NEW YORK – On May 4, also known as Star Wars Day, New York Yankees fans spoke to their inner Palpatine Emperor and brought their anger to Houston. Astros as soon as they stepped on the field.
“One bang, fastball!” Screamed a fan at Astros’ second baseman. Jose Altuve was practicing hitting the ball.
“You don’t deserve your reward!” Another yelled at Astros’ third bassist Alex Bregman.
Tuesday was the first day the crowds at Yankee Stadium had a chance to express their anger at the Astros for a badge theft program that included trash smashing during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
Forget the fact that the scandal took place almost a year ago, both AJ Hinch and Alex Cora returned from suspension for their role in the scandal, and only five players remained from the World Champions. Series 2017, Yankee fans haven’t forgotten it and want to make sure they aren’t happy to hear it.
“As soon as the schedule came out, we bought these tickets, so this was like a revenge tour because they didn’t come here last year and when they played they weren’t as welcome as they were about to get. Right now, “Yankee fan John Guerin said.” I booed them at home last year. I’m in my living room. “
David Taub, from Brooklyn, came to the stadium wearing Oscar the Grouch with a tank top reading “Trashtros”, but he said he was unable to enter the stadium due to the new policy.
“It was about $ 90 and I ordered it and it was three weeks to reorder it, so I ordered it as soon as possible,” Taub said. “I’ve been playing the game for a long time since the schedule came out. I’ve been waiting to play it. It’s been over a year and a half waiting for the Astros to come. I looped around this game as soon as I realized the fans were allowed.
Throughout the evening, chants went out throughout the Yankee Stadium, regardless of whether the Astros were hitting the plate or not.When Bregman opened the house for the first time, the Yankee Stadium crowd split into chants. Throughout the evening, fans met Carlos Correa, Bregman and Altoof with the loudest and most consistent laughter.
“They’re mostly Altuve, Correa and Bregman,” Jack Genesi said. “They’re the main players who play well and under that statistic they play at home much better than the visiting team and they are the players who won the World Series. Their 2017 teams have changed most of the time. But those people are still there. “
