It appears that Yankees fans, or at least Yankees bettors, will be getting some sort of reparations over the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal.

PointsBet Sportsbook, which takes sports bets in New Jersey and Iowa, announced they are refunding anyone who placed money on the Bronx Bombers in a 2019 American League Futures or World Series Futures wager.

It is part of the sportsbook’s “Good Karma Kommittee” initiative in which the company refunds bets in the form of bonus bets, according to CBS Sports. Anyone who placed such a bet receives a notification that a refund has been issued directly into their account.
