There were more fan shenanigans in The Bronx on Tuesday, but at least this time it didn’t involve a ball being thrown at an opposing outfielder.
During the top of the sixth inning against the Phillies, a Yankees fan raced onto the field to the delight of the crowd at the Stadium before being slammed down by a security guard and escorted off.
It was the latest incident at Yankee Stadium. On Saturday night against the Red Sox, a fan threw a ball that hit left fielder Alex Verdugo in the back. That fan has since been banned from all MLB stadiums for life.
That same night, Catherine Varitek, the wife of former Red Sox catcher and current assistant coach Jason Varitek, said a Yankees man spat on her 9-year-daughter as they walked to their car outside The Stadium.
