Wells' book comments costly

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) It looks like New York Yankees pitcher David Wells is going to take a sizeable hit in the wallet.

The New York Times reports Wells will be slapped with a $100,000 fine for controversial comments he made in his new book, "Perfect I'm Not! Boomer on Beer, Brawls, Backaches and Baseball."

The newspaper, citing an unidentified source, reports Wells has agreed not to appeal the fine, which will go to the Boys and Girls Club.

In advance copies of the book Wells wrote he was "half drunk" when he pitched a perfect game in 1998, and speculated on steroid and amphetamine use by major league players. The book also included disparaging comments about some of his teammates.
