While the Yankees’ players have been publicly supporting the team, their teammates have been on the defensive.

We have a job to do and I think our job is to get ready to play baseball, and we are.”
Fans have also taken to social networks to complain about ticket sales.

A screenshot of the post has since been shared on Twitter.
The team released a statement on the matter on June 19th: “We have been informed by the team that the ticket sales for the Dodgers are going well.
We apologize for the delay, and look forward to returning to the ballpark for our first home home game in eight years.”
Fans were left frustrated on Twitter after the team issued a second postponement for their game on Wednesday night.
On Twitter, a fan called the Yankees “the most hated team in the world,” while another called for the team to be fired.
Fans of the Cleveland Indians have also been vocal about their frustrations with the ticket issue.

On Friday, the team released the following statement: “It is with great sadness that we have to confirm that the Cleveland Indian Fan Club has been issued a 2-game home stand for the 2016-17 MLB season.
We are grateful to the fans for their patience and support, and will not delay the Tribe’s return to Cleveland.
We are in the process of meeting with the Tribe to address their concerns and to finalize a plan to resume the Tribe home schedule on July 16.”
Fans also took to social sites to complain that the Yankees would not return to Yankee Stadium until the weather cleared, leading to fans to tweet their displeasure.
