Freaky ‘Zim Bears’ in High Demand

Remember when then-72-year-old New York Yankees bench coach Don Zimmer was taken to the ground by Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez during Game 3 of the 2003 ALCS?  Well, Zim, a senior baseball advisor for the Tampa Bay Rays, is now more popular than ever — or at least his “cute” or “creepy” bear doll is.  The Rays recently gave away 10,000 “Zim Bears,” which have become very hot commodities.  Watch Len Berman video report here.  Thanks to John Cerone for the link.
