Security officials removed two unidentified men from Yankee stadium because they unfurled a Trump-supporting banner during the second game of a doubleheader between the hometown Yankees and the visiting Toronto Blue Jays.
The pair unveiled their large banner showcasing “Trump Won Save America” from the second deck behind first base, as seen in a video below.
The crowd had contrasting reactions to the banner, with plenty of boos and cheers mixed in.
Before a security guard arrived, a fan jumped up trying to pull the banner down.
The security guard then struggled with the two men to confiscate the banner. One of the men was handcuffed, The New York Post reported.
The men were escorted away by security officials, as they earned a burst of applause within the stadium.
“Sounded like the entire crowd was booing until security confiscated the banner, which then resulted in a loud cheer,” Sports Illustrated reporter Max Goodman tweeted.
According to the Major League Baseball website, Yankee Stadium has a set of policies and procedures in place “to provide a secure and enjoyable environment for everyone.”
“Banners and signs are permitted provided they are baseball-related, in good taste, not of a commercial nature and not supported by wood, metal or other materials that could be injurious in a crowded public setting,” as written on the website.
“Any banner or sign may be removed, at any time, at the sole and absolute discretion of the Yankees.”
