I have never been to Yankee Stadium, so I have no idea about these “Bleacher Creatures” and their propensity to scream things at people on the field. But, for the similarly uneducated of “youse” out there, what they do is chant each player’s name to start off the game. When a player’s name gets chanted, he tips his cap to the fans.
Oooo’s and ahhhh’s all around for the majesty of Yankee Stadium, right? Until someone like Melky Cabrera decides to get greedy and, as NYY STADIUM INSIDER tells us, tip his cap while fielding the ball. Silly Melky, tricks are for A-Rod.

Nothing really to see here, folks. Melky just decided to get ridiculously greedy and show-off to the fans at the beginning of the game. And he paid the ultimate price: repeated personal humiliation at a blog level for the rest of his life.
