According to AP, the incident occurred during the six innings of Saturday’s match when Yankee Stadium fans threw the ball at Verdugo in the rain.
Verdugo told reporters that when a Yankees fan grabbed the ball instead and threw it back and hit an outfielder, he threw the ball at a fan of the young Red Sox on the stand.
AP reported that uninjured Verdugo had to scream at the crowd and be detained by Tom Goodwin’s first-base coach.
Unidentified fans were escorted from the stadium and were not arrested. NJ.com reported..
