What a day for Jose Altuve!
The New York Yankees fan base had been giving the Houston Astros star absolute hell for 2 games so far in a 3-game series. On Thursday, it was his birthday and Yankees fans sung him a special song to show how much he means to them.
It was all fun and games until Jose Altuve came to the plate in the top of the 8th-inning and hit a three-run go-ahead homer to shut the crowd up.
Check out the fan posted video where the crowd could be heard chanting ‘cheater’ at him right before that bomb:
The Astros won the game 7-4 to salvage a win in the series.
