 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Billy Crystal's ``mahvelous'' time with the New York Yankees is over.
The team released the actor on his 60th birthday, one day after he struck out in his only at-bat against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The announcement came at the bottom of the second page in Friday's game notes. Under transactions, it said ``March 14 Released INF Billy Crystal.''
The team gave Crystal, a longtime Yankees' fan, the opportunity to be the designated hitter and lead off in the first inning Thursday because of his ambassador-like role for baseball.
