Yankees fans have never had a great reputation and they seemed to live up to that during a recent matchup in the playoffs.
Following a Game 3 win over the Yankees — Astros pitchers informed Mary Rivera of ESPN that they found themselves being showered with beer and almost hit with beer cans while in the bullpen.
That wasn’t even the worst part as they stated they saw a woman get hit in the back of the head and need medical attention afterwards.
I mean, just look at the saltiness from Yankees fans after the game:
Houston Astros right fielder Josh Reddick called out the fan base after the game for tossing water bottles, baseballs and other objects on the field during New York’s 4-1 loss in the AL Championship Series on Tuesday night.
“You throw a baseball hard enough and hit somebody in the head when they’re not looking, it could do some damage to the player, so it’s definitely disrespectful and at the same time very unsafe,” Reddick said.
“I don’t think fans realize when they do that that you could hit a player. You hit a baseball player with a baseball from the third deck, it’s got a little bit of movement on it so it can definitely do some damage to you and it’s frustrating to see as a player in the outfield,” Reddick said. “I saw water bottles and like two baseballs. There were two souvenir baseballs thrown in centre and left field. I got all the water bottles in right.”
Get it together, Yankees fans.
