Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward had a problem with Yankee Stadium after Gleber Torres’ walk of home run for a 2-1 win over New York on Sunday.

Torres hit the field opposite the home run and the ball clears the right-field fence. Woodward’s problem was with the small porch even though the ball traveled 369 feet.
