Yankees Fan Throws Back Home Run Ball, Hits Brett Gardner in the Head

Nothing says protecting home turf like throwing back home run balls hit by the opposing team, right? Nope. In fact, it’s pretty juvenile — but I do understand the appeal of being drunk and giving into the mass of people egging you on to do it.

Unfortunately, one fan’s attempt at being the section hero failed miserably after nailing Brett Gardner in the back of the head with a ball blasted by Jose Bautista:

You’d think Yankees fans who catch home run balls would savor the fact that they stole one away from that Zack Hample guy. Guess not.

Just saw on TV that the fan who threw back Jose Bautista's home run ball hit Brett Gardner in the back with it. #YoureDoingItWrong
