Reardon robs jewelerly store


Yea, you read the headline correctly. Former Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Jeff Reardon held up a jewlery store on Monday, netting him only $170 in cash.

This is the same man who, in the final decade of his 16-year career, earned over $10 million dollars and saved (and won) game seven of the 1987 World Series for the Minnesota Twins.

Coincidentally, Jeff Reardon was reported to have been taking antidepressants for well over a year since the suicide of his son.

The robbery and Reardon's statement of having no recollection of the events of Monday night make this case of a falling star that much more odd.
