Detroit Tigers star -- and World Series failure -- Delmon Young has pled "guilty" to aggravated harassment after shouting an anti-Semitic slur at a panhandler earlier this year ... and tackling another person to the ground.
Delmon was arrested for the incident in NYC in April -- when he was approached by a Jewish-looking panhandler (whatever that means) outside a hotel, and shouted, "F**king Jews! F**king Jews!"
Delmon was confronted by another person on the street after shouting the slur, and the baseball star tackled the man ... who then called 911. Cops showed up and arrested Delmon for aggravated harassment.
Delmon has now pled "guilty" as part of a plea deal -- in which he was sentenced to perform 10 days community service, and participate in a hate crime program at the Museum of Tolerance in NYC.
If he completes everything, Delmon will be allowed to withdraw his "guilty" plea to "aggravated harassment" -- and plead to just "harassment" instead, a lesser infraction.
