Tracy Morgan Gets Applause of Yankees Fans After Showing up to First Game Since Accident

Posted on

Tracy Morgan was in the stands to cheer the New York Yankees to victory against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, but ended up receiving a little applause of his own.

The 46-year-old Bronx native, a long staple at Yankees games, sat in the front row with his fiancée Megan Wollover and daughter Maven, 2. When the comedian’s face was shown on the scoreboard during the game, the crowd immediately broke into cheers and applause. Morgan smiled, and waved for the camera.

The game appears to be Morgan’s first following the tragic 2014 bus accident that left him critically injured, and fellow comedian James McNair dead.

Morgan’s limousine was slammed into by a Walmart tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike. The megastore settled with the actor almost a year after the accident, and Morgan dropped the lawsuit.
