Former Red Sox catcher wife Jason Varitek said a Yankees fan spat at their 9-year-old daughter while walking to their car Saturday night in The Bronx.
“I can handle ‘Curse Words’ that were downright dirty and bad,” Catherine Varitek tweeted Saturday night. “What our kids just went through going to our car at Yankee Stadium was scary.”
The Yankees said they were unaware of the alleged incident, which apparently took place hours after a Yankees fan threw a baseball at Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo in the sixth inning of the win in New York.
The unidentified Yankees fan who threw the ball towards Verdugo was later banned from all MLB stadiums.
“Baseball shame should be fun, not harmful and offensive,” said Catherine Varitek.
Jason Varitek, a former Red Sox captain who was part of the 2004 championship that stunned the Yankees in the ALCS and went on to win the World Series, is currently assistant coach to Boston manager Alex Cora.
