cliff-leeOct 27, (THAINDIAN NEWS) It is hard not to take things personally when one is being taunted and provoked without any reason. This is what Kristen Lee had to say on the incident of her being cursed, taunted, and being spit upon by Yankee fans at Yankee stadium during the American League Conference series. Kristen Lee, wife of Cliff Lee was sitting in the visiting family section at the Yankee stadium, when Yankee fans started spitting and threw cups of beer from the section above. According to reports, the dubious crowd badmouthed Kristen Lee who reportedly felt hurt and offended for being subjected to this kind of errant behavior by Yankee fans.

Pretty upset over the incident Kristen Lee said, “When people are staring at you, and saying horrible things, it’s hard not to take it personal”. The fans perhaps are unaware of the fact that Cliff Lee will be a free agent this off-season and rumors are that Yankees are interested in utilizing his capabilities. Cliff Lee though appears to have handled the incident in a mature manner and said that one cannot control 50,000 people. Sources reveal that some of the Yankees’ fans got a bit tizzy with the effect of alcohol. Some of them reportedly started bullying Kristen Lee as the match carried on. When questioned whether the impact of the incident will have an effect on his decision as a free agent, he said “No! I don’t know the guy who did it. It could be anyone.”

Cliff Lee further stated that there will always be a couple of ‘goofballs’ in the crowd who feel that they can do what they want. A few people though cannot help but wonder if Cliff Lee will seriously consider playing for the Yankees if approached by them after the incident.
