New York Yankees’ third coach Phil Nevin made a controversial decision that sent star player Aaron Judge home. Fans were upset about the loss but were even more furious with Nevin’s decision.

Fans crush Phil Nevin for making a blunder

Both the teams had a lot at stake, especially going up against their biggest rivals. Yankees fans expected the team to perform their best, and leave no stone unturned to win.

However, Phil Nevin made a terrible mistake of judgment that led to Aaron Judge leaving the game at a crucial point.

Red Sox dominated the Yankees since the beginning of the game, albeit the Yankees were trying to make a comeback. In the sixth innings of the game, Giancarlo Stanton hit another near-home run, and Judge was on the first base. In a situation that could have been played more safely, Nevin sent Judge out in the open. And hence, Red Sox smoothly removed Judge from the game.

Fans were furious at Phil’s decision, and Twitter exploded with criticism.

Even when Judge was running, he did not get proper signals from Nevin. Naturally, Judge looked confused and slowed his pace for a second. Courtesy of the poor decision, Phil couldn’t execute it properly, and Judge left the game.

 

Eventually, the Red Sox again established their domination, and the Yankees further fell apart. They clinched the AL Wild Card spot, defeating Yankees by 6-2. Although, some fans were also furious at Aaron Judge for not stopping, knowing he could have been out.
