No Yankees fan wants to get in the way of a Giancarlo Stanton home run laser, but it’s possible more will start sacrificing their bodies once they see the consequences of letting such baseballs into the wrong hands.
It got out in a hurry, and hurriedly created a quarrel among friends.
At least, we think these guys are friends.
Once the ball made landfall, an immediate wrestling match for possession ensued, with the Braves fan unfortunately coming out on top and hucking the souvenir back towards the infield.
Is it just us or…did the Yankees fan kind of, sort of let his boy win here? Seems like there could’ve been more effort exerted to keep the pearl.
One Yankees fan got owned on the Giancarlo Stanton home run ball.
In all honesty, how much of a loser do you have to be to simply not want a Stanton home run ball?
He’s a possible future Hall of Famer. Now that Miguel Cabrera has cleared the 500 home run marker, Stanton’s among the most likely active players to pass that threshold someday (seriously, look it up). Plus, it’s not like the Atlanta bleachers are a pressure cooker. Nobody’s going to go absolutely wild on you if you hold onto your free gift.
Plus, it’s mostly Yankees fans out there. You’ll probably just get cheered if you pocket that baseball.
Braves fans have been granted a rare treat in this two-game series, thanks to the National League rules that absolutely demand a boring pitcher hit instead of Luke Voit. Thanks to the domino effect, they’ve gotten all three of the Yankees’ giants (Aaron Judge, Joey Gallo and Stanton) across the outfield, roaming the terrain in both games.
The alignment’s resulted in a few spellbinding moments already, not the least of which was Stanton’s muscle shot to halve the deficit on Tuesday.
If you catch a baseball, from here on out, just…keep that thing for future generations.
Your kid’s not going to be angry it came off a rival’s bat.
