Fenway Groundskeeper Sues Yankees: The Fenway Park groundskeeper who was involved in an altercation during the ALCS with Yankees players Jeff Nelson and Karim Garcia has sued the players for more than $33,000 for medical bills, lost wages and damage to his sense of smell.

In the criminal case, all three men pleaded not guilty to assault and battery charges last month, with pre-trial hearings set for March for the Yankees and April for the groundskeeper.

Depending on the outcome of the criminal trial, the Yankees players may decide to settle the case, rather than spend the time and energy to litigate it.
