The New York Yankees won their spring training matchup against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday, 6-3, but the Bombers may have had an unfair advantage.
A fan in the outfield stands was the Yanks’ tenth man, acting as an outfielder in the top of the ninth.
While not wearing a Yankees uniform, the fan did wear a navy bandana with the Yankees’ interlocking «NY» logo on it. He, too, rocked a long-sleeved black dri-fit, purple shorts, black leggings and a fanny pack, the ultimate signs of ultimate athleticism.

The fan also had his fielder’s mitt ready and even struck an athletic stance for each pitch.

When the Tigers’ Andy Ibáñez struck out, the fans packed up their belongings and ran to right field to prepare for switch-hitter Andrew Knapp, who was hitting from the left side.
This isn’t the first game of spring for fans, either. Earlier this month, he attended a night game at the Yankees’ spring training complex.
Some on the internet believehe is the same boy stealing a Juan Soto home run off the glove of a 17-year-old last year in Kansas City.
That fan was identified as Mark Kirsch, who is the star of YouTube’s «Man vs. Impossible.»
The Yankees can probably use him. With center fielder Harrison Bader starting the season on the disabled list and Giancarlo Stanton often at DH when he’s healthy, the Yanks don’t have many solid outfield options other than Aaron Judge.
