Yankees Advance And Will Play Boston In ALDS, Alabama’s Saban Criticizes Students For Empty Seats

BASEBALL

In a wild-card do-or-die game with the winner advancing to the American League Division Series, the New York Yankees came out strong and dominated all night to beat the Oakland Athletics. Power hitter Aaron Judge made a statement in his first at-bat with a home run that gave the Yankees a 2-0 lead.  Judge credits the energy of the crowd with his performance.  “I was feeding off of (the crowd) from the National Anthem. The last couple of seconds of the National Anthem, I couldn’t hear the ending because the crowd was getting so loud. That’s Yankee Stadium for you.” All night you could hear the fans chanting “We want Boston!” Yankees head to Boston to take on the Red Sox Friday night for the first game of the ALDS. Yankees 7, Athletics 2.

FOOTBALL

#1 Alabama keeps winning, but that doesn’t give the fans an excuse to miss games. Coach Nick Saban addressed the issue in a press conference and did not mince words when he described how hard the players work, “They introduce our players and nobody even cheers.” He went on to say, “There’s a part of it where other people need to support them too, and there’s got to be a spirit that makes it special to play here, because that’s what makes it special to be here.” He continued, “But to see half the student section not full, I’ve never seen that since I’ve been here before.” Alabama takes to the road to play Arkansas on Saturday.
