During the Houston Astros’ Tuesday NL wild-card game, one of their minor league players decided to take his negative comments to Twitter.
Brooks Marlow was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 29th round of the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft.
At 8:46 p.m., Marlow tweeted directly at ESPN’s broadcaster, Jessica Mendoza by saying: “No lady needs to be on ESPN talking during a baseball game specially Mendoza sorry.”
It’s no shock that since Marlow’s sexiest tweet, his tweet has been deleted and his Twitter account has since been set private or gone black.
The Astros have since released the following statement:
The Houston Astros do not condone the tweet posted by one of our minor league players earlier this evening. We have communicated with the player, who agreed that his tweet was inappropriate and insensitive and has since apologized. We also apologize to Ms. Mendoza, who is an outstanding broadcaster that we have had the pleasure of working with this season.
And Marlow later said, “I need to apologize for my tweet earlier regarding Jessica Mendoza. It was inappropriate, insensitive and does not reflect who I am.”
Jessica Mendoza played on the United States women’s national softball team from 2004-2010, where she played outfielder.
On June 30, 2014, Jessica began broadcasting for ESPN and she also works as a color analyst during the Women’s College World Seres and a sideline reporter for ESPNU.
