"I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful," Greenberg told ESPN Radio in Dallas. "They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I've seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment."
Greenberg called Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner to apologize for his comments and issued a statement, saying Yankees fans are "passionate" and his remarks on the radio were "intemperate."
