The New York Yankees dugout went viral on Tuesday night during their game against the Oakland Athletics.

Yankees players were seen throwing chewed pieces of gum towards what look to be a sprinkler head. The gist of the game seemed to be closest to the sprinkler wins - in a very gross way.

Video of the players tossing chewed gum out onto the field went viral immediately. Most fans just felt bad for the grounds crew that will have to clean up the field later tonight.

"I'm actually not a huge fan of baseball players making the grounds crew clean up bubble gum off the field," one fan said.

"i hope they're gonna clean that up cause like???? the grounds crew is gonna have to clean that up," said another fan.

One fan suggested the grounds crew should earn a little extra money for cleaning up the Yankees' mess tonight. "grounds crew better get a fifty dollar tip PER piece picked out of the grass later," the fan said.

Should the Yankees be forced to clean up the debris on the field?
