(Newser) – A construction worker on the Yankees' new stadium made a unique play to reverse the Curse, reports the New York Post. A Red Sox fan, Gino Castignoli buried a David Ortiz jersey behind home plate last summer, but two former colleagues located and exhumed the shirt today. Now the Sox-lover has a new enemy: "I hope his coworkers kick the s---- out of him," said Yanks' top dog Hank Steinbrenner.

Castignoli, who has pleaded guilty involvement in a mob deal, revealed his deed to the Post last week. Then his old co-workers found the jersey after 5 hours of digging through concrete. Steinbrenner the younger says he doesn't believe in curses.  "Then why is he making such a big stink about it?" asks Castignoli.
