Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo was absolutely furious with a Yankees fan during Saturday’s Red Sox-Yankees game.
In the sixth inning, the Red Sox-Yankees game was briefly delayed after a Yankees fan threw a ball at Verdugo in the outfield. An angry Verdugo exchanged words with the fan who was escorted out of the stadium by security.

Verdugo had been going back and forth with fans here last month. That was all verbal. Looks like they ID’d and escorted out the fan who threw the ball at Verdugo this time. Play resumes. https://t.co/fao15h9IJN

The game eventually resumed and Yankees fans could later be heard chanting “f*ck Verdugo.”
“F- Verdugo” chants at Yankee Stadium, stay classy.
