Yankee fans taunt David Price with ‘who’s your daddy?’ chant
New York Yankees fans broke out an oldie but a goodie during Sunday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox.
After David Price threw behind Didi Gregorius in the first inning of the game, the “Bleacher Creatures” taunted the southpaw with a “who’s your daddy?” chant.

The Bleacher Creatures are a group of fans who sit in the seats beyond the right field fence. They are hardcore supporters known for being tough on opposing players, and sometimes even Yankees players. They continued the chant in the third inning when the Yankees rallied for multiple runs off Price.
The “who’s your daddy” chant dates back to Pedro Martinez’s rivalry with the Yankees. In 2004, the former Red Sox pitcher was hit hard by the Yankees and said he had to call them his “daddy” for dominating him. That led Yankees fans to taunt Pedro with a “who’s your daddy” chant.
Price has had some serious struggles pitching against the Yankees, especially last season, which factor into the chants. He has an ERA over nine as a Red Sox pitcher at Yankee Stadium.
