NEW YORK —Former Detroit Tigers slugger Delmon Young pleaded guilty Wednesday
to aggravated harassment for shouting an anti-Semitic slur and tackling a man to
the ground outside a New York City hotel last spring. Clay Matthews

. The 27-year-old outfielder, who became a free
agent after the World Series, was ordered to complete 10 days of community
service and enrol in a program at the Museum of Tolerance New York as part of
the Manhattan District Attorneys office restorative justice program. “Delmon
clearly regrets what happened and took the necessary steps to put this issue
behind him today,” his lawyer, Dan Ollen, said in a statement. “He has learned
from this experience and will continue to do everything he can to improve
himself as a person and player.” In the court-ordered program, Young will
participate in interactive workshops, videos, guided discussions and special
instruction by museum educators to explore issues of prejudice, diversity, and
tolerance, the district attorneys office said. The museum reports progress back
to prosecutors. If Young completes the program successfully hell be able to
withdraw his plea and plead guilty to a lesser charge. “Dispositions for
defendants charged with bias-related crimes need to be thoughtful and tailored
toward healing both the defendant and the entire targeted community,” District
Attorney Cyrus R. Vance said. Ollen said that in six months, “the charges
against Delmon will be vacated and reduced to a simple violation of harassment,
which is not a crime under New York law.” Young was standing outside of the
Hilton New York and was accused of yelling anti-Jewish epithets at a group of
tourists, tussling with them and tackling one to the ground in April, when the
Tigers were in town to play the New York Yankees. Young apologized to his team
and was suspended without pay for seven days by Major League Baseball, costing
him approximately $257,240 of his US$6,725,000 salary. He batted .267 during the
season with 18 homers and 74 RBIs, and hit three home runs and had a .313
batting average in the post-season. He had a tying home run in the sixth inning
of Game 4 of the World Series. San Francisco won 4-3 in 10 innings to complete a
sweep the Tigers. Detroit is prepared to let the designated hitter sign with
another team. Speaking at the general managers meetings in Indian Wells, Calif.,
Tigers President Dave Dombrowski declined comment. “Because hes a free agent,”
he said. Nick Perry Jersey . The Anchorage native won
a new, US$50,000 Acura MD X Thursday when he hit a hole-in-one at his own Scotty
Gomez Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament. James Starks Jersey . There was no collision,
but a lead horse for the team of driver Chad Harden suddenly went down, bringing
two others horses with him and sending Harden and an outrider flying through the
air. http://www.nflpackersfansshop.com/aaron-rodgers-womens-jersey/

innings against a previous nemesis and Jon Jay drove in two runs to help the St.

.J. —The New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara had
arthroscopic surgery Thursday to repair his left hip, and is expected to miss
the rest of the season. FRISCO, Texas—Jackson had a goal and two assists to
help FC Dallas get a season high in scoring in a 5-0 victory over the Portland
Timbers on Saturday night. Andrew Jacobson, Scott Sealy, Ruben Luna also scored
for Dallas (5-10-7), which played without top offensive player Brek Shea—left
off the roster for disciplinary reasons. David Ferreira also had two assists and
Dallas benefited from an own goal by Portlands Hanyer Mosquera. Dallas, which
won for the second time in three games since a 13-game winless streak (07-6),
hadnt scored more than twice in a game all season. “I think we put it all
together,” Jacobson said. “We had really good balance on the team, we attacked
well, everyone defended well. Its kind of what weve been waiting for all season,
just for it to click and know what it feels like when it works.” The Timbers
(5-11-4) lost their fourth straight, and third since general manager Gavin
Wilkinson took over coaching duties from John Spencer on July 9. Portland
remained winless in 10 road games (0-8-2) while being outscored 20-2. The
Timbers have not scored a goal on the road since April 14 and set a
league-record with a 697-minute road scoreless streak, surpassing the previous
mark of 683 set by New York in 2009. “What is there to say? Im humiliated. I
think we quit tonight,” Wilkinson said. “Right now, were trying to fix a few
broken things, and it showed tonight. This is unacceptable, completely
unacceptable. Im humiliated. I feel terrible for the organization. You can have
poor performances, but theres no excuse for your work ethic ever being poor.
Tonight it was poor—very, very poor.” Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman needed
to make just one save in recording his fourth shutout of the season. “Obviously
the end results fantastic, something weve been wanting,” Dallas coach Schellas
Hyndman said. “A good performance when you look at the team. It was probably
production-wise, our best of the year. When you look at the team, when I
evaluate players after every game, I think every player on the field was above
average and you need to do that to be successful in this league.” Shea, who
scored 11 goals last season but has just three in 14 games this year, was seen
arguing with coach Schellas Hyndman after being substituted out in the 64th
minute of Dallas 2-1 loss to San Jose on Wednesday. He was told not to practice
on Frriday and may sit out some more. Clay Matthews
. “I think its been a very, very frustrating season for
Brek,” Hyndman said. “I think the mental part with Brek is really affecting him
and there was a flare-up at the San Jose game and you all know about it, but I
think thats just kind of the tip of the iceberg, if I can say it that way. I
think for Breks best interests, to get back to the Brek that we all know, I
think now we just need to pull him away, take the pressure off him, let him
think about what was going in your life last year for you to have such a great
season and try to go back to what you were doing last year.” Seven minutes after
Portlands best scoring chance of the game resulted in Mike Fucitos shot
ricocheting off the goalpost and rolling along the goal line, Dallas got on the
scoreboard in the 16th minute. Jair Benitez delivered a cross from wide on the
left side into the middle, int
