The traveling secretary of the New York Yankees confessed in court that he did not report $53,350 in tip income he had received over five years from players and coaches.

David Szen, 56, pleaded guilty to filing a false tax return. “I was wrong, and for that I’m humbly sorry, your honor,” he said to U.S. District Judge Mark Kravitz. Szen is on a paid leave of absence. The estimated tax loss is $10,285.

He received tips ranging from a few hundred dollars to $10,000 for his services, which included reserving flights and hotels.

Szen faces sentencing on March 7. He could receive six months in jail.
