The Yankees finally had an air horn, drum line of Feely fans

It should come as no surprise that fans in town who once boo Santa Claus will be able to give the Phillies a home-field advantage – even when they are not allowed in the ballpark.

For a second straight day with the Yankees in the city, a group of fans gathered outside the center-field gates at Citizens Bank Park and made a noise.

On Wednesday, it included a drum line and a raga to sign catch JT Realmuto to make an expansion.

And in a 5-4 loss to the Phillies on Thursday, there was a cowbell, as well as a wind horn, trying to hit the Yankees hitter.

The most glaring example came in the top of the third, when Gleiber Torres ran to the right to end the inning.

After being dismissed, Aaron Boone came out of the dugout to talk to the umpires to see if there was anything they could do, but even he knew he had more shots to solve it. Were not.

“It seemed like a horn is coming off as a pitch [was thrown], ” Said Boone at-bat. “The environment we are in is almost like a golf environment.”

He said that “sudden” noise could be a distraction, especially if it came at the right time.

“I felt there was an element of time, maybe,” Boone said. “Of course I didn’t think [the umpires] Will be able to do anything about it. I don’t necessarily know who or where it was coming from, but it was at least something I wanted to point out. ”

Boone was told that until he was coming from inside the ballpark, he was right: there wasn’t much.

Jordan Montgomery said he heard of the racket “but it is no different from the fans in the stand. It’s a mess that they are out there, but that’s what it is.”

Mike Tochman said he was not surprised they went to such lengths to make an impact, as the group nearly doubled to 10 on Thursday night.

“You can hear it,” Tutcheman said of the quack. “It was very loud. Philadelphia is known for having a very passionate fan base. They want to find a way to support their team despite not meeting at the stadium. And that’s how he chose tonight to show his awesome. ”
