Yankees fans were on their best behavior during the ALCS, which apparently impressed Cliff Lee’s wife:
Perhaps the Rangers’ greatest sales pitch simply was having Kristen sit in the visiting family section at Yankee Stadium during the playoffs. She says there were ugly taunts. Obscenities. Cups of beer thrown. Even fans spitting from the section above.
“The fans did not do good things in my heart,” Kristen says.
“When people are staring at you, and saying horrible things, it’s hard not to take it personal.”
Not to worry — Yankees fans treat you like royalty once you wear the pinstripes.
And WABC’s Scott Clark just called out Philadelphia, saying on the 6 p.m. news that this was behavior you’d expect from Phillies fans, not Yankees fans. Maybe he’s right — in Philadelphia they’d probably vomit on the players’ wives.
