Continuing his quest to make amends for comments first published more than a week ago, Yankees senior advisor Reggie Jackson released a statement Thursday publicly stating his contrition.

“I have been proactively reaching out to make personal apologies to those within the Hall of Fame community that I offended, and to the Yankees organization for any disruption that I caused in the clubhouse,” said Jackson, a Hall of Famer, in part of his statement. “I continue to have a strong relationship with the club, and look forward to continuing in my role with the team. As always, I remain dedicated to the great game of baseball."

A baseball official with knowledge of the team’s thinking told ESPNNewYork.com that Jackson won’t be with the team this upcoming home stand, but could join it on the road in Oakland the following week.
