“Pathetic Behavior” From New York Yankees Fans Towards One of Their Own Stars Disgusts the MLB World

Published 10/18/2022, 12:10 PM EDT

The New York Yankees game with the Cleveland Guardians got postponed last night because of inclement weather conditions. It was game five of the ALDS series. Also, the decider game for either team to advance to the ALCS to fight against the Houston Astros. But unfortunately, it got postponed. Fans had to wait for almost four hours before they announced the postponement. 

When the fans were heading out of the stadium, shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa also exited the stadium. While doing so, the fans were seen booing and cussing out the shortstop. Fans of any sport should not be doing this for any player. It was not his fault that the weather was not at par for the tie-breaker to start.

What was the reason for fans cursing New York Yankees shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa?

The postseason debut of the shortstop did not get a good start. He was playing tentatively in the first three games of the ALDS series while trying not to make a mistake. That led Boone to bench Falefa in game four of the series. Till a couple of days ago, the manager had still not decided on whether Falefa will be on the lineup for the fifth and final game. 

Naturally, the fans were not happy with the shortstop’s performance and took their frustration out on him a day later. They came to see the Yankees play but did not get to and took their frustration out on the shortstop as he headed home like others.
