Why did SNY promote Miguel Castro apparently breaking MLB’s rules?

Once again let’s take a look at MLB rule 4.06

Now let’s look at this video.

Now a sane person would say, “Hey that’s great! What a great moment for that fan!”

However, it appears to be a rule violation. No player may address a spectator before or during a game.  So by the book, this behavior would be OK AFTER a game, but as it appears to be before the game it is an apparent violation.

That’s a stupid rule.
