It was an ugly scene in New York this week.
Fans at Yankee Stadium were taunting Astros starting pitcher Zack Greinke during his warmup before he faced the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS. This came shortly after the Astros manager A.J. Hinch and right fielder Josh Reddick complained about fans throwing trash at players and onto the field during the Yankees’ Game 3 defeat.
Chants directed towards Greinke’s battles with a social anxiety disorder and depression came down on the 35-year-old right-hander as he threw to a catcher. Fans leaned the concrete barrier between the stands and the bullpen and shouted insults about Greinke’s mother, too.
Overall just a sad scene.
