Chase Utley received quite the amount off boos from the New York Mets fans at Citi Field in game one of the Dodgers’ three game series.
Utley has a rich history of tormenting that entire organization as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies and that has carried over to his time as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Dating back to 2015 when Utley broke Ruben Tejada’s leg, Mets fans have a newfound hatred towards him.
Last season, Chase Utley answered the Citi Field boos by smacking two home runs, one of them being a grand slam. This season Ultey went top deck off of the Mets to really put icing on the cake.
