Baseball season got underway yesterday. You can tell it's baseball season at Yankee Stadium because Lindsay Lohan was stealing signs.
Has LINDSAY LOHAN fallen off the wagon? Lindsay is back in New York, where she hit the Motor City Bar, the Rose Bar and the Cabin Down Below.

I'm always a klutz!!!" One vice she apparently hasn't given up is cigarettes.
