Yankees fans are probably the worst fan base in all of sports as they can be quite crude, not only to opposing players, but to their own as well at times.
This time around, Yankees fans were pretty harsh as they watched on as Astros pitcher Zack Greinke got ready to pitch during Game 4. Fans at Yankee Stadium were taunting him, but it got really bad when chants started to attack Greinke’s battles with a social anxiety disorder and depression.
“Get him out!” the officer said.
Immediately, another cop grabbed the man, escorted him up the bleacher steps and out of the stadium.
Fans leaned over the concrete barrier between the stands and the bullpen and shouted insults about Greinke’s mother, too.
They also chanted “Donald,” Greinke’s first name.
Two police officers were stationed inside Houston’s bullpen, their backs against the wall as they looked toward the bleachers.
Another three uniformed officers were dispersed throughout the bleachers.
One of the officers stationed inside the bullpen pointed to a fellow cop in the bleachers and mouthed to him: “First one to mouth off, get him out.”
One officer pulled a fan aside and told him he would have to eject any fans that cursed at Greinke.
And at one point, Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte stood and watched a fan who hurled insults at him. Bracamonte then walked toward the cops in the dugout and smiled while watching the fan.”
The insults did not work as Greinke only allowed one run before he made his exit during the game, but it just shows how far Yankees fan will go to gain an edge.
It was Josh Reddick and manager A.J. Hinch who complained about Yankees fans throwing trash at players and on the field during game 3.
