmakers to back the new stadium, although no council vote was taken yesterday.
"While I appreciate what you said, Mr. Jackson, I think it's a day late and a dollar short," fumed Councilwoman Helen Foster (D-Bronx).
