Houston Astros are back in the World Series for the second-time in three-years. Pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. made a great gesture after an incident in New York.
During the American League Championship Series in Game 5 in New York, Astros fans were treated with disrespect by Yankees fans. In fact, according to ABC 13, these three fans needed an escort by the authorities to escape aggressive Yankees fans.
This story is going to have a great ending thanks to McCullers Jr. Cruz Arcia Jr., Nathan Rocha, and Kristina Contreras said they planned to make the trip to New York before the playoffs started.
“We were able to get some tickets,” Arcia said to the TV station. “And we’ve been to nearly every Astros home game for several years.”
The Yankees fans knew they were not a fan of their team with their orange Astros shirts.
“As soon as we got to the stadium, people started yelling at us to go home,” Arcia said.
Tensions continued in their section, according to the Astros fans. They even reportedly bought extra food for the Yankees fans in their section.
“There was this one guy, who was especially bad,” Arcia said. “I had a tray of cheese fries and he said he wanted to take a selfie with me. That’s when I saw his hand go under the tray and he pushed it toward my face.”
The cheese fries went onto his Jose Altuve jersey. That’s when, according to the story, Yankees fans threw food and beer onto the three.
“The guy, who started it was about to hit me, but a police officer and security [guard] stepped in,” Arcia said.
McCullers Jr. connected with Arcia and offered World Series tickets to a game in Houston. The pitcher offered him two World Series tickets for free on the pitcher.
The three fans will be at Game 1 of the series.
