To celebrate the retirement of its veteran pitcher Mariano “Mo” Rivera, the Yankees held “Mariano Rivera Day” and promised fans that the first 18,000 fans in line at the game would receive a special edition Rivera bobblehead. When the bobbleheads didn’t arrive in time, angry fans were turned away with just a voucher.

There were fights and even an arrest.

But also some very nice people:

Actually that kid looks sad. Hey, did that woman make him pay for the bobblehead? (Exhibit A: the wad of cash in her hand.)

Either way, the Yankees seemed to really anger fans on a day when they were already upset over the retirement of a popular ballplayer. Way to rub salt in the wound, Yanks!
