Yankees' Robinson Cano: Kansas City fans crossed line yelling at family

http://youtu.be/oR8KAmud3xY

Kansas City Royals fans booed New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano repeatedly during the All-Star Game festivities because Cano failed to select hometown favorite Billy Butler to participate in the Home Run Derby.

The reaction didn't bother Cano. But he was troubled by the way his family was also targeted, reports FoxSports.com's Jon Paul Morosi.

“The only thing I didn’t like was the way they treated my family when they went to the restroom,” Cano said. “Hopefully it stops here and (doesn’t) go forward.”

...“They were yelling stuff to my family, which I don’t see (as) the right thing. This is a game. We’re All-Stars. If I get booed, I don’t really care. But stuff with your family, that’s crossing the line.”

Kansas City fans will have some time to get over their anger at Cano. The Yankees won't play in Kansas City again until next season.

Because of the reaction Cano received, Major League Baseball could implement a new rule requiring a player on the host city's team to be selected for the Derby. Prince Fielder received a negative reaction at last year's game in Arizona for failing to pick the Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton for the Derby.
