A bunch of Yankees players were upset with video being circulated of Masahiro Tanaka on the ground after being drilled in the head by a Giancarlo Stanton line drive during Saturday’s simulated game at Yankee Stadium.
Aaron Judge could be seen and heard yelling at someone in the stadium about shooting video and would soon take his frustrations out on people via Twitter.
“I get that everyone has a job to do but continuing to film and zoom in on someone hurt and down in the stadium doesn’t sit well with me!,” Judge wrote. “Doesn’t matter who it is, teammate, coach, or fan! Praying for Tanaka!”
Gleyber Torres joined Judge, writing on Twitter: “I understand that people are doing their job and want to show everything we are doing, I understand that, but showing that exact moment that happened with our teammate does not seem right to us, we feel terrible to see the video in each part of social media.”
Many of the videos that are being circulated online have actually come from YES Network, which is owned by the team.
