Booing the Yankees on the day of Steinbrenner's death: Classless

Way to go, L.A. :-t

To be fair, I doubt a lot of people know about it. A lot of them just woke up and left for the stadium.

Edit: they cheered Jeter when they had a recording of Bob Sheppard announce his AB, after informing the crowd of his passing.

Rest in Peace

Bummer :-/
I loved that he made baseball more interesting on one hand, and on the other I hated that he could have off-seasons like 2008 where he bought everything.
I really hope the one nutcase son he has (Hank?) takes over from the steady one, that would be entertaining. :-b

There were clear boos mixed in there. You could tell they were conflicted. I still find it hard to believe, in this age of information & technology, that the majority of the crowd was unaware of the Boss's passing.

Edit: That was still different. The announcer basically said, "Now we're going to play a clip of an announcer who just died." Even the most soulless of people wouldn't boo that (although a few still managed).

So your saying that because George passed away then Yankee players should be applauded? Sorry....RIP George...but I still hate your Yankees.

Nope. Just asking to hold off the boos for one day. That's it.
