After last night’s Braves/Cardinals game, where an umpire demonstrated that literally nobody in Major League Baseball understands the in-field fly rule… well, let’s just say the only winner was Twitter. To wit:
Fans in Atlanta threw with more accuracy than the Braves fielders did.

I watch the baseball for my team the Atlanta. They look like they lose. Still respect for them

Atlanta fans are soft. Finish your beer before you throw it on the field. #bearealfan

Source told me Atlanta fans are now throwing their unused regular-season tickets onto the field.

There’s so much trash on the field in Atlanta. And also in the stands.

Needless to say, Philadelphia still holds the crown for sports douchebaggery, but it’s nice to see Atlanta making a respectable run at the title.
