IN BRIEF : Yankees Executive Injured in Fall
New York Yankees executive Clyde King was listed in stable condition in a North Carolina hospital today after being injured in a fall earlier this week.
King, 64, special adviser to Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, was building an elevated playhouse for his six grandchildren at his home Monday when he fell, breaking five ribs and his collarbone, officials said.
When asked about Steinbrenner’s reaction to the fall, King replied, “He wanted to know what I was doing in a tree house.”
