Houston Astros Star jose altuve He may not be the tallest player in baseball—in fact, he may be one of the shortest—but he’s certainly showing that he’s the big guy when it comes to handling a difficult situation.
Known, perhaps erroneously, as one of the centerpieces of the 2017 sign-theft scandal involving the Astros, Altuve has been the target of some bad criticism everywhere because his team cheated.
Yankee Stadium, of course, is no exception: New York Yankees fans have said some nasty things to Altuve and his family over the past five years.
But Altuve has handled the situation with maturity.
He has been seen autographing Yankees fans this weekend in the middle of a heated competition series between the two teams.
Additionally, he has also given some equipment to Yankees fans.
“Batting practice scene at Yankee Stadium: Jose Altuve just handed his batting gloves to a young child who was wearing a Derek Jeter Jersey,” Astros reporter Chandler Rom tweeted Friday.

Altuve showing the right approach with regard to the sign-theft scandal
Many colleagues have said that Altuve won’t take advantage of the trash can system Back in 2017.
He said he got mad at him when he hit the dustbin during one of his bats.
Obviously, he didn’t want to be a part of it.
He has at least some responsibility for not coming clean any time, but who can blame him for not throwing his teammates under the bus?
In any case, maybe it’s time to move on from the scandal: it happened five years ago and the Astros, however light, received their punishment.
Altuve is doing its job.
Can fans do the same?
