The Subway Series is getting ugly, as a Mets fan was caught throwing a drink at New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge as he tried to catch a fly ball.
The distraction didn’t impact Judge much, but it’s clearly an example of the fan experience going too far. Judge is one of the faces of professional baseball, so he’s an easy target for opposing fans. It also doesn’t help that he stands a gargantuan 6-foot-7.
Nonetheless, his size should not free him up for free shots from fans in the bleachers.
The Mets won Friday’s game rather handily to continue the Yankees slide. Luckily for the Bronx Bombers, the Blue Jays also fell to the lowly Orioles, allowing them to maintain their half-game lead in the AL Wild Card race.

Judge took some offense to the play, but in the end he seemed more bothered by the scoreboard, as the Mets won fairly easily in the first matchup of this three-game set.
The Yankees need every win they can get, and while any rivalry series is tough, the Mets aren’t exactly the Dodgers.
