The Philadelphia Phillies might not have fans cheering them on inside Citizens Bank Park, but that didn’t stop the team’s supporters from catching the attention of New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone on Thursday. A group of fans who gather behind the fence of Ashburn Alley, the center field concourse — dubbed the Phandemic Krew, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer — was blowing an air horn when Yankees starter Jordan Montgomery was making his pitches. Boone asked the umpires about it, but since the fans were on 10th Street and not inside the stadium, the umpires had no recourse. After the Phils’ broadcast mentioned Boone’s visit to the umpires, the fans began chanting Boone’s name, but they did stop blowing the air horn during pitches. “The environment we’re in, it’s almost like a golf environment where that sudden thing can … So I thought there was a timing element to it,” Boone told reporters, according to the Inquirer.
