Robinson Cano Gets Booed in His Return to Yankee Stadium as a Mariner

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistApril 29, 2014

Robinson Cano spent the first nine seasons of his MLB career with the New York Yankees, but on Tuesday, the second baseman made his first trip to Yankee Stadium as a visitor.

The second baseman signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners in the offseason. 

The baseball world wondered how Cano would be received in his return to Yankee Stadium. Here's how it sounded when he stepped to the plate in the top of the first inning:

Although the at-bat started off with booing, the crowd was delighted when Cano struck out in his first trip to the plate back in the Bronx.

Of course, some fans were able to practice booing Cano earlier in the week.

Not everyone in the stadium booed the former Yankee:
