Yankees fans went too far by throwing baseballs in anger

This isn’t the first time fans have thrown things onto a baseball field this season. Angels fans made a statement to the Astros by throwing a trash can or two onto the field. Those disruptions were cheered by many across the league, but they also held a significantly different tenor to what Yankees fans did.

Anger at the stadium has to be kept under control, no matter how disappointing a team is playing.

The Yankees have lost six of their last eight and will drop to 5-8 with a loss to the Rays, putting them at the bottom of the AL East.
