A Yankees fan tried to throw back a Mets' homer at Citi Field, but Mets fans would not allow it

During the Yankees' 6-5 win over the Mets at Citi Field on Monday night, a Yankees fan caught Matt Reynolds' three-run homer in the sixth inning. Maybe because he figured he was still in New York City, it was fair game to throw the homer back from whence it came. There were surely other Yankees fans who would back him up, right? Yankee Stadium was just a 16-minute car ride away. How did that Frank Sinatra song go again? "If you can throw it back here, you can throw it back anywhere."
Nope and nope.

Fortunately, judging by the fan's deliriously happy face on the right in the below photo, it was all fun and games. And, hey guy! You do get to take home a souvenir.
