Yankee fan tosses decoy ball back on Marrero first career HR

Posted on Sep 30 2015 - 6:46pm by Tyler Scionti


This pisses me off to no end.

Devon Marrero, a rookie getting his first taste of the big leagues, hit his first major league home run the other day. The opposite field shot sailed into the right field stands as he rounded the bases, and was promptly tossed back onto the field for the rookie to keep.

So it seemed.

Instead it was actually a rubber toy ball with a Yankee logo on, as the real home run ball has been stolen away and kept from the Sox rookie.

And thus Yankee fans prove themselves to once again be the absolute scum of the earth. Honestly can you really find a group of individuals with less class? I’ve seen drunken winos with a better sense of humanity than the poor excuse you see in the Bronx. Like really, it’s almost like they find the absolute worst people in the world and have them root for the same team.


Say what you want about Sox fans but at least we aren’t that bad.

Honestly though they don’t even give a crap about their own team. The Yankees are currently fighting to keep their spot in the playoffs and they are doing it largely unwatched. The team with one of the highest payrolls in baseball and with some of the best in star power cannot even keep their fairweather fans who are flocking to the Mets like moths to a lightbulb.

You know what New York, keep the damn ball, we don’t want your germs getting into our system. Even if you hold on to your precious playoff spot you’re not going anywhere come October and even if you do no one will be rooting for you.


I have the ball, I gave my name and number to Yankee security so that mr. Marrero could get his first home run ball back. I never heard from anyone. Like many, my life is busy and and so I waited for someone to reach out to me. It has not happened. I was at Yankee stadium celebrating my sons 16th birthday. of course we wanted to keep the ball, until it was explained to us that it was his first home run. I am still willing to give the ball back, just waiting for somebody to tell me they want it. So to the author of the comments above, please keep your venom in your fangs until you know something about what you are talking about. Good advice for an entire society who like to show anger first and then seek understanding later.
