Ex-New York Yankees batboy Luis Castillo lived every baseball fan’s fantasy and is now revealing team secrets to the New York Post… even how he got the nickname of Squeegee by Derek Jeter himself. According to Castillo, Jeter would great him and fellow batboys by saying, “‘How’re you doin’, biatches?’ Bee-atch-es. You’d turn around and say to yourself, Hunh? Was that Derek Jeter who waltzed past, the team captain, the man who is — in the public eye — a model of correctness and good taste?”
Castillo started his tenure with the Yankees when he was just 14 but later served as a clubhouse assistant. Though a committed man now to our Jersey Chaser of the Month, Jeter used his trainer to pick up woman in New York night clubs. “.He would ask the trainer to go up to the woman and tell her that Derek Jeter wanted to talk with her. Then he would leave the bar first and wait for her. I would often see groups of women giggling and leaving with the trainer, who would lead them to their rendezvous with the captain.”
While Castillo didn’t rearrange booty calls for Jeter, he did have to lay out clothes and put toothpaste on his toothbrush for Alex Rodriguez.
“Jeter and some of the other guys were terrific tippers. Roger Clemens gave me $3,000 at the end of the year. Posada gave me $7,000. A-Rod might come in with $1,400. Sure, it’s still a sizable amount, but when he found out that other players were tipping higher, he had to imitate them, and he bumped his tips up.” Castillo said. “He had to make sure he was the best tipper in the league. He even tipped me $100 a week to make sure there was a creatine shake waiting for him after each home game.”
Wonder if Cameron Diaz has to make his creatine shake now?
