Yankees-Red Sox game slightly delayed after fan throws ball at Alex Verdugo in Boston


The New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game on Saturday night at Yankee Stadium was delayed more than once, first by the threat of rain – and then briefly because a Yankees fan threw a ball at Red Sox left fielder Alex Verdugo.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters after the game that it was his understanding that the fan hit Verdugo “point-blank from behind”.
