Red Sox manager Alex Cora briefly pulled his team off the field in the sixth inning Saturday night after Verdugo was hit in the back by a ball thrown from the left field seats.

Angry Executioner yelled at the fans and was restrained by first base coach Tom Goodwin when the game was stopped in pouring rain. The fan was expelled from the stadium.

«The Yankees repudiate reckless, disorderly and dangerous behavior that endangers the safety of players, field staff or other fans,» the Yankees said in a statement Sunday about the Verdugo incident.

“There is absolutely no place for it at Yankee Stadium. The safety of everyone at Yankee Stadium, including guests in the stands and players on the field, will always be the top priority. ”

For Verdugo it was a «horrible» situation

Verdugo tossed a ball into the stands at a young Red Sox fan, but a Yankees fan intercepted it and threw it onto the field, hitting the outfielder.

«It’s horrible, shameful, unacceptable,» New York coach Aaron Boone said later. The Red Sox element returned to left field when play resumed after an argument with umpires near the Boston dugout.
