The father of major league baseball star Reggie Jackson was admitted to a cardiac-care unit last night after being arrested for shooting at a man and his wife during a quarrel in East Oak Lane. The other man in the quarrel also was arrested. Police said Martinez Jackson, 80, was driving on 6th Street near Somerville Avenue with two passengers about 7:30 p.m. when a man identified as Richard Py, 33, banged the side of Jackson's auto with his hand. Py, who was walking in the street, told police he thought the auto had come too close to him. After hitting it with his hand, police said, Py started kicking the auto and banging on the roof and hood with his fist.

NEW YORK - The New York Yankees have told Mr. October to stay away this summer. The Yankees want Reggie Jackson to steer clear of the clubhouse and team events following his pointed remarks about Alex Rodriguez and several former stars, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press Monday. The Hall of Famer will lay low for several weeks, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because there was no formal announcement. Jackson was reportedly not disciplined or fined, and will remain as a special adviser to the Yankees.

Former Yankees great Reggie Jackson is selling the jersey he wore when he hit three home runs against the Dodgers in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, earning him the nickname "Mr. October. " Jackson told Bloomberg Radio earlier this week that he would use the proceeds to make significant donations to family members, as well as his Mr. October Foundation for Kids. With New York up three games to two, Jackson homered on three consecutive pitches from three different pitchers in the 8-4 win at Yankee Stadium.

REGGIE JACKSON, as far back as his days at Cheltenham High School has had an ego the size of his boyhood 19027 ZIP code. Sometimes when a person of such conceit says something that others deem offensive and stupid, the blabbermouth should be just told to shut up and go home.   Jackson, in a recent Sports Illustrated interview, said what some folks deemed as disparaging remarks aimed at Alex Rodriguez, Gary Carter, Kirby Puckett, Jim Rice, Phil Niekro, Bert Blyleven and Don Sutton.

Martinez Jackson, 71, the father of professional baseball star Reggie Jackson, was robbed at knifepoint yesterday inside his Olney fur store, police said. Police said two thieves made off with a waist-length raccoon coat and a watch commemorating the day Jackson's son hit his 400th major league home run. Jackson, in an interview, placed the value of the coat at $1,000 and the watch, a Cartier, at about $1,700. Jackson said he was alone in the store at about 1 p.m. when two men in their twenties, who had been in twice before yesterday, entered a third time.

Reggie Jackson is a New York Yankee again. The 46-year-old, who was elected to the Hall of Fame this year, was introduced yesterday by club owner George Steinbrenner as special adviser to the team's general partners, which means he has no specific job description. Jackson will report to Joe Molloy, Steinbrenner's son-in-law, but his duties are not yet entirely clear. "This hiring is not a platform for anything," Steinbrenner said of his first appointment since returning from his suspension from baseball March 1. "This is because I truly believe in Reggie Jackson.

IT MAY GO down as the biggest impulse buy in history. Back in 2008, the Yankees began selling off items from their old stadium in the Bronx. Not surprisingly, former slugger Reggie Jackson, aka Mr. October, wanted a couple of mementos. "There were a few items I wanted to purchase before [it] was torn down, including my old locker and a section of the black bleachers off of centerfield," Jackson told the Associated Press. But why stop there? "I kept thinking about the stadium lettering, and if there was any way for me to own it. " Jackson said.

NEW YORK - Babe Ruth never spoke to Lou Gehrig, because Gehrig's mom once criticized the way Claire, Ruth's second wife, dressed Dorothy, Ruth's adopted daughter. Mickey Mantle hated Joe DiMaggio, because Joe D called him off a fly ball he was tracking and Mantle veered away and stepped in a drainage hole and wrecked his knee. Thurmon Munson detested Reggie Jackson, because Reggie said he was "the straw that stirred the drink" and because Jackson made more money than he did, which broke a promise they'd made to Munson.

NEW YORK - Yoenis Cespedes won baseball's Home Run Derby, becoming the first player left out of the All-Star Game to take home the crown. The Oakland Athletics slugger beat Bryce Harper, 9-8, in the final round last night at reconfigured Citi Field, hitting the decisive drive with five swings to spare. In only his second major league season, the outfielder from Cuba dropped his bat and raised his arm when he sent his 32nd homer of the night some 455 feet to deep centerfield, where it caromed off the back wall of the black batter's eye. He was swarmed by the American League All-Stars near the third-base line.

NEW YORK - Perhaps not since Cheltenham High's Reggie Jackson heard his name chanted by Yankees fans has a Gotham crowd yelled the name "Reggie" over and over again. But former 76er Reggie Evans got that treatment Tuesday night at the Barclays Center as the playoff-bound Brooklyn Nets handled the Sixers, 104-83. A Sixers forward from 2007 to '09, Evans pulled down 24 rebounds and scored 17 points to help the Nets to an easy victory in a game they led for all but 18 seconds of the first quarter.

Here's a sight sure to chill an infielder's blood: Detroit's massive Prince Fielder chugging his way into second trying to stretch a single and sliding in ahead of the tag. The Tigers slugger did just that in the second inning of a 5-1 win over the Angels on Thursday and in the process knocked Los Angeles second baseman Maicer Izturis into a snack bar on the mezzanine of Comerica Park. Fielder later scored Detroit's first run on a Jhonny Peralta double. "I gave myself a little headache," Fielder said of the play after the game.

ORLANDO — Dionte Christmas is a pretty happy soul, with an infectious smile, a hearty laugh and a zest for life that endears many to him. If you want to change that sunny disposition, just mention the date June 25, 2009, to the Temple graduate and he snarls menacingly. That was the date of the NBA draft. Christmas, whom many predicted to be a second-round selection, waited in his Olney home in vain. His name was never called and his road trip to reach his dream job started. There was a training-camp session with the Sixers after his draft snub, but he didn't latch on with the team.

Reggie Jackson spent Friday apologizing to the New York Yankees and Alex Rodriguez. Why? A Sports Illustrated story in which the former slugger, now a "special adviser" for the New York Yankees brass, said that A-Rod's numbers are too hinky, given the current slugger's admitted use of what they call the performance-enhancing drugs, to allow entrance into the Hall of Fame. "He is trying to rectify everything," Yankees manager Joe Girardi told ESPNNewYork.com. A baseball official described Yankees management as "disappointed" with Jackson's comments.
