MLB to implement code of conduct for fans at ballparks in 2018

Will Yankees suck still be allowed?

Over the past four months, Kennedy said MLB has encouraged teams to exchange ideas about ways to promote inclusion and stamp out intolerance.

“There’s not been any directive or mandate, but there’s been support from the commissioner’s office for sharing ideas and looking at different policies and procedures,” Kennedy said. “I actually think most clubs have a zero-tolerance policy with respect to fan enjoyment and creating a safe environment.”

YES: Epic Don La Greca Rant

Responding to a caller blaming Girardi for not pinch hitting for Judge in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s game against the Mets. (Seriously.)

You’re a clown, Steve. I’m tired of the clown show! Tired of it! You’ve got a playoff team. You’ve got a team that’s won three in a row and you’re miserable because you love being miserable. Because that’s what you’re about. You’re a clown, Steve. I’m tired of it! I’m tired of you wasting our time on the air with your clown shoe garbage! Tired of it.

CBS Denver: Charlie Blackmon Kid Meets The Real Deal

IT’S THE TWO-YEAR OLD!!!

The little boy in the viral video who screamed for Rockies center fielder Charlie Blackmon got to meet the real deal Friday night.

Whenever Blackmon would to the plate, 2-year-old Tommy Carlson would get excited.

Really excited.

FTW: Chris Christie roasted by announcer and booed after catching foul ball at Mets game

Clearly, the fans mistook him for Bryce Harper.

Chris Christie caught a foul ball with one hand from his seat at Citi Field during the Mets-Cardinals game on Tuesday night. If an ordinary fan did that, some of the crowd probably would’ve cheered, but the New Jersey governor didn’t get an applause. He was booed at the stadium.

Then, the broadcasters poked fun at Christie on the air.

“Nice to see him get from the beach here to the ballpark,” one said as the other laughed.
