The Astros have not been getting a hero’s welcome from the home fans at Yankee Stadium during the American League Championship Series — in fact, far from it.
Astros players such as Josh Reddick have complained that fans heckled them in Game 3 and Game 4, which is to be expected.
What isn’t, though, is Yankees fans throwing objects at the players, as that’s completely crossing the line. Astros closer Roberto Osuna addressed reporters recently, speaking about how Yankees fans “cross the line” during games.
“Sometimes they really cross the line,” he said. “…MLB needs to do something about it. Bringing stuff about your mother and your family, you can say whatever yu what to us, and we’re not gonna get offended, but when you bring family or mother [into it], that’s too much.”
Fans have to be better, as heckling is one thing, but pelting visiting fans with objects isn’t cool, and there’s no place for it.
