During the delay, a contentious Guardians outfielder throws a football with Yankees fans
Back in April, some rowdy Yankees fans threw garbage at Straw after the outfielder scaled the wall and exchanged words with fans in order to defend teammate Steven Kwan.

Following the incident, The Guardian expressed his disdain for Yankees fans, labeling them “classless” and “the worst fan base.”
The outfielder and his teammate, Will Brennan, emerged from the third-base dugout and began tossing a football back and forth on the warning track, a few steps away from the tarp.
Straw decided to open the game of catch up to the fans at one point, throwing the football to those seated in the lower bowl of Yankee Stadium. Following a few tosses, the 28-year-old reared back and struck a fan in the first row of the second deck. Fans erupted in joy when the fan hauled it in.
Straw revealed before the ALDS series that he received death threats as a result of the incident.
Straw appears to be willing to throw a football with those same “classless” fans.
