Ron Darling Stands By Lenny Dykstra Allegations

In a recent article, Dykstra's former teammate Ron Darling is claiming that Dykstra hurled a plethora of racial insults at Red Sox pitcher Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd.

In the book, released Tuesday, Darling wrote that Dykstra was "shouting every imaginable and unimaginable insult and expletive in his [Boyd's] direction - foul, racist, hateful, hurtful stuff" while in the on-deck circle. He lamented not doing anything about it - and said, if anything, the team may have benefited from Dykstra's behavior.

"Oil Can was on the receiving end of the ugliest piece of vitriol I've ever heard - in a bar, on a baseball diamond ... anywhere", Darling wrote.

"I'm warming up for a ballgame and I'm preparing to go out and try to get the New York Mets out one at a time and that's all that's on my mind".

Dykstra clubbed a leadoff home run into the right-field seats that night at Fenway Park, but he's strongly denied Darling's charges and even threatened his former teammate with legal action and bodily harm in an ESPN Radio interview on Monday.

Samantha is no longer with us but she will not be forgotten, ' wrote Seymour Josephson, a sales manager with a technology company. A funeral service will be held Wednesday at Congregation Beth Chaim in New Jersey , according to Josephson's Facebook page.

Dykstra has replied to the accusations, saying they are categorically false and that he actually intends to sue Darling for defamation.

"When you start bringing up this kind of stuff, this is crossing the line. The bench jockey could be anything that you wanted it to be".

After hearing of the claim, Dykstra called it a "flat-out lie" and that he planned to take Darling to court.

Boyd say he did not hear Dykstra's racist comments, and that he'd always admired Dykstra but that he believed Dykstra may have made the remarks. I had 30 lawyers calling me fact-checking everything.

"So I'm quite disturbed about it, but I guess what you see on the surface is not really what a person might seems to be. It's all a lie".
