SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Jim Rice's advice to Little Leaguers: Don't use today's major leaguers as role models.
Speaking to players before the start of the Little League World Series, the new baseball Hall of Famer said today's major leaguers are too focused on individual goals and getting big contracts.
"You see a Manny Ramirez, you see an A-Rod [Alex Rodriguez], you see [Derek] Jeter ... Guys that I played against and with, these guys you're talking about cannot compare," Rice said to Little Leaguers gathered in the cafeteria.

You insolent shit. No wonder the writers were so disinclined to vote you a plaque for all those years....
JETER? WHAT THE FUCK HAS JETER EVER DONE TO YOU, OR YOUR "SENSIBILITIES," THAT YOU THINK YOU'RE IN A POSITION TO STAND IN JUDGEMENT?
You one said, when asked what was he best thing about being a major league player, "the fifteenth and thirtieth." Because that's when you got paid.
Jeter's donated more money to underprivileged kids than you ever got paid, you useless piece of shit.
I'm spitting on your bronzed douchebag face next time I hit Cooperstown.
