Steve Bartman

Steve Bartman, What were the odds that the Yankees are not just a rehash of Jeffrey Maier in Game 4 of the ALCS, but also a time when Steve Bartman? By the time Maier happened in the second inning when Robinson Cano homered to right field. A nasty Yankees fan – Jared Macchirole – reached over the ball hit the top of the wall and bounced over a home run. A review should have been made by the referees to make sure it was a homer, but chose not to. The best part was Macchirole that seemed to turn to the right fielder Nelson Cruz after the ball cleared the wall:

The other incident took place at the top of the 5 th. Josh Hamilton went with two men on and two outs with the Rangers 3-2. He fired a ball down the left field line that was very catchable and could have been the final out of the inning. In contrast, a Yankees fan Steve Bartman had a moment reaching over trying to catch the ball. He blocked the left fielder Brett Gardner to get it and could have cost the Yankees a way out. Fortunately Hamilton flew to end the input of another so that the fan has lived in infamy. Here is the Yankees Bartman incident:
