Orioles vs. Yankees ALDS: Empty seats at first pitch for Game 5

The New York Yankees face a do-or-die Game 5 against the Baltimore Orioles, and it seems that Yankee fans aren't all that interested in seeing the game live. The stadium was not completely full as the game began, suggesting many were unimpressed with New York's inability to close Thursday night.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo passed along this picture of the stands at first pitch.

The fans have showed their displeasure by booing several Yankees as they have made outs throughout the series. The most frequent target of the boos has been third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Those that showed up to Yankee Stadium may be happy to see that A-Rod is not in the lineup for Game 5, after he has struggled through the first four games of the playoffs.

The two teams were knotted in a scoreless tie in the third inning. CC Sabathia is on the mound for the Yankees.
