Readers & columnist exchange views on Sweeney’s outburst

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–It seems last week’s column by Tim Ellsworth about Mike Sweeney charging the mound on Detroit pitcher Jeff Weaver struck quite a nerve with readers.

“I appreciate all correspondence I receive,” Ellsworth writes this week, “whether readers agree with me or not. Some wrote to express appreciation for my views. Others think I’m an idiot.”
