The Curse of Mr. Jones

Andruw Jones Rookie year

For four years now, Yankees fans have had a love affair with right-fielder Nick Swisher. The always smiling, laughing and jovial “bro” who happens to be a ballplayer would always interact with the fans, giving away baseballs and always engaging in light conversation, even as a game was in progress.
