New York Yankees increase security in stands; 'Bleacher Creatures' taunt Cleveland Guardians OF Myles Straw

NEW YORK -- The Yankees say they've increased security in the stands a day after fans threw bottles, cans and other debris at Cleveland Guardians outfielders following a walk-off victory.

The Bronx's famed Bleacher Creatures greeted Guardians center fielder Myles Straw with chants of "Crybaby!" on Sunday after Straw called Yankee Universe the "worst fan base on the planet." Straw was at the center of a tense ninth inning Saturday that include his face-to-face confrontation with at least one fan.

A security guard was stationed at the bottom of each aisle in right field on Sunday, but otherwise, all seemed normal.
