(Newser) – Yankee boss Hal Steinbrenner blew a fuse after Lady Gaga's Jameson-fueled appearance in the Bombers' clubhouse Friday night, banning the songstress, who says she's a lifelong Yankees fan, from repeat performances. Gaga and two girlfriends crashed security at the clubhouse and hung out with the team for 30 minutes, the New York Post reports, declaring her "persona non Gaga." Gaga was wearing black lingerie and fishnet stockings, accessorized with a Yankee jersey; in case that didn't draw enough attention, she did a lot of grabbing her boobs, per reports.

Meanwhile, the Mets took the opposite approach after her beer-swilling and flipping-the-crowd spectacle at Citi Field the week before: They're using it in a promotion for David Wright as the National League’s starting third baseman in the All-Star Game. Wednesday they'll be hosting “Mets Fans Go Gaga for Wright” night, with the first 20,000 spectators getting free foam fingers to encourage fans to use “the right finger” to vote online, the New York Times reports. And Gaga has one other big fan. Click here to see who wants to hang out with her...and her whiskey bottle.
