According to ESPN, Reggie Jackson contacted Alex Rodriguez, Joe Girardi and Yankees officials to apologize for the comments he made in this week’s edition of Sports Illustrated (SI). Rodriguez reportedly confirmed that Jackson called him, however, he declined to reveal the nature of the talk.

“We’re going to keep that very private,” Rodriguez reportedly said.

According to reports, Jackson told SI that Rodriguez‘s 642 career homers have to be called into question because of his admitted usage of performance-enhancing drug.

“Al’s a very good friend. But I think there are real questions about his numbers. As much as I like him, what he admitted about his usage does cloud some of his records,” Jackson was quoted as saying by SI.

Jackson was said to be the Yankees‘ “special adviser to the senior managing partners.” No disciplinary action has been discussed at this point, but Yankees officials are said to be disappointed with his comments.
