World Series: Rangers chief executive calls Yankees fans 'an embarrassment'

November 1, 2010 |  1:54 pm

Texas Rangers ace Cliff Lee said New York Yankees fans had spit on families of the Texas players during the American League Championship Series. Lee said he would not indict an entire Yankees fan base based on the actions of what he said were "just two or three or four people acting like fools."

Chuck Greenberg, the Rangers' chief executive, was not as charitable.

"I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful," Greenberg said in a Monday interview on Dallas radio station KESN. "They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I've seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment."
