Former MLB pitcher Dennis Eckersley talked about the time his best friend and former teammate stole his wife. He made the statement during the NESN broadcast during Friday night’s Yankees and Red Sox game when he was asked about rivalries.
The friend in question is former Indians outfielder turned broadcaster Rick Manning. He and Eckersley’s ex-wife would later marry and divorce.

A hall of fame broadcasting moment by the hall of fame pitcher. We were really close to a real life Brockmire type of moment.
That would have been amazing.
