The New York Yankees didn’t come to play with any semblance of urgency in Wednesday’s series-finale against the Texas Rangers.
They’ve been sloppy defensively and their situational hitting has been as bad as it’s been all season, save a two-run double from Kyle Higashioka.
The good news is that fans had more than enough energy to make up for the players’ seemingly unbothered attitude, even though Yankee Stadium was pretty empty for a late-September game in the middle of a playoff race.
Unfortunately, one fan had a little too much pent up energy and moronically decided to take a lap around the outfield. It didn’t take long for the fan to get pinned down by security, which seemed to have everything under control.
However, video shows the Yankees security team members having A LOT of trouble removing the rogue fan from the field.
Check it out.
Yankees security struggled to remove a rogue fan from the outfield.
Not one, not two, but THREE security guards were required before this lunatic was wrestled to the ground. If you’re a loser fan who decides to run out onto the field, you might as well get your money’s worth, right? It seems logical given what’s waiting for them on the other side (hopefully a ban for life), and this fan, well, he wasn’t going down without a fight.
Much like the Yankees’ offense, the security team really dropped the ball here. This was their moment to shine and they came up short.
Luckily for the Yankees offense, they get a few more cracks to redeem themselves. The security guards might have to wait a while.
