Chuck Greenberg's comments earlier Monday about about the behavior of New York Yankees fans during the American League Championship Series has led him to issue an apology. He said Yankees fans were "awful," and "either violent or apathetic." Here's his statement:
"Earlier today, in the course of praising the extraordinary support and enthusiasm of Texas Rangers fans, I unfairly and inaccurately disparaged fans of the New York Yankees. Those remarks were inappropriate. Yankees fans are among the most passionate and supportive in all of baseball."
"I have spoken directly to Hal Steinbrenner and Randy Levine to apologize for my intemperate comments.
"I would like to express again how proud we are of our fans and how remarkably they have supported the Rangers throughout lean times and now during this magical season."
