Yankees security people, aka the Trost Toasties, continue to play bully-ball. On Tuesday, they prevented a scene, one that would encourage more parents to bring kids to the ballpark, from getting maximum exposure.
Happened Tuesday night (Orioles-Yankees). On the Baltimore TV broadcast, viewers got pictures of a kid, wearing an Orioles cap, having a great time. He was sitting in primo (front of the moat) seats. So happy was this young man, O’s voices Gary Thorne and Jim Palmer kept commenting on him.
They suggested their grandstand reporter, Amber Theoharis, interview the child. She tried. Well-embedded (concrete) moat moles report as Theoharis made her way toward the young fan, she was intercepted by the Toasties. When it was suggested she just pass the microphone down to the kid, the Toasties would not let the microphone travel in front of the moat.
Fortunately, Theoharis just split. Dissing a Toastie could be hazardous to your health.
Holy Elaine Benes Batman!
I wonder if the Toastie told Amber Theohans “Who would cross the Trost Moat of Yankee Stadium must answer me these questions three, ere the other side she see….”
