Ex-major leaguer Offerman denies swinging bat at 2 players in 2007 minor league game

Former major leaguer Jose Offerman says he didn't swing his bat at two other players or cause their injuries in scuffle during a 2007 minor league baseball game in Connecticut.

Offerman testified Friday at a civil trial in federal court in Bridgeport. He's being sued for allegedly attacking two Bridgeport Bluefish players after being hit by a pitch during a comeback bid with the Long Island Ducks.

The lawsuit says catcher Johnathan Nathans suffered a head injury when Offerman charged the mound and swung his bat. He's suing Offerman and the Ducks for $4.5 million.

Offerman was charged with felony assault after the incident but was granted a probation program that resulted in the charges being dismissed.

Offerman played for the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and other teams during a 15-year career.
