    Rex Barney was a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers who pitched a no hitter in 1948.  In 1974 the Orioles hired him to be the PA announcer at the late lamented Memorial Stadium, he made the move to Camden Yards in 1992 and was Orioles PA announcer until the day he was found dead in his bed - natural causes - during the 1997 season.

    In Barney's autobiography, he described his very first game at Memorial Stadium, when he came on the loud speaker and announced:

    "Will the owner of a car bearing New York tags number ......"  

    The whole ball park started booing when he said the words "New York".

    "Please report to your vehicle.  Your car is on fire."

    And everyone started cheering.  And we weren't even playing the Yankees.

    And yes vandalism should be prosecuted, if that's what it was.  

    But I won't hold this against you.
