One wonders how a person who managed to earn $11.5 million over his career could end up robbing a jewelry store for cash. The background story on this has to be pretty sad.

Former baseball star Jeff Reardon was granted a $5,000 bond this morning and ordered to be placed on house arrest one day after police say he robbed a jewelry store in Palm Beach Gardens.
Reardon, 50, a Palm Beach Gardens resident, was arrested Monday after police say he walked into Hamilton Jewelers in the Gardens Mall and handed an employee a note. The note demanded money and implied he had a gun, authorities say.

I will always remember this one Reardon baseball moment:
In game 1 of a 1991 day/night double header at Fenway,
Reardon gave up a 9th inning,game tying home run to
Robin Ventura.The White Sox went on to sweep the 3
game series,leaving the Blow Sawx frustrated beyond belief.
But this is a sad,intriguing story,no doubt.

He claiming that his depression medication made him do it. If his record is clean, expect a plea that involves psychiatric treatment instead of jail time. I hope it works out ok, and glad nobody was hurt.

I can just hear the TV advertisements for that medication now. As they list the possible side effects we hear somewhere in the middle, "Some patients have reported an irresistable urge to rob banks."

Not to mention MLB has a pension (don't know how good it is but should be at least pretty decent).

Sounds like Reardon has some mental issues, hopefully the judge will take that into consideration and get him some help.

He looks like The Duke from "Boondock Saints"


Also....his lawyer said that Reardon is pretty financially sound

And The Terminator (aka Reardon) looks like a bearded Joey Buttafuco. <-- hope I don't get banned for typing that word. :D:

So... on his commemorative baseball card, do they add a column called "Blown Robberies?"

A very sad story. I hope he is given the help he needs.

I did a double take when I saw that on the news.

However, does having a "Closer's Mentality" drive you to rob a jewelry store?

Jeff Reardon's son died of a drug overdose several years ago which probably has a lot to do with the depression and other issues he is facing.

God Bless him and his family and hopefully he will be able to recover.

Well, I hope things get better for him, but he robbed a jewelry store with the threat of a gun. If this was some anonymous poor guy in the city who was battling depression I doubt there would be much chance of him not getting some time in prison. In any event, good luck to Reardon in trying to get his life back in order.
