Disclaimer: Cliff Lee has denied all rumors that Yankee fans spit on his wife.
It was reported in October 2010 that the wife of then Ranger’s pitcher Cliff Lee’s, Kristen, was spit on by Yankee fans during the American League Championship Series games in New York.
Kristen Lee spoke with USA Today about the incident, saying "The fans did not do good things in my heart. When people are staring at you, and saying horrible things, it's hard not to take it personal."
Cliff added, "Some people get a little alcohol in them and act inappropriate. There's so many people there you can't control them all. I know it's been made into a big deal, but that's really all it is, just two or three or four people just acting like fools, and 50,000, you can't group them all together. But there's always going to be a couple goofballs in the crowd that think they have a right to do that stuff."
