Yankees fans boo Robinson Cano to his face in Tonight Show prank (Video)


The New York Yankees are set to host the Seattle Mariners, and former Bronx Bomber Robinson Cano can probably expect a hostile crowd on his first game back since leaving for a huge contract with the Seattle Mariners. To help fans get ready for the game, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon had a box with Cano’s picture plastered on it put in Bryant Park.

Someone from the Tonight Show than stood there asking fans if they’d boo Cano, and then they’d boo the box. When they were finished they were asked to do it one more time, only this time Robinson Cano had come out of the box and was actually standing there in front of them.

They all changed their tune very quickly in a hilarious bit, check it out below:
