Honoring the Yankee Flipper

This weekend, the family and I went to the Darby Creek Park outside of Columbus, a nice park with many trails and a small herd of bison. We noticed some construction at the park. It looked like they were building a new road and I spotted this sign:

The Jack McDowell? The former Cy Young award winner who flipped off a home crowd at Yankee Stadium after giving up nine runs in less than five innings? Personally, I think it’s about time. The city of Columbus has historical ties to the Yankees and this was one of the most memorable moments of the ’95 season.

It’s not like there’s another Jack McDowell out there, is there?
